Kings Cross sits to the north of Bloomsbury in the London Borough of Camden and is both a major international transport hub – also incorporating St Pancras and Euston stations – and the site of one of Europe’s largest urban regeneration schemes set in 26 acres of parks, squares and open spaces. High speed Eurostar connections run direct from here to Paris, Lille, Amsterdam, Brussels and beyond, and it is now home to a host of international occupiers, including Google, Universal Music & Louis Vuitton.
