The lack of daylight on the platforms compares unfavourably with the glazed trainshed roofs of traditional Victorian railway stations, but the use of the space above as a parcels depot[18] released the maximum space at ground level for platforms and passenger facilities.

Euston is the gateway to Ireland via Holyhead and ferry to Dublin Port where the previous route was replaced in September 2014 to Dún Laoghaire, for Dublin. Until the 1960s the station was a terminus of the most-frequented London to Belfast route, via Carlisle, the former Castle Douglas and Dumfries Railway and the Portpatrick Railway to Stranraer which was replaced by the longer Glasgow South Western Line via Ayr.

There is a bus station directly in front of the station for bus services to many parts of London.

If High Speed 2 goes ahead, Transport for London (TfL) plans to change the safeguarded route for the proposed Chelsea–Hackney line to include Euston between Tottenham Court Road and King's Cross St Pancras.[47] As part of the rebuilding work for High Speed 2, it is proposed to integrate Euston and Euston Square into a single tube station.[40]

These are located adjacent to the main public toilets, by the entrance to platforms 1-3.

As traffic grew, the station required further expansion. Two platforms were added in the 1870s with new service roads and entrances, and four in the 1890s, bringing the total to 15.[5] The growth of the platforms took place as follows:

In July 2014 a statue of Matthew Flinders, who circumnavigated the globe and charted Australia, was unveiled; it is thought that his grave lies under platform 15 at the station.[32]

To relieve pressure on Euston during and after rebuilding for High Speed 2, HS2 Ltd has proposed the diversion to Old Oak Common (for Crossrail) of eight London Midland trains per hour originating/terminating between Tring and Milton Keynes Central (inclusive).[43]

Network Rail is the operator of this station.

Until 1844 trains were pulled up the incline to Camden Town by cables because the L&BR's Act of Parliament prohibited the use of locomotives in the Euston area; this is said to have been in response to concerns of local residents about noise and smoke from locomotives toiling up the incline.[11]

Euston station first opened in 1837 as the London end of the London to Birmingham Railway. The original building was demolished and replaced in the 1960s, in what many considered a travesty of modern planning over classic architecture, including the demolition of the famous Euston Arch.
