Take the light tunnel to King’s Cross

This subway tunnel with a difference will take you from St Pancras International and King’s Cross stations towards Granary Square, Coal Drops Yard and the shops and restaurants around the canal.

The 90-metre long tunnel features an ‘art wall’ made from LED lights which is used to showcase artistic commissions. The tunnel has also been used as a catwalk during London Fashion Week, hosted CogX – the Artificial Intelligence festival, and even the occasional yoga workshop.

The gently curving tunnel features an ‘art wall’ made from LED lights. Running the entire length of the tunnel, the lightwall contains 190 controllable vertical pixels set behind 12mm toughened glass.

The tunnel was designed by Allies & Morrison Architects, Speirs + Major, and light artists The Light Lab. It’s open to pedestrians Monday-Sunday, 7am until 8pm.
