Coal Drops Yard


A vibrant new shopping street has just landed in the heart of London, in the centre of King’s Cross. It is home to over 50 stores, restaurants and cafés, bringing together a community of like-minded brands in a reimagined set of historic buildings and arches directly adjacent to Granary Square and Regent’s Canal. 


Originally established in 1850 to handle the 8 million tonnes of coal delivered to the capital each year, the area has been revamped by the acclaimed Heatherwick Studio, which has interwoven a contemporary design with the surviving structures, streets and rich ironwork of the original Victorian coal drops. Just a few of the impressive shops that you will find at Coal Drops Yard include Cubitts, Form & Thread, Joseph Cheaney & Sons, Fred Perry and Paul Smith. 


Also opened as part of the launch is Lower Stable Street, a new street for pop-ups, live events and experiential stores from a creative collective of established and up-and-coming brands. It is where11 smaller spaces are set to host brand workshops, one-off events and immersive shopping experiences that celebrate fashion, beauty, music, culture and the arts. 


Alongside the independent stores, Coal Drops Yard will house a range of cafés and bars, top restaurants and new public spaces, making it an oasis-like space for visitors to dwell, discover and to explore.  Special in-store events, workshops, pop-ups and talks will all feature as part of an ongoing programme of activities and events.
