1. Track down Platform 9 and 3/4

It’s just plain bad luck that you didn’t get your enrolment letter for Hogwarts but you can still recreate the magical moment of trying to slam a luggage trolley through the wall of platform 9 and 3/4 at Kings Cross St Pancras. Trolley supplied.
No idea what I’m talking about? Start here with the Harry Potter books. You’re welcome.
How to do it:
Wander around Kings Cross station long enough and you’ll find the platform.Be prepared to queue if you visit on a weekend.

2. Explore St Pancras Station inside and out

Highlights of Kings Cross St Pancras:

The Dent Clock – located on the upper floor, near the Eurostar, the Dent Clock is a replica completed within painstaking attention to detail after the original was dropped and shattering in a billion (guesstimate) pieces.

The statue of John Betjeman – also on the upper floor, Mr Betjeman is famous for saving the station from being knocked down in the 1960s.

The Meeting Place –  also known as the Lover’s statue, the original design had the lovers kissing but British prudishness prevailed and the lovers are more innocently knocking heads. You’ll find it under the Dent Clock.

The Olympic Rings – you can now park your bottom on the rings that hung in the station while London hosted the 2012 Olympics. They have been carved up and turned into seating outside the Southeastern high speed platforms.
Is Kings Cross and St Pancras the same station?
Strictly speaking, Kings Cross and St Pancras are two separate stations. However, they are right next to each other, separated by one road. Since recent renovations, they are commonly referred to as one station – Kings Cross St Pancras.

3. Have a glass of Champagne at Europe’s longest Champagne bar

Searcy’s Champagne bar, located on the upper floor of St Pancras Station, is in a perfect spot for some pre-Eurostar fizz. But that’s not its only attraction – it happens to be Europe’s longest Champagne bar, stretching 98 metres under the station’s sweeping glass roof.
How to do it:
Reservations aren’t required (why would they be – this is the longest Champagne bar in Europe) but you can book if you prefer.
The bar serves food and afternoon tea as well as Champagne and other tipples.
Tip: take a warm layer if you’re visiting in winter – all that glass makes for a chilling experience. The bar does provide blankets if you get cold but you may prefer your own items.

4. Visit the British Library

With over 150 million items and a collection that dates back 3,000 years, a visit to the British Library should definitely be on your list of things to do near Kings Cross St Pancras.
How to do it: 
The free and permanent exhibition: Treasures of the British Library is the best way to see the highlights of the library, including the Magna Carta, Jane Austin’s notebook and lyrics written by the Beatles.
Don’t miss: the statue of Sir Isaac Newton (pictured above) in the British Library Plaza.

5. Swing on an IFO

Wait? What? Let me explain: an art installation, IFO (Identified Flying Object) is a giant bird cage that’s lit up at night. Mainly it’s grounded but on occasions it’s hoisted into the air to decorate the night sky. There’s also a swing inside it – suitable for adults and kids. Tried and tested.

How to do it:
The IFO is a short walk from Kings Cross St Pancras station opposite the German Gymnasium . You can find out more here.

6. Take a heritage walk near Kings Cross St Pancras

Kings Cross has a thick history. It’s roots are in industry thanks to the railroads, but the two World Wars hit the area hard. As freight fell into decline, so did the surrounding neighbourhood. By the 1980’s, Kings Cross was so steeped in iniquity it had become one of the city’s red light districts.
The German Gymnasium – built in 1864 for the German Gymnastics society, this was the first purpose-built gym in the UK., the gym is now a restaurant and bar.
Gasholder No. 8 – one of the original gasholders from the station’s industrial days, it’s now a park because, what else do you do with an empty gasholder?
The Granary – the previous function of this building is self-evident. Today it’s home to the world famous Central Saint Martins art college. Have a peak inside to see how vast the granary once was.
How to do it:
You can take a free self-guided walking tour using this downloadable guide (smartphone version also available).
If you prefer to take a tour with someone who is bursting with local knowledge, check out Isabelle Seddon of Unique London Tours.

7. Enjoy some green space

As with most major cities, green space is something you need to search out rather than stumble upon but there are a couple of options to put on your list of things to do near Kings Cross St Pancras if you do want some greenery.
Gasholder No. 8 – as mentioned above, this former gasholder is now a park.
Camely Street nature park – a wildlife reserve created from wasteland, Camley Street nature park is a mix of woodland, grassland and wetland by Regent’s Canal. Look out for birds, butterflies and amphibians.
Skip Garden – an urban garden with flowers, veg and herbs, Skip Garden is a community effort that has been built from recycled materials. There’s a restaurant attached where you can taste the home-grown produce.

8. Dance in the dancing fountains at Granary Square

If you wait for a warm sunny day to stand amongst the dancing water fountains in Granary Square, you might be waiting a while but you can always dip a toe…or just take a picture, shoes still firmly on.
The Granary Square fountains are accessible all day, all year. Brave enough to go in? Your reward – the Granary Squirt App – control the fountains yourself and chase a snake of colour across the water sprays.

9. Eat, drink and shop at Coal Drops Yard

Coal Drops Yard is one of the latest additions to the redevelopment around Kings Cross . Small but perfectly formed, if you have some time to kill between trains or just have a few hours to spare in London, Coal Drops Yard is a perfect thing to do near Kings Cross. Under 10 minutes by foot from the train station, you’ll find a small collection of shops, cafes, bars and eateries and, if nothing else, it’s a great place for a wander.

