The new Kings Cross station: may the concourse be with you

Posted at 4:30 pm, March 14, 2012 in Hotels & Travel, News, Photos of London

Kings Cross, long considered one of London’s less glamorous rail termini, has been getting a makeover recently. Original brick facades have been restored and a glass footbridge installed, but the main event is the new western concourse with its enormous, latticed roof.  Take a look at these images of the Cross’s new look below (including a map that made us giggle) or see it for yourself from Monday March 19, when it opens to the public.
