The whole renovations to Kings Cross/St. Pancras stations are well worth the visit - the pub in Kings Cross station was very good - highly recommended.

Travelling to York. The station was clean. Staff friendly. Trains punctual. What fabulous architecture and roof design. Good use of flood/up lighting. We visited the Virgin East Coast First Class Lounge. Very good experience.

This is a well run station, great building with intersting architecture, but like most train stations it's a cold, impersonal place. A hub of possibilities, you can get a train to almost anywhere in the UK from here; it's only a short walk to the Eurostar terminal where you can even head to Paris or Brussels or other European cities...

If only the railway service matched the beautiful simplicity of this revamped and redesigned station. Plenty of room, plenty of light, easy to navigate and large, clear information boards displaying train arrivals and departures. It's a delight. Admittedly, the queues of excitable Potter fans waiting to have their photo taken is a little out of place and character with the... More

Kings cross station is accessible for transport however it's not a clean station, staff are approachable, I suspect crime levels are high so keep your wits about you

Needed to get home earlier than scheduled owing to a knee injury and the station staff could not have been more helpful.

Pretty easy to find from the tube. This was my husband's first time ever using a train so it was fun to wait for signs to update with our platform and such. I would agree with other reviewers that there should be more sitting areas.

When I consider how Kings Cross used to be way back when and look at it now, the difference is remarkable, so much space, so clean, nice places to catch a snack/meal, and of course Platform 9 and 3/4 for the Harry Potter fans. Had a good snack at the Giraffe Stop fast food outlet on the balcony

I am always amazed every time I pass through this station that so many passengers have to sit on the floor as there are far too few seats. We go to St Pancras Station if we have to wait as there are more than enough seats there.
