King's Cross
An extraordinary piece of London

 
 

Pancras Square

The new London square at the gateway to King's Cross

People and plants on a sunny lunchtime in Pancras Square, King's CrossPancras 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, but without the traffic.

giant pin oak marks the entry point to the square from Battle Bridge Place. With lawned areas and seating beneath mature trees, the square is both a green route from the stations and a place to pause and relax.

Water cascades through the space in a series of stepped terraces flowing towards the view of the St Pancras Chambers Clock Tower.

The new office buildings around the square are already home to the likes of London Borough of Camden, Louis Vuitton, PRS for Music and more. These companies will soon be joined by Google, media giant Havas and Universal Music. In time, a new pedestrian bridge across Regent’s Canal will link Pancras Square to Granary Square and the new shopping area – Coal Drops Yard.
