Good facilities but expensive

Good facilities, generally nice & clean Benito hat has a fantastic breakfast. Toilets cost 30p. Not much but still cheeky to take a comfort break!

It is very nice place, nice building it is fun to watch people from above scattering and when their time is up hooray in to the platforms. Busy and active, also very neat, but definitely you need to be in top shape to get to the train, if you don't know what is going on and you don't hurry, you... More

If you are a Harry Potter fan, then that is the only reason to visit here (unless you are actually catching a train somewhere).

It's a must if you are a Harry Potter fan! Platform 9 3/4 was definitely worth the hour wait! Something about it is just so magical!

Of course if you are an Australian you will want to go to Kings Cross station. It is clean and I loved the clock and also the entrance - but the trains are also worth inspecting!
