About The Great Northern Hotel Kings Cross, St. Pancras, London


We’re in the heart of King’s Cross. Once an industrial transport hub, now one of London’s most exciting and fast changing destinations. Home to the world’s biggest organisations and some of London’s most exciting start-ups. A place brimming with restaurants, bars, shops and venues. It remains London’s most important transport hub – the gateway to the city, the link to the North and the point of embarkation for journeys to Europe.

From here you can explore all London has to offer from its best-connected Underground station, you can discover the past and future of King’s Cross and you can set off on longer journeys. It’s the perfect base.

History & Heritage

Our award-winning, grade II listed hotel was first unveiled in 1854. It’s the oldest railway hotel in London and the only one designed by architect Lewis Cubitt. It’s a place that has much to celebrate and many stories to tell – from the curve that follows the route of the old St Pancras Road, to the thick, clinker-filled walls, to its place in an amazing historical, industrial landscape.

We’re proud of our heritage and passionate about keeping it alive. We have carefully balanced the past and the future to create a hotel that remains relevant, innovative and admired. We celebrate our history but look forward to our future. And we continue to create wonderful experiences for our guests.
