King’s Cross Area Guide


King’s Cross has come a long way in recent years. Regenerated from an area without much except a train station, it is now a destination in its own right. Are you looking to have an office space in King’s Cross? Read on to find out more about this thriving area and why it is such an excellent choice.

What it’s like to work in King’s Cross

Truly central, King’s Cross is a thriving hub. You may encounter more than your fair share of tourists, but walk a little further and you can see the artsy, offbeat heart of the area.

The benefits of working there

King’s Cross is incredibly well connected. Whether you are travelling from further afield or based in London itself, you can, of course, get there by the Underground, but St Pancras train station connects you to all over the country. You’re just a stone’s throw from Euston, and can even get to Paris for a quick weekend getaway right from work. This also means it’s easy to go further afield on your lunch breaks, should you want to. But there is so much to see and do in King’s Cross itself, you may not want to!

The best places to eat and drink

Make sure to check out the newly improved Coal Drops Yard, a hot spot with something for everyone right on the canal. Nestled between King’s Cross and St Pancras stations, it is uniquely located with a range of delicious eateries.

If you are looking for a different sort of vibe for after-work drinks, The Driver is an excellent gastropub with a roof terrace perfect for summer socials. However, if you want to hang out somewhere more homey come the winter, King Charles I is a classic pub, complete with a roaring fire and range of rare ales to wet your whistle while you chat to your colleagues.


There is a huge amount of culture located right in the heart of King’s Cross. Visit the British Library for a relaxing browse or to view an exhibition. Or visit the fascinating London Canal Museum with your team. You can soak up some atmosphere while working in one of the coolest places in town – there is even thriving nightlife with spots like the Scala right on your doorstep. Whether you are looking for laid back burritos or something a little more upscale, it’s a fun spot for team lunches.
