King's Cross Station first opened in 1852, with the Great Northern Hotel opening just a few years later.
Since then, the station has seen many refurbishments - in March 2012, a new concourse covered by a 1,700 tonne steel and glass dome opened as phase 1 of a new redevelopment of the station. This project included renovating the Grade I listed building to the highest possible standard and connects the station to the Great Northern Hotel.
The current station mixes renovated industrial Victorian architecture with modern and contemporary styles. Features include platforms, concourses, departure boards, retail, high-level walkways and balconies.
A new public area, King's Cross Square which faces Euston Road was owned by Network Rail, was opened in 2014 and hosts a weekly market Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
