The train station does exactly what you need it to, quick access to underground or taxis. I have always found it clean and easy to get around.

Something to see, even if you're not traveling by train. I suggest that you go and find the toilets (could be a bit more accessible) on the first floor, and you will have a very nice view of all the people waiting to see which platform their train will depart from. If you come from a small country like me,... More

We went there strictly to see Platform 9 3/4, I guess I should have expected a long line up to take photos, but I didn't expect that many people- there must have been over 150 people waiting in line. I don't know who were the people managing the line, but they had hats and scarfs for people to use in... More

The station is newly refurbished, it's spacious, clean, we'll sign posted throughout and feels safe with plenty of staff presence and the required transport police. There is no shortage of facilities at the station and the information for travellers is very good and widely available.

I'll be honest we made sure to stop at this station specifically because of the Harry Potter connection. It was super fun to be in a place that is such a big part of the books. There was a cart you could take a pic with that made it look like you were going to platform 9 3/4 and we... More

This has got to be the cleanest subway system in the world and makes me wonder why in the heck Los Angeles didn't ask for help when designing ours. Any who, I love this station and the employees are so helpful! Thank you guy behind the glass window.

Most train stations are pretty dull and boring but Kings Cross has quite a bit going on with lots of seating and also shops to look round while you are waiting for transport

This was so much fun for my granddaughter who is a huge Harry Potter fan. She has seen all the movies, read all the books. Just being in the station was a treat for both of us.

Another one of many Stations that have been refurbished. Nicely done, smaller that some of the other stations, grand on the outside, and really clean on the inside. Some shops and restaurants as there are in all Stations. Harry Potter 9 3/4 station and a photo opportunity if you want to stand in line. There is a small 9 3/4... More

I admit it, the only reason that we went into King's Cross Train Station (arrived via the Underground, exited onto the street, and walked the few feet over to the front doors of the train station) to take our photo with the Harry Potter trolley-in-the-wall. There's a rope set up to create a line of people and two attendants, one... More
