  •  Guest – “We are arriving on the virgin train from newcastle around 15h51. How so we get to the underground to board to travel to paddington station?”
  • Admin – “If you arrive into the kings cross ticket hall then just look for the underground signs, go through the ticket barrier, then you can either get one lift or one flight of stairs down to the platforms. Look out for the signs which say "Hammersmith and city westbound" -- that's the platform you need (or the Circle line westbound, which also goes to paddington)”
