I really liked the layout of this train station with all the platforms laid out side by side in numerical order. Most people would see this as normal but when you've been to stations such as Edinburgh which have platforms all over the shop in no order, using Kings Cross was a real pleasure, especially being one of the biggest...

Average station from what I could tell, places to eat, sit and wait, except there's a 30p charge to use the toilets. Annoying when you're desperate and have no change.

I have used this station several times to go to Northern England by train. The building is beautiful from inside. There are also many cafe, and bathroom on the first floor of the food area. The burring looks very nice from inside the station.

A must for all sorts. The Station design. The area within and between and behind both stations. The fantastic Parcel Room bar. With rooms to hire for meetings, parties, weddings etc etc. Great bars with lots athmosphere and good selection drinks and food. Good selection of cafes fastfood and mini markets. Take time to relax before or after a rail... More

Very quiet tonight. But it's a nice station. It's clean and easy to find your way about. It always surprises me that you switch the barriers off late at night. Why?

The station over the last few years has undergone a complete face lift which has left it as an extensively modernised place, the glass roof formed with a unique steel frame and supports really sets of the central waiting area and with the new floor created that houses restaurants its somewhere to relax while waiting for the train, we did...

Very easy to navigate and use this station. Platform 9 and three quarters always draws a big crowd having their photo taken. Well maintained and staffed. Toilets cost 30p per person per use and food is ridiculously expensive, hence the loss of one point.

This station has been improved in recent years and the transformation is excellent. Don't forgot to have a look at Platform 9 3/4!

It's a few years since I last passed through King's Cross station on my journey's south and I was amazed at the modernisation/transformation since my last visit a number of years ago. I was particularly impressed by some of the metalwork forming part of the roof structure. On our return journey north we had about an hour between trains to... More

Without having done any previous research, we randomly decided to stop by and see if we could find Platform 9 3/4... and sure enough! We found it! Having come all this way, we couldn't NOT join the queue and have our pictures taken. There is also a nearby Harry Potter shop that any fan would enjoy. Afterwards, we grabbed a... More
