A Quick Walk around Busy King’s Cross, WC1
King’s Cross is one of the inner city areas situated north of Charing Cross, within the WC1 postcode area. This is where the busy King’s Cross railway station is located at, and the area that gave name to it. The area has parts in both the London Borough of Camden and the London Borough of Islington.
Historically, the area was known as the village of Battle Bridge, established as a crossing over the Fleet River. The present name comes from a King George IV monument that stood in the period 1830 - 1845. It stood on the Gray’s Inn Road, New Road and Pentonville Road crossroad.
King’s Cross railway station, located on the junction where the monument of King George IV used to stand, opened in 1852. The location of the station marks the edge of central London. This is the terminus for the East Coast Main Line. One of the main inter-city operators of the area feature Virgin Trains East, Grand Central and Hull Trains. Many bus services also serve the station, passing either at the side or the front of it.
Another railway station in the area is St Pancras. It was built and developed by Midland Railway. Along with King’s Cross, it had a significant contribution to the economy of the capital, as both are considered important in terms of goods traffic.
