Kings Cross Station

King’s Cross railway station, also known as London King’s Cross, is a passenger railway terminus in the London Borough of Camden, on the edge of Central London. It is in the London station group, one of the busiest stations in the United Kingdom and the southern terminus of the East Coast Main Line to North East England and Scotland

A significant transport hub

The area known as King’s Cross got its name from a statue of King George IV erected at the crossroads of what is now Euston Road, York Way, Pentonville Road and Grays Inn Road. The monument itself was short lived, being completed in 1836 and demolished in 1845, but the area retained the name. King’s Cross station opened to passengers on 14 October 1852, designed by Lewis Cubitt to be simple and functional. At the time it was the largest railway station in Britain.The station saw significant change throughout the 20th century to meet passenger and freight demand, turning King’s Cross into a significant transport hub. Today, Cubitt’s original Grade 1 listed façade has been revealed once more, together with a square at the front of the station, creating a new public space right in the heart of London.
