Clink78 is situated in a conservation area, which boldly aims to introduce a village feel to urban London. Clink78 is centrally located in Kings Cross, to the north are Camden Market and Regent’s Park zoo. To the south is the world famous British Museum, St Paul’s Cathedral and The Tate Modern Museum. To the East is the trendy nightlife of Angel, Old St and Farringdon. To the west are the shops of Covent Garden and Oxford St. All are just a short walk/tube ride away.
Whichever exit you choose make sure you are on Euston rd and Kings Cross station is to your back. Euston rd becomes Pentonville rd. Take the 2nd street on your right, this is Kings Cross rd. Walk down for 400m, we are the Courthouse building on the left after Travelodge. Alternatively you can catch bus 63 direction Elephant & Castle, it will stop in front of Clink78 (2 stops only).
