Xchange Point borders the area of King’s Cross which has seen Europe's biggest urban redevelopment in recent years. Here there is a large choice of museums, art galleries, music venues, street markets, restaurants and bars.
Within this bustling district there are plenty of relaxing green spaces, pedestrian squares and parks. Transport-wise it is a very well connected area, with Eurostar high speed trains providing the gateway to and from Europe. With these credentials is it any wonder Google, BNP Paribas and Central St Martin’s School of art have chosen to establish themselves in this area. Kings Cross is attracting both international business giants as well as young, creative commerce.
Easily accessible by bus from Xchange Point is Camden Lock, the lively, somewhat alternative, shopping area with open and covered markets of independent fashion shops and street food. In the other direction, but equally accessible, is vibrant Upper Street in Islington with its shopping street of designer and creative retailers, interspersed with cafes, bars, restaurants, pubs, theatres and cinemas.
North London is famed for its open and green spaces. Around the Kings Cross district 10 new parks and squares have been created in addition to the many incidental strips of green oases and nature reserves in the locality. Just down the road from Xchange Point is the Regent’s canal, a 9 mile waterway and towpath that runs from East London Limehouse, to West London Paddington. The large and ancient grassy areas of Hampstead Heath are under 20 minutes away as is celebrity-bound Primrose Hill close to Regent’s Park in the opposite direction.
