Review: Virgin Train First Class Lounge King’s Cross
We were able to snag 3 tickets from London to Edinburgh, Scotland for about $90 each. This was $50-60 cheaper than one-way tickets from LHR to EDI so we thought we’d give it a go. As a part of booking First Class tickets we were granted access to the First Class lounge at King’s Cross. Here’s my Review: Virgin Train First Class Lounge King’s Cross.

There is a Harry Potter Platform 9 3/4 sign. It’s probably the easiest thing to see because there was a HUGE line of people waiting to take photos with it. If you’re facing “platform 9 3/4” it’s about 50 feet to the right.
Once you’re through the entrance head upstairs. You’ll see a cooler. Check in is to the right.
It’s a nice refuge from the hustle and bustle of the train station.
It was pretty crowded when we arrived, but we were still able to find seating. There’s also free WIFI and charging areas with power.
If you’re seated by the window you’ll have a nice view overlooking the trains
There’s coffee, juice, tea, soda, water, and little nibbles. If you want anything above and beyond that, you’ll have to check the fridge that you saw when you came in. That fridge holds wine, beer, etc.
The lounge is a great place to spend an hour, have a coffee, snack, and check your email. It has quite a few different seating options and has that fresh and modern “Virgin” feel that feels akin to Virgin airline products. If you’re thinking of taking a train I would HIGHLY recommend looking at Virgin and especially the deals for First Class. I think we paid a premium of roughly $40 per person to enjoy a lounge, reserved seating, and free food and drink while onboard. The lounge probably saved us $10 a person, as we were in there for about 90 minutes, and all of us had a snack each, a couple bottles of water, and coffees.
