Kings Cross Walk Reviews
" Terrific. Really enjoyed it - and perfectly pitched as those of us who are local with some knowledge of London, who can still learn. Ian was really knowledgeable with the right mix of gravitas and serious history, with a bit of humour and fluff (Harry Potter!). Would be nice to have a bit of biographical info about Ian at the start - what is his expertise, credentials, etc. Just briefly! But it was great. Will attend again." Nicole Newman Nov-2019
"We tend to think of Euston and Kings Cross as perhaps places we pass through to use the rail station, on occasion we have seen a show at the Shaw Theatre or an exhibit at the British Library. This walk/talk brought the area to life and told us about its fascinating history as a residential district and how modernisation has created attractive restaurants and places to visit. One of the good features of the walk is that we were given tips about excursions we could organise ourselves in the future, maybe a visit to a large and historic church crypt followed by a meal at a converted German gymnasium connected to the present day Olympics. Our guide managed admirably with a few enthusiastic football fans we met on our way and a sprinkling of rain too. Definitely recommended." Sarah and Tony Greaves Nov-2019
