The inner-city district of Kings Cross straddles the boroughs of Camden and Islington.
The site of an ancient village known as Battle Bridge, this area was originally settled as a crossing of the River Fleet. Lore speaks of a major battle occurring here between the Romans and the army of Queen Boadicea. However, no historical evidence of this battle exists and it is largely disputed by most historians. Legends about the bellicose and triumphant Boadicea being buried at King's Cross Station appear to be the stuff of urban legend as well. More recently, King' Cross has dealt for decades with a tarnished reputation as a derelict red light district. However, over the past decade or so, extensive revitalization in the area has really turned this bustling part of London around!
Key to the redevelopment of the Kings Cross district has been the opening of the international rail service at St Pancras International Station where, since November 2007, Eurostar trains crossing beneath the English Channel have provided regular and speedy service to France and Belgium (and from those two countries, stations throughout Europe).
Not simply a point of access between London and the Continent, St Pancras is a fantastic destination in its own right. The brand spanking new station features of a variety of well known shops, a fantastic pub, plenty of places to eat and even Europe's longest champagne bar! Plans for a daily fresh farmers' market are in the works as well!
Of course, St Pancras is not the only station in the area. Kings Cross Station is another major railway terminus. One of Britain's busiest stations, it has been in use since the 1850s.
For fans of the popular Harry Potter series, Kings Cross Station is the where the magical Platform 9+3/4 sees students board the train for Hogwarts. Indeed, the station now features signage for this platform, as well as a luggage trolley partially embedded into the wall.
Nearby Euston Station is another heavily used rail station here. The station functions as the main rail gateway from and from London to the West Midlands, the North West, North Wales and Scotland.
With so much new development, a rich and ancient history and its status as one of Europe's most important (if not the most important) travel hubs, Kings Cross offer accommodations for all tastes and budgets. From humble bed and breakfasts and backpacker hostels to the most lavish of luxury hotels, visitors will find a wealth of options and all mere steps away from the best London and, indeed, all of Europe have to offer!
King’s Cross Central is currently undergoing the biggest redevelopment in central London in the last 160 years. Many creative and cultural organisations are moving into the area. Kings Place, a new building on the Regents Canal, houses the first newly built concert hall in London since the Barbican opened in 1982, along with two art galleries.
