Kings Cross SU Bar
The Baker Street tube station has walls painted with excerpts from the Sherlock Holmes novels and is, in itself, a place well worth a visit. Take the tube now to King's Cross. This is again a place which needs no introduction. The crowds at Platform 9 3/4 are massive and you will find queues waiting to get a photo with the trolley half mashed into the wall. Instead, walk into the Harry Potter store, and marvel at the Firebolt and the Elder Wand, indulge your inner nerd and splurge on Gryffindor jumpers. Then take the escalators to the food court upstairs, grab a bite and look over the magical place where The Boy who Lived, once took the train to Hogwarts.
Only because I went in the wrong season, when there was a trance festival going on and the month was peak summer June :(, I got the only reasonable place of stay at slightly expensive, but peak timing justified rate of 900 rupees per day. The room was good and spacious, with a good big bathroom and a very powerful geyser. Though initially skeptical, I actually chose the best place to stay in Kasol as through my room I could hear the flowing of the river sound. For the peace seekers among us, it gives a very natural night sleep. The sound of the river at night is almost hypnotizing, like mother nature grasping you to it's glory and the quiet. Ask for the room with balcony and you would see all your tensions flow away with the river in the endless starry night.
