I've travelled through Kings Cross many, many times over the years, and it's changed hugely. Spectacular architecture, and a good variety of food and drink outlets.

I've visited London so many time, mostly through this station. The station itself under went a much needed renovation in the last few years and this has made the area much more customer friendly. I found the staff really helpful, even though most of us asking for help usually look harassed or lost. The outside of the station at the... More

I visited kings cross station a few years ago. Of course there was an enormous line to have a picture of you pushing a trolley through platform 9 3/4. I visited the station again today and the line for the photo op is still there, however a store has been added. The store was great! Some items were expensive but... More

I often use trains. But I went out of city first time with my baby. Kingcross station is huge and easy to use. I think there is still a lot of things can be done to make it better.

The station known for its secret platform of the Hogwarts Express, was often mentioned in books or movies. It was opened in 1852 and partly refurbished few years ago. It is a large and bright station, well organized and with some nice bars and shops.

The new style look great. It is spacious and well managed. Good sign boards and clear instructions. Very neat and tidy. A little issue is that a few begging and a few drunk people passing comments if you don't give change. Doesn't reflect Safety required and the reputation goes down as well.

I used to live in Russell Square and had to use Kings Cross many many times for getting about. Tthis was my first visit back there in nearly 30 years and whilst it had retained a lot of its charm, was so very overcrowded, far too busy and had changed beyond belief. To be expected I'm only too aware, but... More

My friend and I flew in from Hawaii and was catching a train to Edinburgh. Structure was amazing. Lots of people. Easy to follow. We had purchased our tickets before hand and just needed to go to a ticket machine. It was easy and just waited around to find out our platform. There are stores to look at to kill... More