10. Graze your way through Canopy Market

I probably should put this before Coal Drops Yard because if you turn up on a dry day when Canopy Market is on, you’d be better having a wander around the street food stalls than eat at one of the restaurants (subjective opinion from a street food fan). Canopy Market is everything about a street food and craft market that’s done well. It’s nicely spread out, there is adequate seating and a good selection of food, drinks and crafts are on offer. One of the things is the ability to grab a casual bite and glass of vino outdoors without spending a fortune on restaurant al fresco dining. 
I can highly recommend the Toulouse sausages from the Flying Frenchman and Amala Chai served up some of the best chai I’ve had outside India. Given it’s London, you can also expect London gin, craft beers, wine and a Prosecco bar. 
Interested in Prosecco? I have another website all about how to go tasting in The Prosecco region of Italy, just an hour outside Venice.

11. Stop for ice cream at Ruby Violet

Small batch, organic and free-range, this high-end ice-cream parlour will leave you stuck for choice.
How to do it:
You can find Ruby Violet on the map

12. Take a walk along Regent’s Canal

Now that you’ve got your ice cream in hand, and your umbrella in the other (probably, even in July – this is London), how about a stroll along Regent’s Canal? Narrowboats are not what immediately come to mind when you think of England’s capital but the canal has earned itself the title ‘Little Venice’.
How to do it:
The canal length is 8.5 miles (about 13.5 kilometres) from Paddington to Limehouse. Here is a route for walking a popular part of the canal from Camden to Limehouse. Dip out any time you like and catch the Tube back.

13. Take a boat ride along the canal

For just £10, you can take a leisurely pootle up Regent’s Canal in a narrow boat. Perfect if you can’t be @rsed to walk or if the British weather isn’t on your side. Also, if you’ve never been on a narrow boat, you really should tick that off your bucket list.Trips take 1 hour one-way and just over 2 hours for a return trip. They only go a couple of times a day so time it right if you really want to add this to your list. 

14. Get crafty at Drink, Shop & Do

Apart from the delicious food, Drink, Shop & Do is much more than a place to fill your face. With a regular list of events that range from inappropriate Christmas card making to calligraphy and knitting workshops, Drink, Shop & Do is a great place if you’re looking for alternative or crafty things to do near Kings Cross St Pancras.

15. Visit the Charles Dickens Museum

Stroll down Doughty Street and it’s very easy to imagine Charles Dickens ensconced inside number 48 working on what will become a future classic. His Victorian home where he wrote Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby has been beautifully restored. You can wander through his study and see where he slept and dined. Don’t miss the washer house copper that later featured in A Christmas Carol (Mrs Cratchett steamed her Christmas pudding in it).
How to do it:
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday (closed Monday). The admission fee is £9.

16. Explore the Welcome Collection

In short it explores health, life and art. There was a fascinating exhibition on forensic investigations when I popped in.
How to do it:
The galleries are open Tuesday to Sunday, closed Mondays. Admission is free. Find out what’s on with the Wellcome Collection website.

17. Refresh on the rooftop of Big Chill House

Feel like you’ve been doing a lot of wandering around? A bit parched? Grab a seat and beverage on the rooftop of Big Chill House.
How to do it:
Food is available as well as drinks. And, don’t worry, the rooftop is covered in case London decides to rain.

18. Hone your skills at the Waitrose Cookery School

the supermarket and cooking school occupies the old produce store and market that used to take the overspill goods from Billingsgate market.
How to do it:
Classes range from a couple of hours to a whole day. ?

19. Play video games downstairs at Simmons bar

Pop into Simmons Bar in Kings Cross and it seems like any other bar, until you head downstairs. With a retro, non-flat screen tv and a Sega Megadrive, this equipment could be in a museum. But it’s not – it’s out for customers to play to their heart’s content.

20. Grab dinner at Dishoom

However, if this small, independent chain offers in Kings Cross what it has out east, I’d recommend it in the blink of any eye. Replicating an old Irani cafe from Bombay, this is nothing like your typical British ‘curry house’. Expect small sharing dishes packed with Indian flavours.
The problem with Dishoom is that you can’t book unless you’re a large group. There is a bar where you can wait but arrive on a Saturday night at 8pm and not only will you have to queue to get into the bar, the queue may be so long that you may never get to the front before the restaurant closes. Best bet – go early (before 6:30pm), visit mid-week and expect a wait.

21. Learn some wicked dance moves

Drink, Shop & Do is so full of fun activities, it gets a second mention on this list. And, I think you’ll agree that any place that will teach you how to shake your booty, deserves it.

How to do it:
There’s an ever changing list of dance classes on at Drink, Shop & Do.

22. Sleep in a prison cell at Clink 78

Fun fact: Clink 78 was once a courthouse and the courtroom has been refurbished into a common room – why not grab a coffee and relax in the judge’s chair?
How to do it:
Clink offers a range of rooms including dorms and private rooms. However, I recommend one of the prison cells. The rooms are English Heritage listed with the original prison/police custody features. Rooms start from £65 per cell per night. Booking ahead because the cells are popular. 

23. Take the Eurostar

There are plenty of things to do near Kings Cross St Pancras but it’s also an airport-free way to get off the British Isles and onto the continent of Europe. The Eurostar is one of my favourite ways to travel and I find it’s often quicker and cheaper than taking a flight. Plus: packing a Eurostar Champagne picnic makes you feel like you’re travelling first class no matter which seat you’re in. You won’t get that on
1. Track down Platform 9 and 3/4
