The British Library

Reasons.London will take place in the wonderful British Library. The British Library is the national library of the United Kingdom and the largest library in the world by number of items catalogued. It holds well over 150 million items from many countries.

Situated only yards from King’s Cross Station, our venue is very easy to get to, with plenty of great social hang-outs (pubs!), places to stay and eat, a ton of history, and one of Britain's most easy to get to locations in London!

You can find the The British Library here:
96 Euston Rd, Kings Cross, London NW1 2DB.

King’s Cross might be best known for King’s Cross and St Pancras stations (and Harry Potter’s Platform 9¾), but recent regeneration has made the area flourish. Restaurants nearby feature everything from British to Ethiopian cuisine.

Going out for a meal in King's Cross should be so much more than grabbing something at a station stall before catching your train, though you'll need to know where you're heading to find something special. Here is a list of restaurants near King's Cross.
