About King’s Cross

Also known as London King’s Cross, this passenger train terminus is located in the City of King’s Cross. This is in the Borough of Camden on the outside border of Central London. As part of the London Station Group, it is one of the busiest railways in the United Kingdom and was first opened in 1852. King’s Cross Railway handles just over 35 million passengers per year and is the largest station in England.

Although the station got a bit rundown in the late 20th century, it was built back up with a restored roof that visitors say looks like an upside-down waterfall. It is actually made with over 2,000 glass roof panels shaped like diamonds. A new departures concourse and many other unique and artistic additions were made at the same time. And you won’t have to worry about food because they have more than a dozen eateries as well as six retail stores that sell snacks and other items. 

London is the largest city in both the UK and England and the capital of England. Located on the River Thames, the city is an amazing place to visit and has become one of the top travel spots in the world. In fact, it has won several awards for being the most visited, desirable, and friendly. It is also the first city to host the Summer Olympic Games three times. 

Fun Fact: King’s Cross Railway Station became quite popular when Harry Potter movies and books used the station as the base of Hogwarts Express at the fictional Platform 9¾.

Luggage Storage Options near King’s Cross

  • The British Museum: How many museums do you know of that have mummies as well as a gift shop and café? Well, this one does, and it is less than two miles from the King’s Cross Railway Station on Great Russell Street. Be sure to drop off your bags with Bounce first, though, because they won’t let you bring them inside the museum. 

  • The London Eye: You cannot go to London without riding on the London Eye. Only three miles away, this is more than just a Ferris wheel. These are more like glass escape pods on a huge wheel. Each pod is air-conditioned, comfortable, and holds up to 25 people. And they take you up 442 feet in the air on a ride that lasts 30 minutes. What a fantastic way to see the city. Be sure to get your camera out of your suitcase before dropping it off at one of the Bounce locations nearby.

  • ZSL London Zoo: Less than two miles from the station in Regent’s Park, the ZSL London Zoo is the perfect place to hang out for two or three hours. With over 300 mammals, 400 birds, and more than 100 reptiles and amphibians, you can stay busy all day watching them enjoy their habitats. Luggage is not allowed, so be sure to find a nearby Bounce affiliate to keep it for you. 

  • The Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace: After dropping off your bags with a Bounce partner, head over to the Royal Mews about four miles away from the station on Buckingham Palace Road. You can see a gold state coach from 1762, take a seat on a royal carriage, and see the horses that pull them around. Be sure to get a selfie in front of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee coach, which is the newest coach at the Mews. 

  • Westminster Abbey: Another must-see is Westminster Abbey, which is about three miles to the south of the station. You can get a guided tour or explore on your own at this ancient royal church. It has been the church of coronation since the year 1066 and is one of the most important Gothic buildings in the country.  

  • Hyde Park: One of the most famous parks in the city, Hyde Park is the home of the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain as well as 18 other memorials and fountains. Visit the rose garden or walk along the banks of the Serpentine River. Go to the LookOut, which is an eco-friendly building with exhibits, activities, and guides to give you some info about flora and fauna of the area. Make sure you stop by one of the Bounce partners along the way, so you don’t have to lug your bags around. 

  • Coal Drops Yard: Are you in need of some retail therapy? Drop off your luggage at a Bounce location and head over to the Coal Drops Yard on Stable Street. It is less than a mile from King’s Cross Station, and you will be in awe at this stunning shopping plaza. What used to be two Victorian coal drops sheds were turned into an architectural work of art. With a mixture of local artisans and posh names like Miller Harris and APC, you will find all sorts of goodies here.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
