Next to St Pancras International with the new Eurostar terminal and within easy walking distance of Euston, King’s Cross railway stations and six tube lines, the British Library is at the centre of the UK and European transportation network.
The British Library’s state of the art Knowledge Centre has its own private entrance from the Piazza and offers exceptional and flexible facilities for conferences, meetings, product launches, lectures, private screenings and media events. An impressive staircase leads from the manned reception area with dedicated cloakroom to the upper level and a lift for wheelchair access to the upper floor.
Re-launched in the summer of 2017, the Terrace Restaurant is a light and open space. The outdoor terrace offers a unique central London event space for barbecues and receptions.
