Euston station is in the North of London City Centre just 10 minutes walk from Kings Cross one of the busiest (if not the busiest) of tube & mainline stations in London.
Euston Station is well connected with trains on the Virgin West Coast route from Scotland, Manchester & Midlands/Wales to London upto every 20 minutes everyday. Other services from Euston are ran by London Midland with services to well the Midlands including Rugby, Milton Keynes, Coventry & Neighbouring towns around them. These tend to be slower taking approximately two hours from the Midlands to London, where as Virgin trains stop at only major stations & from Midlands take around one hour. Other services are ran by London Overground which runs trains frequently across London centre & Scotrail who run sleeper services overnight to/from Scotland.
The station is easilly accessable via local bus routes from across London, it's also connected to the Euston Underground station which is below the mainline station & can be accessed directly by the Northern & Victoria lines and is right by Kings Cross which is served by Northern, Circle, Victoria, Hammersmith & City, Picadilly and Metropolitan lines.
The station is wide & open, as you enter, through various entry points your greeted by the main concourse. Here you'll find an information point to get train times & platform information, you have large departure & arrival LED boards which you'd have to be blind not to see, they are large & very easy to read & see. They detail the next 12 or so trains, their platforms & calling points. It also has 1 board with arrivals on for anyone who is meeting passengers off trains. On the main platform by the main escalators to the Underground you'll find a London Travel Information Office, here you can get information about all the Transport For London buses, trains, tube lines, trams & routes along with local information on attractions you might like to see if your visiting. As you go round you'll also find plenty of eating outlets that are in all major train stations like Burger King, Pret-a-manger, Costa Coffee, WHSmiths, Upper Crust & Millies Cookies to name just a few. For more train information, tickets, reservations & help you also have a large airy ticket office operated by the stations main operator, Virgin Trains. Here you'll find tons of ticket machines to buy tickets for same day travel or collect pre-paid tickets you may of bought online or over the telephone, if you have a reservation to make for future travel or want help, then theres plenty of windows/counters available too.
I've used Euston quite a few times now and never had any trouble there, station is bright & airy, has plenty of eating/shopping outlets & although I have never had to use the travel centre myself (I usually buy online & collect elsewhere as I am not from the area), I have been in to pick up a timetable & staff seemed nice & friendly from what I heard.
Summary: Great, never had any problems
