Rebranded as London’s new ‘Knowledge Quarter’ the regeneration of Kings Cross is extraordinary.
On this walk we’ll be exploring the historic backstreets of Kings Cross and St Pancras alongside the incredible new developments of Coal Drops Yard and Granary Square.
We’ll visit the back streets of Kings Cross and go inside the glorious St Pancras Station (as well as the charming ancient churchyard of St Pancras Old Church). Meeting the characters who shaped the area and the ambitious plans that made their mark on the landscape.

The meeting point is outside Kings Cross Rail Station, outside the station in the main plaza and beneath the central clock tower.
