The Kings Cross area seems to really have come alive. From having been a seedy ‘no-go’ part of London it is now an interesting mix of restored Victorian Gasholders and modern buildings, many with big roof gardens. The Coal Drops Yard was designed by Thomas Heatherwick and consists of two converted 19C coal warehouses that touch each other – and hence the nickname ‘The Kiss’. A former granary has become the home of the prestigious Central St Martin’s School of Art and Design. There are canals and new gardens. Definitely a new place worth a visit.
