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.

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

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

It was really funny to see how many kids want a photo at the fake 9 3/4 tracks. But the station building was nice. There are so many station in London, we have visited some of them on our way, this was one of the most beautiful.

I spent two weekends near this place. Close to the underway system. The 9 3/4 platform is super fun. A lots of people que there. When I bought train tickets around UK, the employee have very good suggestions, save us 100 pounds!

Given wrong info by staff member at one if your help desks which culminated in us missing our train. Other staff not knowing platforms etc. ruined a good weekend. Very poor lost property service which I feel is virtually non existent!
