Kings Cross is well known for being a major transport hub.
Kings Cross formerly had a reputation for being a red light district and seedy. However, rapid regeneration since the mid-1990s has rendered this reputation largely out-of-date.
The area has been the terminus of the Eurostar rail service at St Pancras International, with services to France and Belgium since 2007. Regeneration continues within King’s Cross Central, a major redevelopment in the north of the area.
Many more hotels, restaurants, and cultural venues have made the area a truly eclectic mixed use destination.
