Coal Drops Yard – the new shopping street at the heart of King’s Cross.

With its canalside location, Victorian architecture and beautiful new public squares as a backdrop, Coal Drops Yard is set to become a unique new shopping destination for London.

The cobbled streets and Victorian brick arches will house an eclectic and original mix of shopping and leisure. This will be a magnet for visitors from across London, the UK and further afield, And best of all, it’s a mere 5 minutes walk from Tileyard.

Check out this video from designer Thomas Heatherwick, as he explains his thinking behind the design. “As a local person I was thinking what’s missing, how do you do something that is really particular to here?” Heatherwick says in the video.
