  • Visitor Information

The new King's Cross home of Central Saint Martins art college will be transformed into Kiwi House during the London Olympics after New Zealand snapped up the One Granary Square building as its hospitality hub during the Games. Kiwi House will be centred in the college's Lethaby Gallery and will also offer an outdoor space with a BBQ. Live entertainment will run throughout the Games, with a range of New Zealand-style food being dished up by a top Kiwi chef. New Zealanders will feel at home with specially imported Moa beer and the whole venue will be open to the public as well as athletes and officials from the New Zealand Olympic Committee. What's more, the location is just a short walk from the Javelin Train terminal at St Pancras, which will deliver fans to the Olympic Park in less than seven minutes.
