    Here's How To Win At King's Cross Station And Not Be Taken For A Fool

    Since the redesign at King's Cross, I've managed to waste countless days of my life wandering around long sections of the station's corridors completely needlessly. However, I feel I have now cracked the system, and here's how it works.

    My aim when it comes to King's Cross: Avoid this ENDLESS corridor of walking.

    You know the one. It goes on and on and on and on and on.

    This corridor is designed to relieve congestion, but it's so so long.

    If you're changing tube lines, the secret is finding the old ticket hall.

    All the lines are here: the Northern, Piccadilly, Victoria, Metropolitan, Circle, and Hammersmith & City Lines.

    The problem is that all the signs point you in the wrong direction.

    Do not – do not – take this entrance. You will end up in a never-ending corridor vortex. Honestly, you'll be lost for days.

    This is the right way. THIS WAY.

    If you follow this sign and head right, you end up in the never-ending corridor vortex.

    The old ticket hall, I tell you!

    How do you find the old ticket hall? Simple.

    They're the only honest signs.

    Otherwise, you'll end up doing this:

    What about the closed escalators that take you to the Northern line?

    Brendan Miller

    Good point. Just take the lift (obviously giving priority to prams and wheelchair users).

    The escalators reopen in July 2015 but in the meantime this is another option.
