Been wanting to do this for years! I think it has moved from the original place/platform as now there is a shop, conveniently! You can have a profesional photo done or take your own. Great fun and the shop is good for fans of you...More

Absolutely love the merchandise on sale. Bought my niece a lot of presents for Christmas here. However, the store is far too small and cramped for the size of crowd it attracts. For such a super size mega brand like Harry Potter, it needs a...More

We got into the cattle herding line, thinking it would take forever. They were very quick to get people through and do not hesitate to let you take your own photos as well. Then they shuffle you into the store.

We arrived at the platform 20 minutes before our train was due and unfortunately had not factored in the huge queue that would greet us! We queued in it for about 10 minutes and hadn't even reached the start of the barrier. My little girl...More

We were hesitant, but joined in the line. The pictures are right on - the line fills up the whole area, but even then, the wait is less than half an hour even though it looks so long. It moves fast and the photographer allows...More

I've tried to go four times over the last two or three years, at different times of the year & different times of the day, & there's always a 2-3 hour lineup to take your picture with the trolley. The shop is good though. Crowded...More

We stood in a queue of about 20 people midmorning of a week day and the queue moved quite quickly. There is one person who ties a scarf around your neck as your photograph gets taken. There is no obligation to pay for the photograph....More
