The Lighthouse Building at King's Cross
The Lighthouse Building at King’s Cross

King’s Cross in North London was once known as Battle Bridge! Here a bridge once crossed the River Fleet, and it was here that Boudica headed her Iceni tribe in battle against the Roman Army then guarding the city of Londinium and it’s inhabitants.

The name King’s Cross comes from an unpopular monument erected to King George IV and a Cross that once stood on the site of the now King’s Cross station.
