Kings Cross

From seedy to spiffy, this train-station neighborhood is steadily gaining steam.

Although King’s Cross garnered less than glowing reviews in the past, it’s steadily shedding its seedy reputation and becoming a burgeoning artist enclave. Affordable (for London) rents and a central city location increasingly attract investment in King’s Cross—its array of dining options and theatre spaces continues to grow. If performances don’t pique your interest, consider the neighborhood’s literary appeal—Harry Potter boarded his Hogwart’s bound train from platform 9 ¾ in King’s Cross station.

There are lots of shops in St Pancras Station and the best grocery store nearby is Waitrose in the Brunswick Centre. There is more public transport within 100m than almost anywhere else on the planet (buses, metro, rail)."
