We got the train from Norwich to kings cross station. Great staff, eager to help us. Lots of clear signs and easy access to everything to need. Such easy travel to and from.

Many Americans arrive at London’s Heathrow Airport first thing in the morning. The most typical (and least expensive) way to get to the city center will be the Underground, Piccadilly Line. It takes about 45 minutes to reach King’s Cross station, a central hub for many who plan to explore the city.

Problem: you certainly don’t want to schlep your luggage around during your first day’s jet-lagged exploration. Solution: Left Luggage depository. King’s Cross Left Luggage desk is right there, so convenient. It’s toward the back, just behind the absurdly long queue of Harry Potter fans waiting to take selfies at famed Platform 9 3/4ths.

But you pay for that convenience. A lot. It costs £12.50 for each bag left more than three hours (and who wouldn’t want to leave it more than three hours?). That is, frankly, almost as extortionate as the airlines’ charge for a “preferred” exit row seat.

But we can exchange money for effort. In this case, the exchange is fairly modest. Instead of King’s Cross Left Luggage, go out the main door, across the square, cross at the light, turn left and adjacent to the McDonald’s you’ll find a left luggage office run by the Excess Baggage Company. It charges you officially £7.50 a day per piece, though when I was there they were running a “special price” sale, £5. For my two roller bags I saved £15 by crossing the street. For me that was worth the (slightly) extra effort, and I was off to the museums. (Note Victoria Coach Station also lists much cheaper left luggage charges, but compared to King’s Cross it’s inconvenient.)

Nice station, everything you need for your trip. It is a busy little station with lots of shops and choice of food plus full
Access to the tube.

You have to wonder why Kings Cross has gone with such a poor offering for food. All the sites for hot food are essentially misplaced. None more so than Leon. Please dont try to get any sort of hot meal here thats not Veggie. The chicken nuggets are clearly made from all the cheap parts and then very poorly cooked. You are constantly checking if its ok to eat them. 3 of the 4 i got were so pink I didnt dare eat them. The fries are made to look a bit cool but essentially end up being flaccid and undercooked.
Finally the Korean burger was made up apparently of chicken but the meat looked grey and such I strange colour it just wasnt worth the risk to eat it.
Even a basic McDonald's would be a much higher level than this.
If you have any chance do not eat here its simply awful.

What a fantastic place! It is a beautiful train station in London which just happens to be where my favorite fictional character would go to get on the Hogwarts Express! The station itself is an architectural beauty with many fine restaurants. Even if you are not taking a train anywhere, go see King's Cross Station - its a must see!
