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.

It can be done, a happy marriage between English Heritage, architects and developers. Kings Cross station has in recent years been transformed from one of the ugliest London mainline railway stations to one of the best. Light and airy, the roof is very impressive. Plus...More
