Christmas lights at Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross

The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in an incredibly quiet Christmas, with attractions closed and businesses trying to make the best of a really grim festive season.

We took a walk around Kings Cross and Coal Drops Yard on Friday night (18th Dec 2020). In a normal year, the area would have been packed, but with pubs and restaurants closed, there was little life to be found.
