Only used the underground, never the main line. However we have walked through the station to platform 9 and three quarters and the Harry Potter shop. It is clean and light. On the mezzanine level there is a good range of food outlets and lots of seating. Not a bad place to wait for a train.

Very nice facility. I had to catch a train to Glasgow. Plenty of food and shopping. The service folks at the ticket counter were very nice.

The station is huge and stunning. There is a spot in the station for the display of the entry of Harry Potter station. It is really good.

We used this station to travel from London to Paris on the Eurostar Train and loved how clean, comfortable and quaint it was. The staff there was helpful and service oriented and we enjoyed the shops in the station while waiting for our train to depart. Wonderful stop to see the trains working in London!

Always glad to be arriving or leaving & always pass through kings cross without fuss or delay. Small selection of shops & restaurants to browse if delayed. Clean, tidy & good facilities. Nuisance having to pay 30p for the toilets though, or queue to get change to use them.

I travel from this station on a regular basis, it can be very busy at peak time. There are lots of Cafe's Giraffe, Pret, Starbucks, Nero's etc., plus Waitrose, Smiths and M&S, there is limited seating while waiting for trains with access to the underground from the Station. This station is always very clean with a very modern beautiful glass... More

Kings Cross station is a famous old station but over the years it's upgraded beyond belief is clean and smoothly run with a wide variety of shops for food and drink, not the cheapest I have to say . Try waitrose for the best deals! . The sound system is clear and the trains run on time.( mostly)

King's Cross is one of many London transport hubs....depending where you are going. It offers its own unique architecture and it an interesting place to travel through.

Called through after a trip on the Eurostar, nice and spacious but certainly needs more seats and comfy ones, staff are few and far between too
