This building near King’s Cross is an amazing blend of modern architecture and ancient leather-bound tomes. It’s really pleasant to sit and use their fast wifi or have a meeting in the cafe or public area while gazing up at the King’s Library—65,000 volumes assembled by George III and displayed in a striking glass column. For the comfiest spot, look for the padded leather armchairs with coveted built-in electrical outlets. You’ll have to join the queue of regulars that forms before the library opens in order to nab one.

Great place to study if you're in London on a course or internship and it's a great afternoon out for the exhibitions.
The British Library stores a copy of each book that has ever been published. There are temporary exhibitions, a Café and interesting architecture. It makes for a break on a London city tour.

“An Indian restaurant that is extremely popular. Most times you need to queue before you get seated - might be up to 2 hours for dinner in weekends but less time for lunch in week days.”
