If you’re a Harry Potter fan this is a must see for platform 9 3/4. There may be a bit of a line, but it moves pretty quickly.

I travelled yesterday with a family member. It was the usual busy train station. However, you have to pay 30p to use the toilets which are located on the concourse. To be honest not a great location, and not clean either. If 30pbis being charged,...More

Busy & crowded but clean with pleasant staff. There are good signs directing to the sightseeing spots when leaving at the exits

I was disappointed with the wrap. It was cold and if a food inspector had seen it I wonder what their comments would have been. It certainly did not meet good hygiene standards in my opinion.

There are several places to eat inside the station, along the lines of cafes or quick sandwich pickup vendors. I’m sure there are a number of other choices outside of the station nearby, since it is located in a busy area of... More

Centralish Travelodge?? (14 Replies)
Just booked trip to London for 18th Aug with a mate. When she's been before she likes to stay at Kings Cross as it's a shortish walk to all the sites and sounds including Camden. Gonna stay at a travelodge for cheapness but unsure which one, Faringdon, Islington or Kings Cross. Coming into Kings Cross station. Help please

The King's Cross Royal Scot gets a slightly better set of reviews than the TL King's Cross - but really, calling one of the hotels an Islington hotel is trying it on a bit, since the Angel is a good 10-15 minute bus ride away. Both hotels are close-ish to King's X station, with plenty of bus and Tube options - if you get a £26 rate at one, then go for it, as those rooms are the same as those that sell for £49 or £79.

London early morning peakhour. (9 Replies)
We will be staying in Westminster and need to get to King Cross station for a 9am train to Scotland. How early do we need to leave our hotel if travelling by taxi? I have the option of booking an 11 am train to avoid the peak hour. Input would be appreciated.

I'd get a taxi at 8. Funnily enough, "peak hour" travel concerns in London generally relate to crowded tubes and buses - driving cars in central London is but a distant memory for many of us. Mike
