Kings Cross is an area in the London Borough of Camden in the north of central London, England. The area was previously known as Battle Bridge until 1830, when a short lived monument was erected at the junction of Gray's Inn Road[?], Pentonville Road, and New Road, which later became Euston Road. At this junction is the site of Kings Cross station.

Several gaswork tanks that had dominated the area behind station for over a century are to be pulled down.
