Kings Cross – A Walk on the Wild Side

Best Pubs in Kings Cross

An old blacksmiths shop, now a nice pub.

Kings Cross has a reputation for being the “most” seedy part of London and famous for the opportunity of “a good time”.  Hookers and prostitutes roamed the area and this was not a place you would go some 20 years ago.

Cleaned up a little and perhaps a bit more respectable, this walk takes you to a converted blacksmiths, a very traditional London pub and a gastro-pub delight.

On this walk you will pass the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, whose motto is ‘Audient surdi mutique loquentur’ – the deaf shall hear and the mute shall speak. Inspirational stuff we reckon!

This walk is 1.7km and should take you less than 2 hours to complete, although you may want to eat at our last “gastro” pub. Particularly as a couple of rather mature locals referred to it as “our dining room”.  We don’t think we have had such a good recommendation!
