GREAT LOCATION

Located in the heart of King’s Cross, Kings Place is a purpose-built conference and arts venue that has been hosting business events, concerts, spoken word evenings, festivals, comedy and visual art for the last 10 years. Kings Place houses the first new build public concert hall to be built in central London since the completion of the Barbican concert hall in 1982. It also has seven floors of office space and has been home to the Guardian newspaper since December 2008. Not only is it just a five-minute walk from two mainline stations, it has four hotels just three minutes’ walk away, so there’ll be no wasting time travelling from accommodation to venue, allowing you to take as much advantage as possible of the facilities available.

EXCELLENT SERVICE

Winner of the Best Conference Venue Customer Service at the Conference Awards 2018, Kings Place houses two auditoriums, which can accommodate up to 400 delegates, two art galleries, a restaurant, a café and 10 unique event spaces. Fitted with state-of-the-art technology, the venue has been host to some of the most technologically demanding events and was the first London venue to have a dedicated 1GB internet line installed.

FOOD & DRINK

There are two places to eat within Kings Place. Perfect for a quick meal, Green & Fortune Café serves up delicious breakfasts, Project pizza, daily selections of sandwiches and hot meals, as well as tempting cakes and an array of beverages.

For more substantial dining, there is Rotunda bar and restaurant, which serves an à la carte menu, tasty bar food, craft beers, cocktails and extensive wines. If the weather is nice, you can eat outside on its waterside terrace.

If you fancy heading out of the building, just a few minutes’ walk away is Granary Square – a magnificent, bustling space at the heart of King’s Cross. Built where barges once unloaded their goods, the square has more than 1,000 choreographed fountains, a plethora of bars, cafés and restaurants to suit all budgets, and shops for a spot of retail therapy.

ECO CREDENTIALS

Fulfilling its Corporate Social Responsibility, the venue was built with green credentials at its heart. Its cultural programme of public performance is managed by a charitable trust, Kings Place Music Foundation, whose income is derived from ticket sales and the hire of its conference and rehearsal spaces.
