Not For Muggles!

Platform 9 3/4 features if the Harry Potter series of novels and is located at Kings Cross railway station.

Kings Cross station is served by mainline trains from Scotland and the North East as well as the Home Counties. It is also next to St Pancras station which is served by trains from Kent, Home Counties, East Midlands and the Eurostar from Europe. There are also Tube services on the Hammersmith & City, Circle, Metropolitan, Northern, Victoria and Picadilly lines. Many buses also serve the area.

If you go during the day there is normally a MASSIVE queue of people waiting to get there picture taken as they prepare to go through the wall onto platform 9 3/4 and journey to Hogwarts School of Magic.

There is a gift shop which is normally open when there is no lockdown where you can get all sorts of Hogwarts memorabilia.

We took a Harry Potter Walking Tour around London that ended here at Kings Cross Station. The tour was bad, but that's another story. The Platform 9 3/4 attraction is a photo op and Harry Potter merchandise store. We waited 90 minutes for the photo. If you like HP and have some spare time it can be a fun little thing to do.

A must see place for HP fan!

The trolley and the shop next to it are such a brilliant idea! Although the real filming location is between platform 4 and 5, you still have to see this! The shop is a bit pricey, but taking a picture is free, unless you want a professional one, which you can buy from the shop. The queue is minimal now due to pandemic and staff do their best to navigate and give guidance..

Nicely and kindly done
Aug 2019
We could not resist dropping by the Harry Potter shop, especially as we were staying near King's Cross. On the way in, we saw this place. A luggage cart disappearing into the wall under a sign saying "Platform 9 and 3 quarters." It is quite near Platform 9, too.

That is, when we finally saw it, we discovered what it was. At first, though, it was hidden by crowds and coeds of Potter fans. Very orderly. A queuing system almost worthy of the Disney parks. People at the front of the show had a chance to pose with the cart while a professional photographer took their picture, plus anyone else who wanted to could take a picture. The professional ones were in sale inside, but no real pressure to buy.

We didn't queue up. We didn't pose. But we did enjoy the fun and kindness in the air.

Must visit place for a Potter fan! :)

Here you can do some Harry Potter shopping in the fan store, you can also "run" through the brick wall and have your picture taken at the same time. The picture costs around 10 pounds, if you want to buy the one that the professional photographer takes of you. The store is really nice, the staff is fantastic and the place is just something you should see if you're a fan. :)

Gone to catch my train to Hogwarts
Jan 2020
The whole experience really makes you feel like you about to go and catch the train to Hogwarts. And the fact that when they take your picture. They let you choose your own wand and they make your scarf float in the air (magic lol). The whole atmosphere is magical.

Prepare to be stuck in an hour queue
Jan 2020 • Friends
Too many people just go there for the aim of taking a picture and get that Harry porter feeling so f you are planning to go there, just know that there are a million others like you doing the same thing so make sure you have lots of time. You may surprisingly spend an hour just to get a proper photo with the Harry Porter attire. Can be quite boring to some people though, it’s just a boring mark on a wall that says it.
