King's Cross railway station,[2] also known as London King's Cross,[3] is a central London railway terminus opened in 1852. The station is on the northern edge of Central London, at the junction of the A501 Euston Road and York Way, in the Kings Cross district and within the London Borough of Camden on the border of the London Borough of Islington.

King's Cross is the southern terminus of the East Coast Main Line, one of the UK's major railway backbones. Some of its most important long-distance destinations are Leeds, Newcastle and Edinburgh. It also hosts outer-suburban services to Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire as well as a regional service to Peterborough, Cambridge and Kings Lynn.

Immediately adjacent to the west is St Pancras railway station, the London terminus for international Eurostar trains, high-speed trains to Kent via High Speed 1 and East Midlands Trains, as well as a major interchange for First Capital Connect services. The two stations are operationally completely separate, but from the passenger's point of view they may be regarded as a single complex for interchange purposes. They share King's Cross St. Pancras tube station on the London Underground network.
