Keep fit walking around Kings Cross
Probably best known for its famous railway station, Kings Cross is a busy area of London for both tourists and workers commuting into work each day. The area boasts a nice mix of fresh food markets, cafes and restaurants with peaceful open green spaces and plenty of culture on the doorstep with major museums and art galleries as well as the famous British Library.
In this episode we start our walking tour at the majestic St Pancras Renaissance Hotel entrance, before making our way along Euston Road to the entrance of St Pancras Station.
St Pancras Station connects to King’s Cross Station which houses the famous, if you’re a Harry Potter fan, Platform 9 ¾ where Harry Potter catches the train to Hogwarts.
From Kings Cross Station you will catch a glimpse of the striking Lighthouse Building on Grays Inn Road. This is an iconic period building with a lighthouse on its roof. This brand-new King’s Cross office space features premium Serviced Office space, meeting rooms, coworking across four floors, a bar and an outdoor decked area.

We then make our way up York Way and behind Kings Cross Station. The area behind Kings Cross Station has been massively redeveloped in recent years. The area is an eclectic mix of old world and new world, so it’s an exciting place to explore by foot.
We walk up to Regents Canal, which is a 9 mile waterway, that runs from the River Thames at Limehouse, right through to Paddington. We continue along the canal towpath past Granary Square, with its fun water fountains; the very trendy Coal Drops Yard, with its Alfresco restaurants and retail shopping; and Gasholder Park which is circular park encased in a cast iron frame, which once held 1.1 million cubic feet of gas.
We then cross the canal again and make our way past Google’s HQ building in Pancras Square, which was the first Google building outside of the USA, and back to St. Pancras International Rail station.
Kings Cross is bordered by Euston Road to the South, Midland Road to the West, Chill Lane to the North and York Way to the East.
