After World War II, the area behind King’s Cross gradually declined as an important transportation hub. The area then suffered from noxious industries, derelict buildings and seedy nightclubs. The Eurostar development at nearby St. Pancras was the catalyst for change, attracting Facebook, Google and Amazon. Ian Swankie – again our expert Guide – will lead our Guided Walk around these new  developments, bringing together heritage buildings, modern architecture and St. Pancras Old Church.
