Platform 9 3/4 Tours

star-4
79 Reviews
Platform 9 3/4
Fans of Harry Potter will be familiar with Platform 9 3/4. The fictional platform is located at the very real King's Cross train station in London, between platforms 9 and 10, and is where the Hogwarts Express can be boarded—by running directly at what appears to be a solid wall barrier.

The Basics
Platform 9 3/4 is, of course, fictional, but that hasn’t stopped its setting from becoming a tourist attraction. Due to logistics, the filming of Platform 9 3/4 actually took place between platforms 4 and 5. But so many people came to see Platform 9 3/4 that eventually half of a luggage cart was permanently installed to look like it is going through the archway, and a Platform 9 3/4 sign was put up in honor of J.K. Rowling's books.

You can visit Platform 9 3/4 independently; it’s located outside of the station’s ticketed area, so there’s no need to purchase a train ticket. Visits to Platform 9 3/4 are also included on the many different Harry Potter–themed tours of London. Options include touring book and film locations on foot, by bus, in a black taxi, or in a classic British car.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Platform 9 3/4 is a must-visit for Harry Potter fans.
  • Visiting the site is free of charge.
  • As this is a busy train station, keep an eye on your belongings.
  • Expect to have to wait in line to have your photo taken.

How to Get There
King’s Cross Station is in the center of London and on many tube, train, and bus routes. Upon arrival at the station, follow the sign to Platforms 9 to 11, walk to the right of the Disabled Meeting Point sign and past some cash machines, and you will see the sign on the right, directly underneath a footbridge.

When to Get There
Platform 9 3/4 is accessible anytime during the station’s opening hours, from 5am until just after 1am every day. To avoid the biggest crowds, get there early in the morning and avoid visiting on weekends or school holidays.
 
Harry Potter Shop
Warwick Davis (who played Professor Flitwick and Griphook in the Harry Potter movies) opened the Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 3/4. It is located beside the sign and packed full of gifts and memorabilia. The shop offers (paid) professional photo services, including props such as wands and scarves.
Address: Kings Cross Station, London, United Kingdom N1C 4AP, England
