Platform 9 and 3/4.. naturally

King's Cross was so cool! We loved it. And of course as huge Harry Potter Fans it's really cool to see the whole place but also the platform 9 and 3/4 they've made!

Don't you just love how they have made St Pancras and Kings Cross "destinations" and they certainly have. I love St P's but have now discovered KC and think it's fab. And what they are doing with the area around here is fantastic. If in London please go, and you don't have to catch a train.

We booked a hotel near this station so we used it a lot. The outside and inside of the station is very beautiful with lots of places to eat and drink and little shops around it. Some days we did some serious walking to get to where we wanted since it's a big station connecting many lines, so be prepared.

Try the 'real' cider in the Parcel Room (pub upstairs) ...you won't be disappointed. But the real winner is the roof!!

You can take a picture at a typical harry potter scenery. Don't expect too much, but it's worth going if the line is not too long!

With whatever ungodly amount of money that was spent modernising Kings Cross, it is now a pretty spectacular railway station. Very impressive is the soaring ceiling. well designed, a strong feeling of space. A far cry from the old Victorian stations of not so long ago. Which this used to be before the transformation.

My wife and I spent a few days in London recently and booked reserved seats on the East Coast train from York. The return journey only cost us £100 and I was very pleased with Kings Cross Station. The glass roof is very stylish and all the facilities are very good. All in all a very good entrée to London.... More

Like many other London pubs, why force poor quality lagers on your customers? I do not care for the politics behind this, but despite liking this premises and hospitality will not return simply because the lagers on offer taste adequate at best. Bring back some of the brand leaders!

This place is great, modern and well filled with excellent shops and places to eat. It has the Harry potter platform entrance too where you can get photos taken and they do group discounts so it is reasonably priced compared to other sites charges. We stayed Ina B and B across from the station it is a great starting point... More
