  • King's Cross - An extraordinary part of London is taking shape

After a decade of careful planning and a lot of very hard work with many partners, the first phase of King's Cross is now open to the public.

The location, the connections, the canalside setting, the rich and varied heritage, an exciting cultural scene, a thriving business community, and a strong sense of local community. All these things come together at King’s Cross to make it unique, exciting and really quite special.

The King's Cross story
