Kings Cross area guide

Most notably known for its extensive train station links throughout London and other parts of the country, Kings Cross has undergone a host of developments in recent years to regenerate the area. In just under 6 years, Kings Cross had been transformed from a neglected blank canvas into a mini hub of business opportunities, which has seen companies like Google and Facebook opening their HQ in the now vibrant Kings Cross.
