The public squares and gardens at King’s Cross come in all shapes and sizes, from gardens and fountain-filled squares to nature reserves and parks. Sitting alongside Fenman House, the lawns of Lewis Cubitt Park are the ideal place to relax and enjoy some of the King’s Cross temporary art installations. Nearby you will find Lewis Cubitt Square, designed by Bryant Park’s Laurie Olin and featuring his signature arching water jets – the perfect place for watching the world go by.
To the south of Fenman House you’ll discover Jellicoe Gardens, arguably King’s Cross’ most tranquil spot, where you’ll find peace amongst some of the country’s most beautiful plants. Follow the canal and discover Handyside Gardens, a natural play park inspired by the old railway sidings, while just around the corner you’ll find the popular Granary Square, with terraced seating down to the canal and pop-up events all summer long. A short walk from Fenman House and you can also be in more traditional surrounds, with the London Wildlife Trust’s Camley Street Natural Park providing a two acre haven on the banks of Regent’s Canal.
