Exploring behind King's Cross

Twenty years ago, that'd be something both dodgy, and frankly not for public consumption.
But post regeneration it's a pleasure.  Good coffee to hand, good food (by the look if it).

If these projects keeps up, is there going to be a seamier side of London left?

This was the old Great North Railway goods yard a long time ago.  Now they are setting up for Strawberries and Screen - the Wimbledon large screen experience. Blimey!
