Kings Cross / St Pancras Hotel & Accommodation

King's Cross is 5 km north of Charing Cross, and from here, by train, you can go all over the place. KC's had a rep for seediness, but has been cleaning up its act lately. It's also added a platform 9 ¾, in honour of Harry Potter. St Pancras station's done in deadset gorgeous Gothic architecture. Next door is the British Library. King's Cross St Pancras serves six lines, and is a Eurostar terminus, meaning it can get you all over the continent. Rooms fit for a King. Find a place to stay below.
