There is actually a surprising lack of off-street car parks around King’s Cross station considering its profile as a major Central London station. Neighbouring St. Pancras International car park (Pancras Road, London, N1C 4QP) operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and offers a very convenient place to park for King’s Cross. However, the fares at this car park are very pricey, so it may be worth considering parking a little further afield.
Handyside car park (3 Canal Reach, London, N1C 4BA) is one such option around a 10 minute walk from the station but this too is quite a costly option – albeit marginally cheaper than St. Pancras’s. This car park is open from 8am-10pm every day of the week.
JustPark offers a range of reservable off-street parking spaces nearby – in both council and commercially-run car parks, as well as at hotels, offices and on private driveways. You can browse these options and book a guaranteed space via our website or app.
