What you can expect

Ever wondered what life is like for locals in London's bustling King's Cross and the Regent's Canal area? Everyone knows in passing of the railway station complex and the beautiful nearby Regent's Canal - but now you can get a taste of this bohemian neighbourhood with a true local.
You will discover how London's King's Cross got it's name with your private host. Exploring Caledonian Road, you will pass well known and secret night spots. Discover a club in a converted theatre, another in a former Victorian bath house.
Take a relaxing stroll along the Regent's Canal and wander around the new Coal Drops retail area and the University of The Arts, Central St Martins, London's most fashionable University campus. Look in to the audiophile bar where you can hear some top-quality music in a relaxing lounge, only steps away from the new creative business area where Google, Facebook and Youtube are based.
End your tour at St Pancras and King's Cross Station where you can enjoy a cold beer or hot drink at a bar with a view of trains arriving from Europe.
This tour can be 100% customized to your wishes. Just let me know!
