London Kings Cross Granary Square Adventures

I met a friend on Friday for a gorgeous brunch at Caravan Kings Cross. After we scoffed some lush food we went for a wander around the area. It has changed so much in the five years I have lived in London and we came across some beautiful little events at Granary Square.


We set off to look at the London Pond Club outdoor natural swimming pool (behind UAL buildings) and stumbled upon PunkX exhibition that showcases the early work of Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren circa 1967. There was an impressive collection of clothing from their Kings Road SEX boutique including the now infamous Sex Pistols 'God Save the Queen' t-shirts and the bondage inspired trousers and jackets. I love the punk attitude of just giving it a go!














The amazing Skip Garden and London Pond Club (a further 5 minutes walk behind Granary Square) was very inspiring with such beautiful plants and inventive ways for urban gardening. I am definitely going back as they have a lovely little cafe too.
