Yes, the platform 9 and 3/4 is there! It's a nice photo shot if you have kids. The station looks very nice after the refurbishment for the Olympics

The train station is brilliant, it is huge and has around 11 platforms. Also has the 9 & 3/4 platform for harry potter fans. Plenty of cafe's upstairs and down to get refreshments whilst waiting for your trains.

We came to find the 'platform' with young children and we're pleased to find a 'photo opportunity' area with the attraction as on the photographs shown here. They will dress you in a scarf And take your photo but also allow you to take all the photos yourself as well free of charge - staff very friendly. Shop over priced... More

Even the Muggle police know where it is ( under the footbridge on the main concourse ) . It is just a photo opportunity but it's well done. There's an assistant with a number of house scarves who will hold the scarf end to create the correct look. Photos can be taken either on your own equipment (free) or by... More

Went here for the harry potter experience. longest line in the city, and very touristy. The station was great to explore and had a wonderful book shop right next to the long harry potter line. The station next door was also neat to see.

I haven't seen how the old kings cross used to look but the design of the station is so cool but the real reason I went was because of Platform 9 & 3/4, the harry potter reference to this station. I was worried about how I was to get to the platform without a ticket but never fear, it's before... More

I love the new Concourse at King's Cross station, it's a remarkable change from before. It's bright, airy and modern, and has a wide selection of restaurants to cater for everyone's tastes. There's two huge banks of Train Departures, so plenty of room for everyone to stand and wait for their platform announcement, However, the audio announcements need to be... More

When you go in, look up. I personally am fascinated by the design of the roof - the grid of thick tubes holding up the roofs is amazing. There is a good selection of restaurants - from the healthy Pret to the more exotic Benitos Hat, and you can get Cornish Pasties in a small shop on the main floor.... More

We came here for the Harry Potter Platform 9 3/4 experience but we had a look round while we were there. The station has been renovated and looks lovely and we found it easy to navigate.
