Granary Square is a large open space in the London Borough of Camden. Comparable in size to Trafalgar Square, it is part of the larger King's Cross Central development. It has been cited as an example of a privately owned public space in London. The new Central Saint Martins complex is adjacent.The square incorporates a fountain consisting of 1,080 individual jets rising from the flush paved surface of the plaza. 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.

  • The granary square is located about 200 meters North of the railway station King's cross. The course amazingly large and relatively unadorned designed. The surrounding buildings are also limited as a tourist attraction. The views of the Canal that runs past the place is nice. What makes the place and differs from others is a large fountain that consists of 1080 small fountains. In the summer it's happening determined correctly. In the evening there will be also a little light show, we were there but during the day. Bottom line: A little more attractive place, a cool fountain. We would look over perhaps once again on a nice summer day.

  • A parenthesis in the city: on two not the seething King Cross station a nice pedestrian walkway leading up to this place. At its end you can take you to Vanessa Paradis in Chanel advertising thanks to a swing in a giant cage! Shops will surely emerge along this alley, there was at least August than the Nike Store. At the end of this aisle you switch a channel, on your left of the bleachers filled with fake lawn you are waiting for a break in the face of the channel, and in front of you an esplanade with multicolored fountains at night. We landed on a bench and we took...

  • A very relaxing place at King's Boulevard, on the banks of Regal's Canal, adjacent to Central Saint Martins, a world-famous art school. If you know the story of its transformation from the Good Yard C...  read more »
  • In the summer months, this is a really great little square. A couple of fantastic restaurants nearby, a stone's through from the Kerb food market, there are great fountains that kids seem to love, you're near canals and green spaces and there is seating available in a mini orchard of sorts. When the sun is out, it's lovely. When it's not, it does feel a little cold and soulless.
  • I love this square - it's a great example of modern urban development done well. There are always kids playing in the fountains, and frequent events and festivals. Restaurants are mostly chains, but Grain Store and Caravan provide excellent options.
  • Lovely place to sit and enjoy the summer. Have been to a few events they have held in the square and there is always a great atmosphere and good food available.
  • It is amazing how King's Cross has changed. Once I queued up here to go to Bagleys. Now its a phenomenal water sculpture, surrounded by great restaurants and St. Martin's College.
  • One of the best bits of London redevelopment - a thriving area with lovely restaurants and a lot of open air events
