King's Cross Journeys is a fun way of bringing history to life and I hope it will enable visitors to have a great time while they experience a little bit of the fascinating past of the places where we live, work and play.
The heritage of King's Cross is captivating and we have worked hard to put it at the centre of the transformation of the area, something that I hope this event will help people to realise.

The major programme to upgrade and restore the station is near complete and taking a moment to look back at the spirit of the age that created it seems a great way to celebrate and to show off the achievements being made by our business partners in the area to bring this once neglected area of the City back to life with a vengeance.
