What lights beneath King’s Cross: new LED tunnel beneath St Pancras

Flashing light displays: until now their use in London has largely been restricted to providing a backdrop for unadventurous tourist selfies in Piccadilly Circus. But the developers behind the King’s Cross refurb have changed all that by opening a spectacular 90-metre tunnel that looks a bit like Bridget Riley reinterpreting ‘Tron’. It links Pancras Square to King’s Cross and St Pancras rail stations and features an ‘art wall’ made from LED lights, which will be used to showcase artistic commissions. Sadly, it’s only open until 8pm at night. Which rather puts the kibosh on our plans to turn up with a tinny soundsystem and some booze for an impromptu rave. You know what they say: glow hard or glow home.
