Both times that I have been to London, we have stayed in the Kings Cross/Euston Station area. Due to this, it only took about 2 minutes to walk to Kings Cross station. This was soooo convenient. While you will pay a bit of money to stay in this location, you will save money on having to buy a London Underground... More

It had been years since I was last at Kings Cross. I don't use the trains from there and as it used to be a windswept, rather filthy dump (I liked it really) I usually tried to give it a wide berth in favour of the newly redone St Pancras Station next door. In an attempt to stay warm on... More

Great choice of restaurants, usually good service. Beautiful architecture, connects to most of Northern UK areas and also international. Bonus as you can take a picture with the Harry Potter platform 9 + 3/4

Unfortunately my last visit to Kings Cross was when it was closed on 27/12 and the taxi rank was as far as I ventured. The waiting space is much improved but the lack of and poor positioning of ramps toward St Pancras underground leaves a lot to be desired with heavy cases particularly the entrance from Euston Road

A must for every Harry Potter fan. Not to mention it's a major station to get around London. As you walk through the station, make sure to look up :)

I was not aware that this was so beautiful! Went to catch a train, and was enchanted! There was so much to see that I wished I'd come with more time!
