A taxi driver's guide to Euston

You’ve just pulled up in your Euston taxi and you’re standing in front of the station concourse. A thought crosses your mind but you don’t want to be rude. Let’s just say it – Euston Station isn’t exactly the prettiest of places – it’s OK, we all know that. But it hasn’t always been that way. Amazingly, the original building was actually something of a looker. Famous the world over for its ornate Doric arch and palatial Grand Hall. It wasn’t until the station fell foul of a vicious fire and some rather overzealous but uninspired developers that it came to look the way it does today. Leaving behind a place most of us are keen to quickly escape. A major presumption about Euston is that it’s a bit isolated – nowhere near anything good or fun. Most people don’t even realise it’s only a five minute walk from Kings Cross St. Pancras. Of course there’s the inter-city rail service to the North of England and even quick access to the Victoria line. But what many people forget is that Euston offers us so much more than just a portal out of the city, it has a few hidden gems of its own. Another commonly forgotten string to Euston’s bow is that it sits in the borough of Camden. Meaning that it’s pretty much surrounded with great stuff. All it takes is a little wander and you’ll soon discover dozens of terrific places to drink, eat and hang out. A short walk to Camden High St, The British Museum, Regent’s Canal and even glamorous Soho. Euston doesn’t have to just be an eyesore. For all the best hints and tips on how to make the most of the area, follow our Euston taxi driver’s guide. You’ll be amazed at the things you can do.
