Friday 25th July saw First Capital Connect formally name a train after the Max Appeal charity - an organisation associated with the 22q11 deletion syndrome. I wanted to use this review to thank all the FirstCC staff who looked after us so well. The ceremony got delayed but not cancelled (because of an incident on the line) but our party... More

I purchased the tickets for Eurostar to go back to Brussels. On the way I noticed the whole of the Kings Cross station is very clean and the police man who are duty know the whoe of the station. They can show the way. I may did not notice the sign boareds properly, so I have to ask some important... More

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.
