Recently restored to its former beauty along with new additions such as the Eurostar. A wonderful structure and a lot more than just a station. Wonderful architecture and must to visit.

One of the most beautiful stations I have ever seen. The building is great form inside and outside. if you like historical architectural buildings, make sure to visit this station. you can have access to many other transport options from this station. If you want to travel from Heathrow, Use the Piccadilly line and you will go there directly.

I think this is the most crowded and busy underground station. You can connect to airport, other cities/places in Uk from Lodnon Kings Cross.Huge underground station with all the amenities. So if you are travelling somewhere in UK and happen to be early at this station then don't hesitate to explore it. I dont remember but some Hollywood movie was... More

Very busy station but very easy to get around. Clean station with lots of facilities...shops, cafes etc. Toilets are very clean but you need to pay 30p to get into the toilets. Platform 9 3/4 is a big attraction with queues of up to an hour to have your photo taken against a wall ! Then the Harry Potter shop... More

It´s not only an underground/train station, the architecture of it is really cool. Harry Potter platform 9 3/4 it's algo there, so if you are a fan, this is a MUST. Next to St. Pancras Station, another old and extraordinary building, international link through eurostar.

Having had to commute through here is the only reason it gets a review. The conveniences are over priced, better value to be had outside at the market, but the links are good to the rest of London.

If you love Harry Potter this is a must go to spot. Word of caution, you do not need to go in between Platforms 9 and 10 to find the photo op spot. To get your Harry Potter fix there is a nice little shop that you can buy even more memorabilia.
