  • 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...

  • Excellent place to hang out, eat, drink or just chill. Very laid back vibe due to the University being there and the surroundings are a great mix of Victorian Industrial era fused with the modern. Kings Cross is a stones throw away and during the summer a walk along the adjacent canal is a must.
  • Very beautiful place, always hosting events every other weekend and it brings out its beauty at nights with a pretty display of colorful lights in it's fountains and it is really culturally immersive when they hold their diverse and accommodating events - every independent seller has the opportunity to show their wares here and this is what makes this place so pleasantly unique - it is also a 5 minute walk from Kings Cross St Pancras station
  • A nice place to relax and have a coffee or a bite to eat. Bring the kids, they will enjoy the fountains... You can even enjoy a leisurely walk along the canal.
  • Nice summer hangout place. Canal, Steps with fake green and some food/drink places, and its central. It's right next to kings cross so getting there is super easy. Definitely recommend.
  • Beautiful and friendly place with different events every weekend. There are many places to drink or eat and is great for families and friends.
