If you arrive early, that is at least 40 minutes ahead of your train departure time, King's Cross affords a number of eating places as well as some shops. Also, some historical/comical things to see, read or do: e.g the queue to take photos at Harry Potter's Hogwarts departure platform nine-three quarters, is never ending. The station was given a make over some years back, and now it is beautifully renewed.

Saw this whilst on a hop on hop off bus and thought as it was on the Monopoly board the exterior would be grander than what it was, so I didn't get off to explore further.

This is a good hub for visiting various cultural locations - British Library, Wellcome Collection, even the British Museum if one is prepared to walk through very interesting back streets for about 15 to 20 minutes. It also is near to a huge number of excellent eating places in Granary Square, Caledonian Road etc. And if one likes Scotch Pies, the outdoor market near one of the exits has a small stall selling them, albeit at £3.80, but very good quality, and especially as Borough Market does not have a stall selling them these days.

I use this station for travel to and from family visits in Yorkshire. Extremely busy, but my trains have always been on time. Facilities are good and for whimsy, there's always Platform 9 3/4 and the Harry Potter shop..
