The continental-style square just moments from the station entrance

Pancras Square is the beautiful new square at the gateway to King’s Cross. The design is inspired by the atmosphere of a continental town square, minus the traffic.

giant pin oak marks the entrance from Battle Bridge Place just outside the stations. Continue into the square and you’ll see a water feature cascading from top to bottom, flowing towards the view of the St Pancras Chambers Clock Tower. With lawned areas and cafe tables beneath the trees, this is a lovely spot to pause and relax.

Bars and restaurants at Pancras Square

Restaurants and cafés surround the square making this the perfect spot for a sunny breakfast, alfresco lunch or an after-work drink. From the stations, the striking German Gymnasium is the first of these together with Vinoteca, and Granger & Co from Australian chef Bill Granger. Further into the square you’ll find Drake & Morgan and Korean BBQ at Kimchee. For cafe/takeout options, chose between TortillaWasabi, craft coffee shop Notes, and the latest addition – Maple & KINGS from Adriana Wu.

Also on the square is the new Pancras Square Leisure Centre and public library in the London Borough of Camden building at 5 Pancras Square.
