What better way to recuperate after unsuccessfully attempting to run through the barrier separating platforms 9 and 10 than stock up on Harry Potter merchandise?
Platform 9¾, the spot at King’s Cross station where young witches and wizards catch the Hogwarts Express, used to be marked only by a sign (and perhaps some light staining where Muggles tried to run through the wall). But as of this weekend, a Harry Pottershop sits between Platforms Nine and Ten. The 9¾ shop lets Potter fans enjoy a small taste of Hogsmeade while they await their trains, perusing Hogwarts house gear and neatly stacked boxes of wands. Sadly, it isn’t accompanied by a fire whisky bar.
Warwick Davis, who plays Professor Flitwick, assisted in the grand opening of the store.
