What’s new with this month’s Kentishtowner in print?

Only a brand new free sister publication, that’s what. Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to present Gasholder. Plus we list the 75 stockists on a handy map

We are beyond excited. Why? Because, across dozens of north London shops, libraries, pubs, galleries and cafes is a very special edition of our print title. Yup, this issue of Kentishtowner is like no other. But don’t worry, it’ll still cost you absolutely nada.

We’re back with our first ever double-sided special edition to mark the launch of new title Gasholder, a guide to all things King’s Cross, St Pancras, Euston – and beyond.

First things first: it’s business as usual on the Kentishtowner side. So take a deep breath for our whopping guide to 37 things to do this autumn, an encounter with an innovative local lighting svengali, and our favourite new lunch spot revealed. Elsewhere columnist Sarah Park talks about her bete noir: couples snogging on the tube before 9am.

And flip the issue over for the debut instalment of Gasholder, a taste of north London’s fastest changing neighbourhood: there are interviews with community figures, including the first Muslim mayor and a twentysomething coffee guru, a rundown of the tastiest places to eat on all budgets, top tips to lesser known attractions and galleries, and, as you can see, a specially commissioned cultural map on the cover by our artist Sian Pattenden.


Why the name? Simple: it symbolises both the area’s industrious past (there were once 23 of the magnificent Victorian structures) and its future, now that the iconic Gasholder No.8 is back in place. Even better, it’s set to be a forthcoming arts venue and park.

The joint issue of Gasholder/Kentishtowner is now available FREE at 75 key pubs, bars, shops and cafes in eight London postcodes: N1, WC1, N1C, NW1, N7, NW5, N19, and NW3 and WC1 (see map and list below).
