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.

It's a cute store that capitalizes on Platform 9 ¾. Right next to where you get your picture taken, this place is short and filled to the brim with tourist-y stuff, so you can find something for any Hogwarts fan, whether they like Fantastic Beasts, or are a self-proclaimed Hufflepuff or Gryffindor. There's a lot of merch to choose from, priced accordingly to what you would expect it would cost... more

The most Harry Potter stuff that I have seen in one spot! Great selection.

Finally loaded up on my Slytherin merchandise and took some pretty cool pictures.

Was super shocked at how reasonably priced the products were. more

My favorite piece was a key chain that said London and Platform 9 3/4, Kings Cross Station. They... more

It's getting a 5 star review because it's Harry Potter. Store has every and anything you'd want, ALL the horcruxes. There's a luggage cart halfway in the side of the wall out side for pictures. Just come here I can't even put into words how much I enjoyed just walking into the store more
