Platform 9 3/4 Gets Permanent Location at King’s Cross Station

The Platform 9 3/4 display at King’s Cross in London finally has a permanent location after being shuffled around for several years while the station underwent major renovations.

According to the Huffington Post, the popular pilgrimage site for Harry Potter fans – which features a sign for the platform and a trolly seemingly going through the wall – will now be located in the Western Departures Concourse. A map of the station, with Platform 9 3/4 clearly marked, can be seen here. The new concourse will be open for travelers (and Potter fans!) beginning March 19.

Avatar Imagexflitzyx says: I won't lie, if I ever got to visit I'd spend all my time trying to get through the barrier. :3Avatar Imagekatie01921 says: Oh cool, I will so have to look it up!Avatar Imagezaucwrkexun says: That's so cool. I love how people respect our love for HP and are prepared to put up with these things! :DAvatar Imageteamtonks says: Everytime I go through Kings Cross on my way home from uni and vice versa I like to salute Platform 9 3/4's..the beginning of my childhood :)Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: When I get to London someday, which I more def will, I am going to Platform 9 3/4, take tons of pictures and probably cry. =}Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Too bad that they couldn't find a way to sandwich it in between Platforms 9 and 10 somehow. At least they managed to site it in the general vicinity. But it rather looks from the map as if you would end up in a loo if you actually could get through the wall!Avatar ImageGene L. says: Now that they'll never take it down, I'll certainly get to see it. YEAH!Avatar ImageWulfricBrian says: I work nearby, so will check it out next week. In a way I'll be sorry to see it in a permanent location. It's more typical of the wizarding world for it to move around and appear in unexpected places, like a Hogwarts staircase.Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: I want to go there... If only I was in England...Avatar ImageMad But Happy says: Yes. Just Yes. XDAvatar ImageMoonlitFox says: That's cool! :DAvatar Imagekatelyner123 says: MAN!!!!

I was so tempted to find a member of staff and complain about this serious breech of the Statute of Secrecy!!Avatar ImageMagical Arts says: I hope I can see it when I am traveling to London in the summer holidays! But, the sign isen't on Kings Cross? .. :/ Avatar Imageroonwit says: Livi22-((ROAR!)): Actually it is just there to confuse the muggles.
