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 around the square. Or take advantage of the nearby KERB street food market or the Benugo van for take-out treats. Also here is Yumchaa tea shop with seating on the square. You can enjoy a cuppa while the kids splash around. Toilets and changing facilities can also be found on the square. Don’t forget to bring a change of clothes! You’ll need it. Granary Square fountains are open daily from 07.40am – 23.30pm.
