 King's Cross is an area of London situated partly in the Borough of Camden and partly in the Borough of Islington.

Traditionally viewed as a somewhat seedy red-light district, the reputation of the area is now picking up in the wake of recent regeneration projects.

The area is the location of the major London rail terminus known as King's Cross Railway Station, opened in 1852.
