I understand I will pay more for food in a railway station and that it is likely to be 'fast food', but this wasn't good. I am a regular traveller to and from London and fancied a burger for a change, there was sadly nothing good about mine. A cheese and bacon burger with fries, approx. £10, a small number... More

Was very impressed with the revamped railway station. We checked our bags in to storage while we went along to cambden market. Upon our return and cases collected we went to the pub upstairs which was absolutely great. Really impressive and a lot of other stations could take note

We had bought tickets for a day trip to Leeds on January 9, right, the day of the London tube strike, so after spending 2 1/2 hours on two buses (instead of 15 minutes with the tube) we arrived 11:05 (the time for our departure) at the station and did not know from which platform our train departed. Yes, we... More

I arrived on Sunday Morning ( 7.30am ) to go back North to Edinburgh from attending the 2000ad 40th anniversary celebration in Hammersmith - my mistake ( when arriving from the London Underground ) was not going to the main departure hall ,to look at the Full Displays of Departures / Arrivals - however I assumed that the Platform 2...

Being a big fan of Harry Potter, this was a must do event. Platform 9 and 3/4's plays a role in every book and it was cool to see Kings Cross is an actual place. My 12 year old, who fancies herself as a Ravenclaw, couldn't wipe the smile from her face. A must see!

Now has a good selection of bars, restaurants, food outlets and shops. Central information stand. Train information display easy to read but platform information very delayed so everyone has to wait until the last minute then rush to the platform- difficult for people with disabilities and with young children. Harry Potter photos available and shop gives added interest but items... More

Got to stand in line and take a picture with the wall heading to platform 9 3/4. Although the line was quite long, it was a fun experience.

We came here precisely because we had a teenaged daughter who read all the Potter Books and there was platform 9 and 3/4 for all the Potter fans. The station itself is beautiful. Think old, nostalgic building with a massive modern addition in front of glass and steel. It is airy and lofty with escalators going up to restaurants with... More

I guess you come through any rail station purely because you have to. However, King's Cross/ St Pancras is a hugely impressive landmark. The station has been heavily modernised in line with the international traffic, and while the wonderful architecture has been retained, the new modern areas are both stunning and work efficiently. I have been coming through here each... More

I use Kings Cross regularly as it is the London hub for trains from Peterborough. Gone are the days of drafty cold miserable waits for the train, now the concourse is inviting, with plenty of shops and restaurants while you wait. If you have a first class ticket, head to the first class lounge where you can relax and wait... More
