Kerb Brunch, a collaboration with Emerald Street, in Lewis Cubitt Square, King's CrossExplore the Handyside area

There’s a lively mix of people who live, work and study in this part of King’s Cross. New workspace, housing, educational and cultural facilities are being developed and the shopping and leisure destination Coal Drops Yard is well underway. Soon the heritage buildings and cobbled streets of the Coal Drops will be buzzing with boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and food stalls, joining the many restaurants, cafés and bars that are already here. The area is also home to London’s top creative students. The campus for Central Saint Martins with its 5,000 staff and students is in the Granary Building.

The beautiful new public spaces off Handyside, – Lewis Cubitt Park and Square and Handyside Gardens are open and being enjoyed by the public, with Gasholder Park on the banks of the canal coming next. With a multi-use games area and a health club at either end of the street, and Pancras Square Leisure Centre just across the canal, there are plenty of opportunities for a lunch-time workout. Gym and yoga studio Frame is in ArtHouse and MW5 Fitness runs bootcamp sessions and running clubs most days.

Easy to get to

Handyside Street is the main commercial thoroughfare to the north of the canal and is easily accessible by bus, bike or car. The King’s Cross St Pancras transport hub with six tube lines, two mainline stations and Eurostar is within a nine minute walk.
