King’s Cross pretty much wins in the world of transport, with the main station housing six different tube lines, with journeys to the City or central London in under 10 minutes. If you’re not impressed by 6 tubes under one roof, you can always walk, with areas such as Bloomsbury, Regent’s Park or Camden Market all only 20 minutes away.

St Pancras Station is home to the Eurostar, should you fancy grabbing some weekend moules and frites for lunch and still getting back home in time for dinner and Strictly.
