In the new issue – the first we’ve handed out across five stations in and around King’s Cross and Euston – we’re scratching just beneath the surface of the shiny new King’s Cross, to discover that the neighbourhood’s tradition of skilled craftsmanship still survives, and in fact thrives, today.
We speak to Tom Broughton, the man behind Cubitts eyewear, who we find hand-making stylish specs from cramped arches behind St Pancras station. We also pay a visit to Bloomsbury’s Cockpit Arts and chat to the duo behind Carréducker, who specialise in bespoke shoes, produced to order using time-honoured techniques.
As usual we reveal the best new places to eat and drink, including Coba on York Way, as well as other quirky things worth discovering this month, including the new art gallery that’s fittingly taken over legendary Cally Road delicatessen K C Continental.
