King’s Cross Station, together with the adjacent St. Pancras Station and the Tube connection that serves them both, is part of a major transportation hub in Central London. Trains in and out of King’s Cross provide long-distance travel up and down eastern England through Newcastle and York and into Scotland. They also provide commuter service for London’s northern suburbs. Located at Euston Road and York Way, the Victorian-era station was designed by Lewis Cubitt and opened in 1852. Main features of the original construction include a 120-ft brick clock tower and two 70-ft high vaulted train sheds that now shelter Platforms 1 through 8. Platforms 9 through 11 are housed in a later (and less elaborate) addition built to accommodate commuters. King’s Cross takes its name from a short-lived and unpopular monument to King George IV. Urban myth also associates the site with Boudica, the warrior queen of ancient Britain, who many believed is buried near the present-day location of Platform 9 or 10. More recently, the station is notable for the fictional Platform 9¾, which services the Hogwarts Express in a series of popular children’s books by J.K. Rowling.
