Zone 1 rail station, across Pancras Road from King's Cross mainline station. There is a ticket office for the King's Cross St Pancras Tube station beneath ground level at the front of the building.

This is primarily the Central London terminus for Eurostar services to Paris, Brussels and other northern European cities, and was refurbished for this purpose, re-opening in 2007 (it took over these services from Waterloo Station).

At its northern end there are also platforms for services to the Midlands and, beneath those platforms, a connection with the First Capital Connect (Thameslink) services from Bedford and Luton south to St Albans.

An increasing number of up-market shops and boutiques are opening along the main thoroughfare through the station, which runs below the Eurostar platforms, including a branch of Yo Sushi.

Upstairs next to the Eurostar platforms is a champagne bar, and at the front of the building is the Betjeman Arms pub. It lies near a statue of the poet, author and heritage campaigner, Sir John Betjeman photo, who was instrumental in ensuring the building wasn't destroyed in the 1960s.
