Kings Cross Station
King's Cross railway station is a central London railway terminus opened in 1852.
King's Cross is the southern terminus of the East Coast Main Line, one of the UK's major railway backbones. Some of its most important long-distance destinations are Leeds, Newcastle and Edinburgh. It also hosts outer-suburban services to Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire as well as a regional service to Peterborough, Cambridge and Kings Lynn.

King's Cross new concourse
The new concourse at King's Cross railway station has been created from a rather nondescript space at the back of the Great Northern Hotel. It will allow the demolition of the existing concourse on the Euston Road frontage - itself a replacement of a hotch-potch of older buildings - so that the full sweep of Thomas Cubitt's 1840 frontage can be seen to full advantage after well over a century of partial concealment.
My views were taken on Sunday 18 March 2012, the day before the official opening, although in practice it was opened to the public on the Sunday.
