We will be leaving London around 9.30am to visit Paris for an overnight trip and will have two medium sized suitcases, plus our backpacks.

Is there a place in the Kings Cross area where we can store our suitcases, rather than take them all the way to Paris? We're travelling via Eurostar.

    I'll just add to the answers that: 1. there's sometimes a bit of a queue, so you want to factor that in. 2. Don't forget that you need to get to Eurostar check-in 30 minutes before departure time. All in all, you should probably arrive at St Pancras no later than 1 hour before departure.

  • The advice of @jcaron is spot on. There is often a mega queue for the St Pancras left luggage when I walk past it to get to the toilets (for which there is also a queue at least for the ladies). Allow lots of time. Please.

St Pancras station offers luggage storage.

Taken from Network Rail:

Left luggage

You can leave luggage at Excess Baggage Co in The Circle.

Monday to Saturday 6:00 – 22:00

Sunday 7:00 – 22:00

For more information call 020 8090 9923 or visit Excess Baggage.

You could also walk across the street to Kings Cross station and use their luggage facilities.

  • "You could also walk across the street to Kings Cross station and use their luggage facilities." they are operated by the same company, so I would be very surprised if there were any notable differences in price/service. Jul 5, 2018 at 14:21

The excess baggage company is 'very' expensive. And you can expect to pay £20 and up per item for overnight storage.

Another option is a company like stasher.com or bagbnb who broker storage at local hotels and business. They both have a couple of location just outside the station. I have used stasher once, and paid £4 for 18 hours. I was a bit nervous tbh. But all was ok and I used a small hotel just opposite kings cross. I did not leave anything valuable. Just clothing.

Not endorsing either service as I haven't used them enough to form a valid opinion.

  • An alternative depending on the exact circumstances of the OP is simply to ask the hotel they're staying at before the trip to keep the luggage for a couple of days. Most are used to keeping it only for a few hours, so they'd have to check if they accept to keep it overnight.

  • That's a good suggestion, however the hotel we are staying at before are quite far from the station and even further from where we are staying at after - it wouldn't be economical for us to go back there.

The Excess Baggage Company offer left luggage services at all the major London termini and at the airports. Prices start at around £7.50 for one item for a few hours. You can get a quote online and book space ahead.
