Originally coming from a small town in North America I'm easily impressed with the infrastructure in Europe. With that said I always enjoy my visits to Kings Cross and the high speed service is usually quite enjoyable. Most of the station is clean and there are loads of decent places to find a good meal. I do agree the lack... More

Hve recently visited longs cross and- wow!!!! The old station was a ' toilet' !!! Horrible place to be. Dirty and shabby, but now........... It is amazing! Fantastic modern architecture which is stunning!! Many retail units added at both ground or and mezzanine levels.

This used to be a great station but it has now been modernised and sanitised so much that it has completely lost its heart. It used to be possible to stand at the end of the platforms and watch the trains arriving and departing, something that I first did over fifty years ago. Now that is impossible because of "security"... More

Some stations (e.g. Antwerp) are a work of art; some have a real style (e.g. Paddington), and some are just big and unwieldy. Brussels is one, King's Cross another. Try negotiating from the nether reaches of the Tube to the main road, and see whether the signs will get you there. This is not to say that there is a... More

As the title of the review states there are a few Pros and Cons to this station. PROS: - Big Depature Board (With Correct Information) - Lots of places inside to get food. (WH Smiths, and various resturants) CONS: - Have to pay to use the toliet - No Bins in the station.

Platform 9 and 3/4 was a fun tourist attraction! You're allowed to take pictures on your own camera and are not required to pay for a professional photo. The station itself is nice, but I noticed that although there are places to order food, there are no trash or recycling bins anywhere in the entire station. People left trash on... More

The new station is beautiful but there are two things that really annoy me. 1 The lack of seating. Often there are hundreds of people standing stareing up at the boards in a huge emoty space. So why not add more seating. 2 having to pay to go to the toilet. Over at St Pancaras today killing time we found... More

This is a really well organised and clean station in a great location close to the main attractions in London. There are many shops and food takeaways to choose from and the staff are very helpful.

In king's cross station you could do a lot of things, its not really far from russel square, you just need to walk 10 minutes at least. Don't forget to take a pic in platform 9 3/4 (harry potter setting), in a station you could enjoy the culinary (pastry, pasta, coffee shop and restaurant). Outside the station you'll get more...
