Kings Cross Thameslink station

Category: Train Stations

King’s Cross Thameslink station is a railway station in central London, which serves the Thameslink franchise. It is located on Pentonville Road, very near King’s Cross station.

The station occupies part of the original site of King’s Cross underground station built by the Metropolitan Railway. Its original street buildings are a little further west than the present Thameslink station frontage and, although in poor repair, may still be seen. The present Thameslink platforms on the City Widened Lines are separated only by a newer wall from the site of the Underground platforms, which may still be seen on the west side from Underground trains travelling between King’s Cross St. Pancras and Farringdon.
