lovelondonscenes – 83

On Friday just gone, I went up to have a proper look around the new Kings Cross development. It was impressive, but mostly pretty quiet – no surprise, I guess, on 2 January. What I liked best was the architecture of the station itself.

The roof inside the new concourse is spectacular.

The bit of the station that really matters!

Gateway to the North.  And, of course, location of Harry Potter’s famous platform 9 and 3/4. These days there’s a big queue of tourists having their photos taken with Griffyndor scarves by a bit of wall that’s been designated as the place.  Fair enough!

    Yeah, fantastic! The architecture in the big stations is awesome. Not just in London: you see it all over the country.
