King’s Cross
A short-lived and reputedly ugly monument to King George IV, erected in 1835 led to a name switch from Battle Bridge to King’s Cross.  Now it is poised for a new lease of life as a result of huge investment in King’s Cross station’s redevelopment.  The area has many surprising nooks and crannies, like the quaint Dickensian Woburn Walk.  Around the corner is the eye-catching Greek revival architecture of St. Pancras New Church with its elegant caryatids.  And further south is the children’s park and animal enclosure, Coram’s Fields, named after philanthropist Thomas Coram who established Britain’s first children’s home.
