Places To Eat Near King’s Cross Station

Originally just a busy rail hub, this north London neighbourhood is a destination in its own right, all focused around the beautifully redeveloped former train goods yards which sit alongside the Regent’s Canal. Not only is the area well served by fashion store branches, but also features independent retailers and charity shops, along with some even on the water itself. If you can drag yourself away from the shops, you’ll be full to bursting with the number of restaurants and food markets on offer. For a taste of culture, there are several established museums and some newer entrants to visit. You won’t have to go far for an evening out, with music venues, but large and small, all nearby, catering for a variety of different tastes.

So whether you’re waiting for a train, staying near King’s Cross or just passing through, here’s what you can get up to and where you can grab a bite to eat.

Last year, I explained this was born out of a family tradition where we’d shower to wash off the bad year, get together around the toasty hearth, write the things we wanted to leave behind on pieces of paper, and then, to top it all off, burn them in the fire.

These are the 11 physical things and bad habits that I’m leaving behind in 2021.
