Unlike adjacent St. Pancras Station, Kring's Cross lost much of its historic appeal due to recent renovations focusing on glass and concrete constructions. It can be skipped by tourists, except for Harry Potter fans. The iconic platform 9 3/4 is located in the station, and although the actual platform is only accessible through ticketing gates, a mock-up is located in... More

A must visit for so many reasons. Monopoly, many fictional characters including Harry Potter. They've even set a photo op up at platform 9 3/4 which you can queue for. Station itself is clean and modern and a gateway to the rest of the country.

For all the Harry potter fans, there is a replica of 9 3/4 Platform where you can take a souvenir picture of yourself pushing the trolley into 9 3/4 Platform with the hat & scarf. But beware, the queues for this photo-op can be quite long, at times you may have to wait for an hour

The station is well known for the first station to Hogwarts People were waiting in a line for about 10 to 15 minutes. The photos were taken and I bought one of them. I enjoyed myself there.

When I travelled on the morning of 14th November (with two bags) there was no assistance, no trolleys on the concourse - surprise surprise they were all parked on the platform. Ridiculously touchy staff objected to my comments, at my third request to be let through the stupidly narrow barrier, which jammed up my bags time and again. I was... More

Pizza Express is a chain all over London. Unlike most chains the food here is very good. Individual pizzas are thin crust and come in variety of selections. The pasta's and salads are also outstanding. Service is quick, efficient and friendly. If you want a reasonable meal that doesn't take forever visit any one of the many chains throughout the...

Very clean and smart. No stress needed - the bridge that takes you over to the other stations is ideal especially on busy days. Well done London

This was our first time using the station since it had been refurbished and the new concourse added. We arrived there by train and found leaving simple and efficient through the barriers, though we could only find access to the Underground station by steps, no lift was evident. A few days later we were using the station to return and... More

Visited kings cross as my stop into London via the train, didn't know what platform I needed, clear signing and staff willing to help, found the platform easily. Station clean and tidy, no issues

Travelled down from Darlington to Kings Cross and arrived at none o'clock. The changes made to the train station make it a lot easier to get out of the station and into the tube station.
