Kings Cross – Images by David HodgkinsonThe new Kings Cross opened this week, a day ahead of schedule with an awesome new ticket hall and new passenger flows with an airport-style arrivals and departures scheme and of course, a refurbished platform 9 3/4. The things has been reviewed to death by the likes of Ian Visits and Londonist but as a part-time spotter, I thought it was worth a look. Yes, yes it is. My son gets a nice new arrival from Hatfield, there are lots of hanging around eating opportunites (although we went over the road to Sourced in St Pancras for brownie and hot chocolate) and a beguiling new Fullers pub tucked away at the back. A visit to the latter is booked for next weekend.
Now for a shiny new terminus at Euston for the HS2.
