The front piazza appears now to be completed and, with the sculptures, makes a very pleasant area. The food market wasn't operating when I last visited but is a great addition.

Got to London Kings Cross Station in order to catch a train at St Pancras International Station for Cambridge. Unfortunately neither my wife nor I could find a lift/escalator and therefore I had to carry two large suitcases up the stairs. We felt the signage was also poor. We asked a few of the employees for directions and were sent... More

A newly refurbished main line railway station worth a visit just to admire the stunning modern architecture. A large shopping plaza is incorporated with a good selection of food and retail outlets ideal for the traveller. Modern access points to the platforms and very good information boards. Bit of a long walk from the Underground to the main line station... More

This busy transport hub appears to be remembered for its faults rather than the day to day excellent service its ground workers provide. My review compliments all those personnel involved in keeping the trains, station tidy and clean. A thankless job undertaken by very hard working teams ensure a smooth running operation at most times.

Kings Cross Station is a major railway and underground station in central London. It is near Regents Park and the British Library. It is home to Platform 9 3/4 where the train departs for Hogwarts.

It's nice Station, very organized and good passenger information. If you have enough time, you can take a picture at the Harry Potter Platform 9 3/4.
