69 Colebrooke Row

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

Terroni of Clerkenwell

Terroni of Clerkenwell

Terroni's on Clerkenwell Road is a charming traditional Italian café and food store offering all the delights of the old country. There is nothing better than an afternoon cappuccino with a delicious pistachio cream filled cannoli!

Great for family or group dinners. Looks very classy and the food is delicious. Voucher deals are always available. If you think you can't afford the Hilton, think again!

"If you look carefully at the four handmaidens supporting the alcove at St Pancras Church, one can observe that they are strangely out of proportion. This is because they were delivered 12 inches too tall, and the stonemasons reduced their size by removing it from their midriff!"

Move over Shoreditch, King's Cross is rapidly becoming the place to be! Near the City and the West End, there's load of new bars...

King's Cross quote

Granary Square has made King's Cross unrecognisable!

King's Cross quote

Claire O'Donnell

Within touching distance of the West End, yet retaining a vibrant neighbourhood feel, Islington is a smart choice for buyers and tenants.

About King's Cross

King's Cross is an area of London partly in the London Borough of Camden and partly in the London Borough of Islington. It is an inner-city district located 2.5 miles (4.8 km) north of Charing Cross. The area formerly had a reputation being run-down, however, rapid regeneration since the mid 1990s has rendered this reputation largely out-of-date. Since November 2007 the area has been the terminus of the Eurostar rail service at St Pancras International, with services to France and Belgium. Regeneration continues under the auspices of King's Cross Central which is a major redevelopment in the north of the area. Many more hotels, restaurants, and cultural venues have made the area a cultural centre in the 2000s, and there is also substantial business activity and residential accommodation.
