Discover London
Victoria Hall King’s Cross is located in one of the most Instagram-worthy areas of central London – from the water fountains in Granary Square to Harry Potter’s Platform 9¾ – this is a great spot for the snap happy. King’s Cross and St Pancras International stations were both modernised in recent years and this has sparked the exciting regeneration of one of the city’s most well-connected postcodes.

New restaurants, street food stalls, independent shops, galleries, venues and public spaces are opening here all the time, adding to an area that already boasted some of the city’s coolest hangouts.

With so much to discover, we asked a few students to recommend their new favourite local haunts.
