King's Cross
An extraordinary piece of London


Street Naming Competition


In March 2013, the King’s Cross Partnership launched a public competition to name some of the new streets being created within the King’s Cross development.

The competition attracted interest from all over the world, not only the local community. Over 10,000 entries were received – far more than was ever anticipated – presenting the challenge of how to choose a shortlist of names from such a wealth of suggestions.

The output is a process which delves into the history of King’s Cross and assesses what and who have helped shape it into the place it is now and what the future might hold.


At the King’s Cross Visitor Centre
