Each jet has its own independently-controlled pump and multi-color illumination. As of March 2015, visitors to the square can interact with the fountains to play a mobile version of the Snake game.Other squares in the development will include Station Square, Pancras Square, Cubitt Square, and North Square.

  • Really pleasant place to hang out in summer. Nice restaurants, great bars, outdoor seating & the canal all a stone's throw from Kings Cross. Nice spot to kill some time.
  • Great space for all. Water playground for kids of all ages. Good shops. Ping Pong tables available to satisfy any sudden pong urges. The House of Illisration is what attracted me to this place.
  • Lovely environment and amazing to see how it's changed over the years. On a sunny summers day it becomes a magnet for young children with the water fountains and is a great place for an outdoor drink.
  • Great after work spot. Great bars and restaurants and loads of open space that people hang out in. It felt like a Barcelona town square when the sun was shining!
  • Great places to eat, to sit and watch the fountains, they are gorgeous at night, all lit up. Or walk along the canal to Camden lock from here.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
