Green parks and spaces are plentiful in London. But you can never have enough green space; the Lewis Cubit Square and Park in King’s cross is a newly developed space that’s been designed to make King’s cross compete with other notable areas in London in terms of green spaces.
The park has been named after Lewis Cubitt, the man who designed the railway station, grain stores, and great northern hotel – but the park was actually designed by the same architects who brought the Winter Sun in Granary square. Meanwhile, the major Lewis Cubitt civic square is the work of celebrated designer Laure Olin – who designed Bryant Park in New York.
If it isn’t clear how much was invested in this project from a design point of view, then consider this: it will feature arching water jets, a busy programme of markets, and an outdoor cinema. Besides that, it features lovely moulded lawns, a fantastic variety of trees, and bushes and plenty of space for families who are looking to enjoy a sunny day out in the park picnicking.
So, if you’re undecided about where to book your accommodation this season, consider Kings cross. The Montcalm at the brewery London city hotel can be found in the area, one of the best 5-star central London hotels that can be found in the capital.
Now, we’re not saying you’ll need to stay in Kings cross just based on the newly built Lewis Cubitt Square and Park. Kings cross has a lot to offer beyond that. For instance, consider the Canal Museum, the Shaw and Bloomsbury theatres, Camley Street Natural Park, and the Gasogian gallery. In short, this is a place that’s full of culture in the form of art, music, and cultural events. Especially considering that the famous British library is located right next to St Pancras station, which isn’t very far off Kings Cross.
While staying close to central London does have its benefits, Kings Cross is still centrally located, and is a major transport hub. Numerous trains (Eurostar) connect travellers to destinations such as Lille, Rome, Brussels, Amsterdam, and Bruges. So whether you’re someone who’s planning on travelling to several destinations across Europe, or want the cultural landscape of London city, we highly recommend Kings cross St Pancras as the ideal location for your stay in the city. And for any fan of Harry potter, or traveller arriving to London with a young family, the famous platform 9 and ¾ can be found right at Kings cross – think of it as an extra benefit to staying in Kings cross.
