Now that Kings Cross has been refurbished it is a much more spacious and well lit station. Only slight drawback is that some time the departure platform is not announced until about 4 or 5 minutes before departure which can mean a longish run, which is not good when you are carrying a lot of luggage or have a bad...

Secondly the station is revamped and nicely spaced, almost like an airport is a sense. Thirdly and finally, there is a luggage cart half cut into a wall,... More

Kings X is one of the busiest stations in London, so its not really a place to hang out. There is an area for Harry Potter fans, including a shop which always looks nice and busy. Ultimately though, tourists are not particularly welcome when the station is busy. They often get in the way of commuters and Londoners who are... More

As a huge potter head, I couldn't miss the King's Cross Station. I went there with my friends and we waited for 1hour in the queue. The queue wasn't so long but people were very slow.Of course everyone wanted to have a great pic. Anyway if you are a huge potter head DONT MISS HERE.

If you are into the Harry Potter adventures you must get ready to make the line to be able to get a photo at the Platform 9 3/4!

It's a nice, safe station but it could do with some more seating areas especially on the ground floor close to the departure notice boards.

We went exclusively as Harry Potter enthusiasts, and it is with it for the chance to take a picture with the trolley at platform 9 3/4. I've heard there sometimes a husker there, charging for photos. We went after dinner, around 10 pm, and had no issues.
