Euston Bus Station serves the Euston area of the Camden, London, England. The station is owned and maintained by Transport for London

The station is situated next to Euston Station and by the Euston Square gardens. It was opened in 1979, to a design by Richard Seifert - famously responsible for Centre Point and the NatWest Tower.

There are five stands at the bus station and the main operators at the bus station include Tower Transit, Arriva London, Metroline, London United and Go-Ahead London

There are usually two entrances that serve buses both entering and leaving the Bus Station, one entrance is located along Eversholt Street just at the start of Grafton Place in front. Bus routes that terminate such as 18, 68, 253 and 476 usually pass through here and continue to their designated stands, routes 59 and 91 which continue to King's Cross pass the same way but then turn on the roundabout and exit at the same point. Strangely, route 59 towards Holborn also passes through the Bus Station whereas route 91 turns left directly from Euston Road onto Upper Woburn Place.

The Second entrance is located between Euston Square Gardens along Euston Road, it serves as a starting point for route 18 with Bus Stop (F) closely by. Night Bus Routes N5, N20 and N253 from Camden Town also stop and pass at this point as they head towards Warren Street. Bus Routes 10, 30, 73, 205 and 390 heading towards King's Cross pass here and exit to Grafton Place, buses on these routes heading towards Warren Street usually do not pass through the Bus Station but stop nearby along Euston Road.
