Visit us

House of Illustration is located at 2 Granary Square, a few minutes' walk from King's Cross Station.

To find us, take the Regent's Canal exit. Turn right to join King's Boulevard, a pedestrian route going north. Cross over the road and the canal at the top of the Boulevard, and Granary Square is directly in front of you. Youll find us at the north-east corner, to the right of Central Saint Martin's.

Please note this is the Granary Square in King's Cross, not in Islington. View a map here.
