King's Cross has been named as one of the best places to live by the The Sunday Times, and there's still a chance to buy a premium apartment in one of the area's iconic gasholders - if you have the money.

With great transport links, shops, a canal and a vibrant tech scene - Google and Meta (Facebook, Instagram) are neighbours - the sought-after neighbourhood is also home to some unique properties, such as its canal-side penthouse apartments in a cast iron gasholder.

Gasholders London comprises 145 distinctive apartments. Designed by two-time Stirling Prize winner Wilkinson Eyre, a combination of one, two and three bedroom residences have been built within a refurbished triplet of Grade II-listed, cast iron gasholder guide frames.
