We are on our way home from Paris and on our when we arrived at St Pancras International, we passed by the Kings Cross tube (underground) station. From here we caught our tube to Waterloo where we transfer to the overground train to Southampton.
If you're a Harry Potter fan this station would be familiar to you as this was mentioned in the mythology a couple of times.
It was used as the departure station for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardly students. The Hogwarts express departs from Platform 9¾ in September.
The Kings Cross is also the title of Chapter 35 in the Harry Potter final book, the Deathly Hollows. It was also used as the final setting of the Harry Potter series.
As a big HP fan, I love coming here and never miss a chance for a photo op with the trolley through the wall. The whole thing is enough to make any fan feel that they're on their way to Hogwarts =)
