Pourquoi les habitants le recommandent
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.
