In The Independent there is an article on the area between Grays Inn Road and King’s Cross Road, brought on by the plans to redevelop the site of the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital on Grays Inn Road, and also Belgrove House (across the road from King’s Cross Station).
This area has, until now, been a lot less affected by the redevelopment and gentrification that has happened in the rest of King’s Cross and Farringdon. The area’s quiet streets are well worth a stroll around.
HS2 protestors are being evicted from Euston Square Gardens. They have set up a camp, fixed themselves into the trees, and dug a tunnel, to try to stop HS2 from cutting down all the trees in Euston Square Gardens.
Some plans indicate that the Square might become a taxi rank.
