Back in yesteryear, King’s Cross was merely a transport hub where people scurried past each other to catch trains to their next destination.
Jump forward to today, and it has become a unique community of locals and tourists.
So, if you’re looking for some social distancing activities and don’t know where to turn, look no further than this London hotspot.
Just a stone’s throw from the station, you will find markets, alfresco dining, street artists, live music, fitness activities, and even space for the kids to play.
The food options are aplenty, with the choice to eat inside or out. You can also grab a takeaway to picnic by the canal and watch the world go by.
Adding colour to the grass seating is the Lollypop Lounge, a fabulously decadent art installation of oversized ice-lollies that appears to be melting onto the ground.
If looking at sweet treats isn’t enough, you can indulge in one too at Ruby Violet.
Their range of frozen delights is just up the road at Tufnell Park, offering a delectable range of flavours and organic products.
For fitness junkies, there are outdoor workouts from The Fore and FRAME studios, both promising to energise with high-intensity classes that focus on movement and breathing.
To keep the kids active too, a summer holiday camp offering a multitude of sports and activities – including football, dodgeball, as well as arts, crafts and drama – is available thanks to the King’s Cross Academy joining forces with Bloomsbury Football.
There is also the Handyside playground for the little ones, with swings and slides galore.
If you’d prefer to hang out as a family together, then check out Battle Bridge Busk which involves street musicians performances every Tuesday afternoon from 4.30pm-7pm.
You can also jump into the virtual pools at Granary Square and play the giant word search game or try the 2D maze.
Of course, there is always the iconic Regent’s Canal to explore too; an 8.5mile stretch of water where you’re guaranteed to spy colourful boat float by.
