King's Cross
An extraordinary piece of London



King’s Cross has a rich and colourful past. Its location at the meeting point of road, river and rail has shaped its history. This can be seen today in the old buildings, the layout of the streets, and in the stories of the communities based here. This history is in the fabric of King’s Cross and is a big part of what makes it a special place.


“King’s Cross is a model of constructive conservation that captures the special quality of London as it has grown over the centuries.” English Heritage
