Having been to the ''Cross'' as it is known throughout my travelling life and witnessed its ups and downs I can certainly say that is on an Upper and long may ot stay that way. Plenty of shops and cafes and even a few bars. The concourse is now like a waiting area at an airport with a very good... More

I usually would never write a review of a train station, but this is akin to Grand Central, it's iconic and a sight to see of it's own (much of that is due to my love of Harry Potter). There are plenty of shops and restaurants inside and it has the always fun Platform 9 3/4 from the Harry Potter... More

Group of four came for dinner. A decent selection of beer available. We had fish and chips, a couple of burgers and a wrap. The fish was small, with excess batter to make it look bigger.

The recent work here has all been worthwhile and Kings Cross is no longer a shabby, scary place to be but a bright, restaurant and bar filled, easy to navigate, Harry Potter featured, huge departure screened, friendly place to be! One of London's main rail termini for both national intercity trains (North) and for the Underground. Easy to navigate and... More

Cool station with a Waitrose - passing through here everyday does not lessen the amazement at the architecture.

A huge station that links both underground and overground rail. Its so big that the arrival and departures are shown on screens like the old airports. The busy station has many food and drink bars and a helpful info desk with cheerful staff. Every staff in the entire building is helpful for directions. Go to the info desk and they... More

Lots of food places to choose from and a few shops to browse in whilst waiting for the train. Not a lot of seating though. Toilets are on first floor,escalator and lift available, need 30pence to use!!! Like the Harry Potter... More

We always travel into London via King's Cross. We have had several incidences of poor customer service here, especially at busy times and/or when there is a problem. Staff can become snappy and dismissive to travellers who find themselves stranded through no fault of their own. Having said this, I have also had great service from one lovely gentleman in... More
