Granary SquareThe same size as Trafalgar Square, Granary Square is at the heart of King's Cross where the Eurostar departs and emerged as part of the 2012 regeneration of the railway station. With over 1,000 choreographed individually lit fountains in the middle, and historic buildings - including the Granary Square Brasserie - surrounding it, the canalside square is a natural meeting place. There's room for 2,000 people to sit on deckchairs and enjoy a concert or a summer movie, and the square has hosted musical festivals Traction and Africa Express, as well as The Big Dance and an ice cream festival. It occupies a spot where barges once unloaded their goods and there are wide, south-facing steps sweep down to the canal. Walk on past the steps and you'll be in Coal Drops Yard, a pedestrianised area full of Victorian brick arches and industrial ironwork, redesigned by Heatherwick Studio into a chi-chi shopping district with 50 stores, cafes and restaurants.
