Working in Kings Cross
We are pleased to bring you our first LentaSpace Location Guide, designed to give you a feel for what it’s like working in Kings Cross. We have included everything essential – how long it will take you to travel to work, where to stop for coffee en route, where to go for the best street food at lunch, where to buy that last minute birthday present and of course where to gather with your work mates for post work drinks.
Transport links are amazing in the Kings Cross area with the three mainline stations, St. Pancras, Euston and Kings Cross enabling you to commute direct from Peterborough, Cambridge, Milton Keynes or Rugby.
The Stations are also well serviced by Transport for London – you can arrive by tube via both branches of the Northern line plus Victoria, Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines
Bus routes serving Kings Cross include the 10 and the 39 which terminate here and the 73 and 390.
Coal Drops Yard is a real find around the back of Kings Cross Station and across the Regents Canal, with its cobbled streets and brick arches full of character. It houses a great choice of independent stores and exclusive brands, from Lavenham, an outdoor wear retailer from Suffolk to Aesop the skin, hair and body care brand from Australia.
Support local independent businesses by visiting the local outdoor covered Canopy Market at West Handyside Canopy on Fridays for fresh produce, street food, artisanal crafts and music.
Take your coffee from Redemption Roasters in Lower Stable Street and you will be helping offenders find a new path, as their coffee is made in UK prisons and their aim to is reduce reoffending by upskilling to improve job prospects.
Places for lunch
The stations themselves provide all of the usual options you’d expect for a quick or takeaway lunch, such as Leon, Benugo, Pret a Manger and Starbucks.
If you want something a little different try Sons and Daughters in Coal Drops Yard for your sandwich of dreams, with good vegetarian options and layers of flavour.
Post work drinks
If wine bars are your thing, we would like to recommend The Drop, in Coal Drops Yard, who take their wine seriously and seek out something different from vineyards globally and have created a very cool vibe with their stripped back brick interiors.
We’re also going to give you some local insider knowledge by sharing our favourite spot for cocktails, the very well hidden away Supermax, on Handy Street, downstairs from Happy Face (pizza). Serious cocktails and even more serious music, Friday and Saturday nights.
We hope that this has given you some great ideas but do visit the great local knowledge website https://www.kingscross.co.uk/ for more suggestions.
