Art Fund moves to Kings Cross

The Art Fund has struck a deal to move its headquarters from South Kensington to King’s Cross, joining the likes of Google and BNP Paribas which have moved their offices to the giant development site. The charity, which helps museums and galleries buy and show works of art, said yesterday it has acquired a 999-year lease on a restored 1850s building on the development site that used to be the original railway offices for the Great Northern Railway.
