  • 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.
