Love in the Yard

valentines homepage valentines homepage mobile

Valentine’s Day has a long, complicated history that stretches back to ancient Rome. It took until the 19th century when the fashion for sending mass-produced, anonymous cards swept Victorian England, the rest, as they say, is history.  Or not quite.  Fittingly for a day that’s been around in one form or another for so long, Valentine’s Day continues to change with the times. Forget the couples-only event that used to define it, today, 14th February is an inclusive celebration of all kinds of love and friendship.  An opportunity to not only honour romantic partners, friends (Galentines), siblings and anyone you might choose to.


This February is the perfect time to visit Coal Drops Yard, wander canal-side and take in the creative and vibrant shopping and cultural scene that makes this area of King’s Cross so unique. You will find everything from bespoke shopping experiences and in-store personalisation to workshops and one-off events.
