This month, King’s Cross celebrates the anniversaries of two very different landmark buildings. Saved from the wrecking ball during the demolition-happy 1960s, St Pancras has been reborn as one of the modern world’s great rail termini. It reaches the ripe old age of 150 this month, with a series of events looking at the rollercoaster ride of its fortunes across the decades.
Meanwhile, just up the towpath, October also sees groundbreaking mixed-use arts, dining and of?ce space Kings Place hit a decade. Inside our new edition, out today, we speak to its visionary founders, who back in the mid-noughties took a punt erecting a gleaming canalside structure in what were still very much London’s abandoned industrial wastelands.
Elsewhere, as well as previewing a raft of diverting new things to do in and around King’s Cross this autumn, we give you the lowdown on three top food spots in Soho, a guide to West Norwood in south-east London – and even take an autumnal hop over the Channel to the Belgian coast.
