Afternoon Tea


A traditional past-time in King's Cross most inspiring venue. Savour our afternoon tea while learning about the stories of how our area has transformed into the vibrant destination that is today.

The coming of railways into the area in the past made King's Cross the hub for anything and everything - potatoes, furniture, tobacco and timber, most vital of these goods was coal. Victorian London was a city powered by coal, and Coal Drops Yard, the new shopping district in King's Cross was its coal store.

In 1874 the first Pullman train in to the UK operated on the Midland Railway where groups of wealthy travellers embark on mystery tours, these train lines were crucial in transporting not only people but food and other materials. Many discoveries were found when excavating the goods yard near St. Pancras station back in 2011, including evidence of a large potato market and even a banana stall, which was found on old maps used for ripening and selling bananas.

The light blue ironwork found in St. Pancras station was manufactured by the Butterley Iron Company, which was formed in 1790 as Benjamin Outram & Co to exploit the mineral resources of the Erewash Valley particularly the Butterley tunnel in Derbyshire.
