The main touristic attraction in King's Cross Station is the Harry Potter Shop and the platform 9 and 3/4 :)) It's a quite funny thing.. They have a lot of Harry Potter items.. but they are very expensive.. However, it's nice to spend an hour walking through the station and the shop..

We went to London in May and both times that we passed through the station to travel back up north, it was clean, well kept and a nice station to use. The toilets are 20p per use on a barrier system which is a bit annoying which is the only reason it does not get a 5* rating. Nice places... More

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

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.
