The way through from the new concourse to the mainline platforms
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.
The 'Unofficially Open' 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.
