King’s Cross opens its doors for Open House 2014

Posted: Thursday 11th September 2014

Want to know what’s being built at King’s Cross? Keen to see what’s going on behind the scenes in this new hub? Or perhaps to understand what the Victorian buildings on site were once used for? Then visit King’s Cross during Open House 2014 for your chance to get exclusive access to normally off-limit areas of this fast-changing quarter.

This year’s Open House will take place during the weekend of 20 & 21 September, and at King’s Cross we are getting ready to welcome visitors and explain more about King’s Cross, one of Europe’s most lauded urban development projects. Throughout the weekend we will be hosting bookable site tours, giving visitors the opportunity to access historic structures such as the Gasholder No.8 and the Fish and Coal buildings. There will also be tours of the Granary Building from award-winning architects Stanton Williams, who will explain more about the design of the fantastic home of University of the Arts London.

Visitors will also get the chance to explore the new areas of public realm, as well as tours around the construction site that will explain the history of the site, the scheme so far and what’s to come.

Tours should be pre-booked here. Although there may be some space available on the day, pre-booking is the only way to guarantee your place
