If you’ve ever watched any of the Harry Potter movies, you’ll know that the Hogwarts Express leaves from London’s St. Pancras Station, in King’s Cross.
King’s Cross is a fascinating neighbourhood with a rich history, in turns industrial, then taken over by artists attracted to cheap lofts and now increasingly residential.
The Guardian newspaper, with their headquarters close by, has released an app (iPhone and Android) that tells the stories of the neighbourhood. Open the app, select your location on the built-in map and start listening. In case you don’t happen to be in London, you can still access everything on The Guardian’s website.
