Station is modern and stylish, staff and boards are very informative. Decent seating areas and many options for food and drink both upstairs and downstairs. Staff are helpful all over the station and it's easy to connect to the tube station next door or to get a cab outside. Very busy station so keep your valuables with you at all... More

Who doesn't love to walk in the footsteps of Harry Potter? Came through here on the way to the theatre. Fortunately I was with a "native" who knew where they were going.

You can easily go back in time to the old movies you watched about London... with those big and crowded platforms... let's not mention the 9 3/4 platform where you can take pictures with Harry's cart wearing a scarf and even his glasses :)

We made the trek to King's Cross to see the Platform 9 3/4. Be sure to go into the main train station, it will be about 100 meters down on your right, just after the ATM machines. There is likely a line of folks waiting to have their picture taken as if pushing the luggage cart through the wall. The... More

It's magical for Harry Potter fans...even though they charge you an insane amount of money for the print if you want the official photo from the Platform 9 3/4 display. The Harry Potter themed gift shop is wonderful. But King's Cross is definitely NOT just for Harry Potter fans. They mainly stick to their little corner of HP fan things.... More

Only went as I was in a group of huge Harry Potter fans. It was exceptionally busy but this is to be expected in the centre of London.

I love train travel in London. You can just go anywhere you want. I also think that the fares are good. I was able to go from Kings Cross station all the way out to Heathrow Airport. Very very convenient.

I like the new train station. It is modern and clean. Easy to find ways around it. Many eateries and services and facilities. We make use of the left luggage service. The cost is 6 pounds per luggage if below 3 hours. The toilet also needs to pay to use.
