Kings Cross Hotels - London

Mini guide to Kings Cross

     

Euston and Kings Cross station make up a major transport interchange in the north London area. In fact, anyone who is a Harry Potter fan knows that the Hogwart's Express departs from Kings Cross station (although the location used in the film is actually Marylebone station). There is a sign on a wall of the secondary building housing platforms 9-11 that states 'Platform 9 3/4'.

The British Library is located between the two stations and houses some of the world's most famous written and printed documents, including the Magna Carta, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Codex Sinaiticus. Special exhibitions are also on display.

Walking distance from Kings Cross is St Pancras New Church, designed along Athenian architectural lines and built in 1822. The well-preserved late Georgian interior and fascia are beautiful and well worth a visit.

The London Canal Museum depicts the history of London's canals and waterways and is a fun way to learn about this unusual side of London. Also nearby is the Wellcome Trust, one of the world's richest charities. Apart from their financial contributions to medical research, they also host a library and exhibitions, which are open to the public.

Kings Cross area has a dodgy reputation, but a few blocks away are the quiet up-market areas of Regents Square, Argyle Square and Cartwright Gardens, which all have clusters of good hotels.

Very conveniently located, Kings Cross station services the northeast, including Cambridge, York, Durham and Edinburgh. Euston station, which is only a few minutes walk away, services the Westcoast Mainline, with trains to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. This is a perfect location for those wishing to explore other areas of the UK. Euston and Kings Cross are also major interchanges for the tube with the Piccadilly, Northern, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, and Circle lines converging here.
