In the wizarding world, Harry and his friends get to the platform by dashing through a brick wall between platforms 9 and 10, which is shot at the arched wall between platforms 4 and 5 at the real King’s Cross. Meanwhile the real platforms 9 and 10 are separated by tracks, but you can find a platform 9¾ on the wall in the station concourse. Look out for a luggage trolley embedded in the wall, and make believe that you are off to start your magical school journey. The trolley is accessible at all hours, and you don’t have to pay to take your own photographs. You can have a professional photograph taken with a scarf in your house colours, which is then available for you to view and purchase inside the Harry Potter shop next door. The professional photographer is on hand between 9am and 9pm daily. Queues for the trolley can get busy during school holidays and festive periods – visit early to make sure you’re one of the first in line!
