    Always worth checking your ticket price at the desk. Ticket online: £31.90. Buy it at a machine: £39.40. Go to the ticket desk, same price. Explain predicament. Get ticket for £30.10.

    Loads of shops, loads of trains and amazing architecture!

    That roof.

  • Jenny L.

    For the 9¾ station setting, it's actually next to the Harry Potter store. Don't really go to the station you can't get in!

    Stunning architecture in main concourse. Harry Potter of course and great connections to wider London. Good wifi at Prezzo

    Fast and easy way to go to Cambridge. From Lindon King's Cross station you can also take a train to Hogwarts.

    The East Coast first class lounge closes at around 21:20 so if you've booked the last train you won't be able to use it

    Go early in the morning or late night to see Harry Potter's platform 9 3/4 empty and get a good picture. During the day you might face long queues.

  • Dayna M.

    Great selection of cafes, relaxing to sit in and watch people go on their way while waiting for your train. Or stop at platform 9 3/4s!

    Dayna McAlpine · March 3
  • Phil S.

    I recommend the bookshop, Watermarks, next to the Harry Potter exhibit. It has a good eclectic range, lovely staff, and appears to be an independent - always a good thing in, er, my book !

    Hungry? Leon is cheap and has excellent food! Order the rice with meatballs!

    Think there is a bit too much hype over the Platform 9 3/4, I was expecting the cart to be there 24/7 but was dissapointed to find that it's only there during the day (they remove it during the night)

    Michael Fitzgerald · February 13

    Try the nearby Dishoom if you want a hot meal. You can't beat it!

    Get poor man's sushi for £2 at wasabi... Get the chirashi salad, a box of sushi offcuts

    Cate Trotter · January 29
  • Lo C.

    Long platform, allow plenty of time to board the train

    Lo Cosmo · January 24
  • Lo C.

    The Wasabi (sushi takeaway restaurant) in this station only offer a small range of pre-readied bento.

    Lo Cosmo · January 24
  • Bijan Y.

    The modern station ISO much better and with more good and retail establishments to while away the minutes to your train time.

    Bijan Young · January 19

    Breakfast. Modern. Burgers.

    Deffers one of my favourite stations. Former domain of the Deltics.

    Harry Potter's platform 9 3/4 isn't the only draw at King's Cross Railway station. This 20-meter-high steel structure stretches over the Victorian terminal in diamond and triangle shapes. Read more

    Platform 9 3/4 now has a line and costs money to take a picture. Damn.

    Andrew Marks · December 24, 2014
  • Andrew B.

    Go to Giraffe cafe upstairs. The breakfasts and service are great!

    Andrew Birchall · December 13, 2014
  • Stephen C.

    Good connections and a good selection of shops. However, the M&S is tiny compared with the one over the road in St Pancras!

    Stephen Crocker · December 12, 2014
  • Jordi L.

    Always full of people, but you can spend your time at Harry Potter store or the platform 9 3/4.

    Jordi Llobet · December 4, 2014
  • Andrew S.

    Better following the refurbishment but you'll get lost at some point. Go see Harry Potter

    Andrew Smallwood · December 2, 2014
  • Paula B.

    What a difference the building work has made!! I didn't recognise the station at all. Looks amazing. Try and find platform 9 3/4 😀

    Paula Bage · November 29, 2014

    One of the most beautiful train stations on earth

    Marc · November 23, 2014
  • Carlo Alberto T.

    Eurostar ftw

    Huge train station

    Rinawati Hardjanti · November 22, 2014
  • Katherine B.

    The staff at the help desk are helpful, there's a variety of shops there so your able to waste some time when waiting for your train. The only down side is that you have to pay to use the toilets.

    Katherine Bridges · November 9, 2014
  • Alistair

    East Coast trains go from here.

    Alistair · November 7, 2014
  • Martita P.

    New station full of harry potter fans (or maybe they are wizards)

    Martita Pinilla · October 23, 2014
  • Elaine C.

    Love the refurbishment. Quite a hike from Tube to platforms..especially when you only have 5 minutes to catch train!

    Elaine Charity · October 8, 2014
  • Mai M.

    Go go shopping

    Mai Maimai · October 4, 2014
  • Jennifer C.

    New refurb is great although I did struggle to find somewhere to just sit and have a drink. Lots of food options though.

    Jennifer Carter · September 27, 2014
  • Kit&kafoodle

    Cool beans. Just like Harry Potter. Easy to navigate and well signposted.

    Best station in London since the makeover

    clive kornitzer · September 22, 2014

    You can get to pretty much anywhere in London from here

    Juha Ristolainen · September 9, 2014
  • Arman K.

    Great atmosphere and lots of great shops and places to eat.

    Arman Kushniyan · September 5, 2014
  • Dave S.

    Toilets are 30p. A few seats for 1000's of passengers an hour. Rampantly comnercial development. Excelkent architecture but in oractise, no nicer to use than the old shed was.

    Dave Scurrah · September 1, 2014
  • Gail C.

    Wasabi food is great

    Gail Chan · September 1, 2014

    9 3/4 is where the magic starts😍

    Go to Benito's Hat if you need food before your journey. Good Burritos!

    Sam Bloor · August 8, 2014
  • Theresa T 💞

    The station is beautiful!

    Theresa T 💞 · August 7, 2014
  • Oliver S.

    Yes, it's THAT station from Harry Potter. Nope, it doesn't look like the one from the film (that's the one next door)

    Oliver Shreeve · August 7, 2014
  • Simon G.

    If you want to get cash out, you may be better off using the ATMs in St Pancras. The ones at King's Cross are fitted really low down on the wall, making them hard to use if you are of average height.
