In and Around London:
Kings Cross Station
Touring a film set is exciting but sometimes getting that access behind-the-scenes, where camera angles and clever editing perform miracles, can rub a little of the Harry Potter magic away. Then it’s time to find the places where your favourite film overlaps with the world you actually live in.
The best place for Harry Potter fans to stand in the shoes of “the boy who lived” is in London, at King’s Cross Station. Here you can see where students boarded the Hogwarts Express in all eight films.
While the scenes were actually filmed on platforms 4 and 5, you’ll soon find platform 9 ¾, complete with a disappearing luggage cart.
