Feedback from tour attendees

"I was curious about the new developments and seeing what had happened to King's Cross in the 26 years since I worked in the area. I loved how the new developments are so sensitive to the old"

"We were very interested to see how the King's Cross area is progressing, it's such an important development, taking place almost on our doorstep."
