What you’ll do

Snuggly nestled within Central London lies the iconic King's Cross, a hive of activity that will captivate and draw you in with its charismatic energy as you delve into its underbelly with one of our hosts. Allow us to paint you a picture- zig-zagging streets punctuated with parks, historic squares, artsy galleries, trendy cafes and quaint restaurants. This is what you will discover on your totally customized experience that will take you to the heart of King's Cross. Step into a different world as you uncover the charming waterway of Regent’s canal, where you will find colorful boat moorings, heritage buildings and connections to nature. Grab a bite to eat at an artisanal food, drink and makers market then follow your host to Skip Garden - a hidden green oasis and sustainable garden where you can just zen out. Or you could just head on over to the urban nature haven that is Camley Street Natural Park, home to a plethora of birds, butterflies, wetlands and meadows. We can try set the scene with words but King's Cross really is just one of those places that must be experienced, and your host will know how!
