The Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9¾

Recreate the Hogwarts Express scene on Platform 9¾ at King's Cross Station in Central London, where Harry's big wizard adventure began.

Step inside the magical shop that has been designed to look like Ollivander's wand shop from JK Rowling's books. Find all the Hogwarts, Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff merchandise a true fan could ever want.

As well as collectibles such wands, time turners and Triwizard cups, the shop also stocks Hogwarts school jumpers in the house colours, bedding and blankets featuring your favourite school house, fancy dress costumes of all your favourite characters, and full sets of robes. Look out for the eighth story in the Harry Potter canon: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts I & II.

There are also smaller items like board games, key rings, mugs, mobile phone cases, soft toys and action figures, suitable for more modest budgets.

Harry, Hermione, Ron and even Voldemort can all be found somewhere in the store as well, so keep focused.

Harry Potter would stand a better chance of running head on through a brick wall than through the crowds of people inside this nightmare of a shop in London's King's Cross Station.

Yes, a wonderful photo op waits just outside for those patient enough to stand in line & mimic his run through Platform 9 3/4, but if you've already done that & your mission is instead to shop until you drop, you...more

Excellent location and store. In King's Cross Station. To the right of the store is Platform 9 3/4, where you can get your picture taken or have someone take a picture using your phone. The store photographer takes a few pics in various poses. Then you go to the store where you can decide if you want to purchase any of the photos that the photographer took. I chose to get 2.

We hopped back on the subway and took it to the King's Cross Station to visit the Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 3/4. This was really just a small shop with a photo opportunity for a fee.more

Nonetheless, totally a fun visit for fans of any age.more

If I'm being honest, I was disappointed by the Harry Potter shop.

First of all, I've seen in pictures that it used to be very different and I prefer the pictures version. It now looks like a cheap disney store (but i love disney's stores). No magic, just a sad display of merchandising to capitalise on some of the best books and movies out there.

Talking about the merchandising. Come on,...more
