Area Guide King's Cross
Once a red light district, this inner city area has been regenerated over the last two decades through major developments such as the opening of Eurostar and St. Pancras International.
Business professionals and travellers alike flock to Kingís Cross, thanks to its many transport links and its dynamic culture. The Guardian and The Observer have their offices here, along with big names like Google, Universal Music and Louis Vuitton. Although new developments have seen the area throw off its less-than-glamorous past, itís not all shiny glass and suits. The cobbled streets around Coal Drops Yard, plus many Victorian buildings, lend some historic charm to a post-meeting stroll.
Setting up your business here
Its superior travel links set Kingís Cross apart, with St Pancras International being a particular draw for those who travel to and from the continent. As for lunchtime or post-work venues, thereís plenty of variety to suit different tastes Ė itís hard to see how you wouldnít find an appealing bar or restaurant. The only drawback to having an office in Kingís Cross is the crowds- theyíre unavoidable in rush hour.
Culture and Entertainment
The world-famous British Library holds regular exhibitions inside its Grade I listed building - arguably worth a visit if only for the cafť surrounded by rare books.

The German Gymnasium Grand Cafť is located behind Kingís Cross station, and is an upmarket choice. Think white table cloths, marble floors and a menu of German-inspired cuisine. Caravan has a more laidback vibe, where a mix of students and young professionals sample an eclectic menu that caters to plenty of tastes. Or how about some afternoon tea?
