Splish splash

Fun in the fountains at Granary Square

The fountains at Granary Square, King's Cross

Hands down the most popular thing for kids to do at King’s Cross is to splash and play in the fountains at Granary Square. There are an incredible 1,080 choreographed jets, each individually controlled and lit. The jets squirt and splash in patterns, surprising and delighting kids of all ages. It’s the perfect way to cool off on a warm day. Even a bit of cloud and a chill in the air usually isn’t enough to stop a kid’s urge to take their socks off and get wet. It’s virtually car-free here so your children can have fun without the noise and worry of London traffic.

Bring a picnic, there are tables and benches dotted around the square. Or take advantage of KERB street food market or nearby Waitrose for take-out treats. Toilets and changing facilities can be found outside Waitrose and at Coal Drops Yard. Don’t forget to bring a towel and a change of clothes, you’ll need it! Granary Square fountains are open daily and are on during daylight hours, so more time for fun during the summer months.

For the obligatory ice-cream stop, just around the corner you’ll find Ruby Violet, serving delicious handmade ice creams and sorbets. Afterwards, why not visit the Global Generation Skip Garden.
