Retail Space at Canalside

The social hub at King's Cross


The Lighterman terrace, on Regents Canal at King's Cross

The heart of King’s Cross

With the thriving Granary Square at its core, Canalside is the social heart of King’s Cross. In a few short years, the area has become one of the city’s favourite meeting spots. People from across London and beyond are drawn here by the exciting dining scene and the unique and atmospheric surroundings.

Canalside brings people together in a community atmosphere that is both buzzing and comfortable. With a year-round programme of events and happenings, it’s the perfect place for people of all ages to meet up and enjoy life.

Canalside shops, bars and restaurants

The ever-popular Caravan King’s Cross was the first restaurant to open here. The restaurant was soon joined by Granary Square Brasserie. The eateries are in the atmospheric Granary building with south-facing terraces looking out over Granary Square and the canal.

These restaurants were recently joined by The Lighterman in a stunning three-story pavilion building with terraces on the canal towpath and Granary Square.

Just off Granary Square, Waitrose opened its largest Central London store in a beautifully restored Victorian train shed. The store is unique in that it offers both a wine bar and a cookery school. Waitrose is neighbours with artisan ice cream parlour, Ruby Violet.
