Re-branding Kings Cross – prize donated – £50 of drinks at the Rotunda, Kings Place

ROTUNDA kings placeWe’ve been having a lot of fun this morning with a community driven re-branding of Kings Cross, rather than letting Foxtons do it for us.  We’ve had dozens of suggestions from the sublime to the ridiculous to add to our listFavourites so far:

‘we should ditch Islington and Camden, and form a new London Borough of Battlebridge. We can include the N1C area as I like the fountains, and it means that a newly-built Town Hall will be ours. And Waitrose.’

‘why not call it Boudicca City’


‘King’s Cross station is on the site of an old smallpox hospital, and the neighbourhood was famous for its sex workers. What about Poxville? Kings Poxville? Poxton (a name for Foxton to treasure)? Kings Spot?’

‘Valley of the King’s’


Keep them coming in because we even have a donation of a prize: a £50 bar tab at Rotunda  Bar and Restaurant, Kings Place.  Enter by commenting on this post or filling in the contact form below. We’ll select a winner on Friday afternoon sometime probably and we’ll need your email address to send you a beer token (t&c below). And no we are not selling out to commercial forces, it’s all a bit of fun. The normal service of dour planning updates, misery about Network Rail, gyratory tales, moaning about the council and nature observations will resume next week under our new title of ‘Estates Gazette: Kings Cross edition’.
