Going back home through the St. Pancras International railway station (>>>) I was thinking of visiting the King’s Cross station located nearby to see where Platform 9 3/4 might be. Behind my back I heard a young lady behind me whispering to her mother ‘Platform 9 3/4’. It is not only me, I thought.
Later that afternoon, I spent quite an enjoyable time in a small boutique that resembled a charming corner of the Harry Potter world. The shop carried a carefully curated selection of magical-themed products, which added a touch of whimsy to the experience.
If you are a Harry Potter fan, you can (for a fee) make a photo at a staged Platform 9 3/4 wearing a Hogwarts’ scarf of your choosing. The boutique and the platform 9 3/4 wall are located on the right-hand side close to the platform 9 to 11 entrance from the main hall. By the way, this is not me on the picture, but it was amazing to see all the kids having fun at the wall.
I visited this place yet again in July 2016. For new photos follow the link >>>.
