Kings Cross & Euston
International transport hubs, quiet nature reserves, award winning art and charming residential streets: King's Cross and Euston have it all. With some of the busiest stations in London, Euston, King's Cross and St. Pancras, this area is the first taste of the capital for many visitors and commuters. From here you can get anywhere in the country, either take a bus, tube or hop on the train.
Away from the bustle there's a lot to explore. Discover the Hardy Tree in St. Pancras Churchyard or explore two acres of wild green space at Camley Street Nature Park by the Regent's Canal - both just behind St. Pancras International station. Take a stroll to Camden town via the canal, or watch the live-aboard narrowboats go through the lock. Sit down and relax on the steps in front of Central St. Martins University of the Arts – and don’t forget to check out the Floating Cinema’s program as they often have screenings here. Feeling hungry? Have some smashing brunch at Caravan, or just that Hair of the Dog you so badly needed.
Along the Euston Road you can explore the world's knowledge at the British Library, cure your curiosity at the Wellcome Collection, and find not one but three Anthony Gormley sculptures. A hidden gem is the Crypt Gallery, under St. Pancras Church, after which you can end your day with some artisan cider from the Euston Tap just across the road.
