DESCRIBE ONLINE

Overview

This entrance is open Monday to Friday, 07:00 to 20:00.

This used to be the entrance/exit to the King's Cross Thameslink Station, which is now replaced by the First Capital Connect section of St Pancras Station.

Although there are ticket machines at this entrance, there's no sales window, however, staff will assist as necessary.

This exit/entrance is on the south side of Pentonville Road, between King's cross Bridge, to the west and King's Cross Road, to the east. There are four pillars on the south side of the pavement, with two cash machines between the west two and the automatic doors between the middle pair of pillars. See our Routes to the Sense Offices for details.
