King's Cross is casting off unhappy demons to emerge as one of central London's most vital and exciting areas. In Dickens' day, it was filled with poverty-ridden slums. In the early 1900s, it was industrial and busy but no less poor, and then its industry, unfortunately, spiralled into decline. By the 1980s, the name of King's Cross - an important tube and railway hub - was synonymous with prostitution, drugs and crime, although its residents upheld their traditional, friendly community spirit. Today, it's being extensively regenerated in tandem with the launch of St Pancras as London's grand Channel Tunnel Rail Link terminus in November 2007. Shiny new bars, restaurants and hotels have replaced the seedy pubs and dives of yesteryear, and thriving attractions such as the Gagosian art gallery, the Shaw Theatre and the red-brick British Library will be joined eventually by classical-music venues and national newspaper offices. The past is nevertheless celebrated in the magnificent Victorian gothic facade of St Pancras and in the London Canal Museum, which somehow links the story of ice cream to a network of waterways, primarily the local Regent's Canal. King's Cross also contains a lovely wildlife reserve at the Camley Street Natural Park.
