Kings Cross has some interesting history and was a rural area in 1750. It soon grew popular and became a part of London. Eurostar operates from here as well as a very busy tube station.

This is a much improved railway station with great facilities and restaurants. Architecturally it is not as good as St Pancras station next door. It serves both overground and underground trains. The Eurostar trains leave from St Pancras International station next door.

Old and new side-by-side- an impressive performance by the architects who have successfully updated the station area. There is a buzz about the place with both the main line station and the international hub next each other.

Home to the Kings Cross and St Pancras International train stations, this area was a busy thoroughfare when we visited - lots of people bustling around especially around the train stations and outside, the area is home to some beautiful historic buildings.
