King’s Cross has undergone a huge transformation over the last five years. The station and surrounding locations are almost unrecognisable with pedestrian areas, new office buildings and grand public spaces with parks, stores and cafes. This staggering regeneration scheme has attracted Google and a host of other leading businesses taking advantage of the array of local amenities and the area’s proximity to the West End and City.
When you factor in the scale of the development around King’s Cross it’s easy to see why it has turned in to a success story. It has also turned in to a tourist attraction due to the phenomenal popularity of the Harry Potter novels and films. Part of the station’s redevelopment saw the addition of the famous luggage trolley on the fictitious platform 9 ¾. This is now a popular photo stop for commuters and tourists.
Its central location makes King’s Cross ideal to access areas right across London and the UK. European destinations are just a few hours away via the upgraded St Pancras International station and London City Airport can be reached via the Northern line and DLR.
With three mainline train stations in the area it’s easy to see why King’s Cross has grown so quickly as the newest business quarter in London, with fast access from the Home Counties and the Midlands.
