Welcome to our King’s Cross Blog, where you can read all about what’s happening at The Karpo Grill, Megaro Bar, Megaro Hotel, The California, our events spaces and beyond. King’s Cross and St Pancras is where we call home…
We like to show off our insider knowledge from time to time and so here are our recommendations for some of the more unusual attractions in London; you know the ones that you won’t find in every guide book you pick up during your stay.
London is absolutely awash with first class museums, with so many on offer that the humble visitor may feel somewhat spoilt for choice during your stay at our King’s Cross hotel. And as most of them are free, you’ll have stacks of cash left over to chuck around liberally in the gift shop. Hurrah!
The Euros 2016 will be a key highlight for all sports lovers this summer, and – hosted just over the Channel – there will be plenty of opportunity for English fans to travel via London to see the matches live. It’s incredibly easy to get to the Eurostar King’s Cross terminal itself, typically by walking from your accommodation here at The California in just a few short minutes.
Visitors to London will invariably find themselves drawn to the thriving hub of Covent Garden; a mecca for shopping, entertainment, culture and superb dining. We are often asked where to eat in Covent Garden, or for recommendations for restaurants near Covent Garden, and these are some of our favourite suggestions.
Spring is officially here but we all know that April is the month of showers and that the British weather will never be the most dependable in the world. That’s why our round-up of April things to do during your stay at our King’s Cross hotel aims to give you plenty of ideas whatever show Mother Nature decides to put on.
Harry Potter fans both young, old (and in-between!) will be delighted by the variety of Potteresque offerings in London, and when you stay with us at The California, you’ll find that you are ideally located to explore them.

But we hate the thought of our guests at Megaro having anything but a great time in London, which is why we’ve compiled this guide on how to beat jet lag and how our King’s Cross apartments can be the best choice for getting the old rhythms back into shape.
Hen parties of the world: Unite! King’s Cross is ideally located for some of the best hen (and stag) party-friendly attractions in the Capital. For some great hen party ideas in London, our guests staying in our King’s Cross b&b at The California need look no further.
