Additional information

The number of so-called “Up and coming” areas in London is multiplying by the minute, but there is one area that definitely carries this name for good reasons: the King’s Cross area in Central London.

The recent regeneration, focused around the renovated, magnificent St Pancras train station, itself a listed building, has brought in everything that the modern Londoner could be looking for: offices (including Google who has set up their latest office there), trendy restaurants (including Dishoom, with an average one-hour queue), a Waitrose supermarket, bars and cafes. Students of the St Martin’s Art School bring in their fresh and dynamic vibe. Granary Square, located north form the station, has become a centre point for visitors, foodies and office workers alike. Don’t forget to discover the beautiful Renaissance hotel, with its Gothic architecture, and fully refurbished. Lastly, walking alongside Regent’s Canal is a welcome distraction in the middle of the city.

In addition to the on-site offer, let’s not forget that the transport connections are extraordinary. 6 underground lines, train lines to the North of the country, including to Gatwick and Luton airports, as well as the Eurostar to Paris and Northern Europe. A favourite amongst our French and Parisian clients, for very good reasons.
