King's Cross

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.

Today is September 1st. It's 11:00, and I'm not on the Hogwarts Express.


However, I did have the opportunity to visit the UK for work in March, and I stayed a couple of extra days to tool around London with a pal. After walking 7.5 miles from Victoria station to and fro and down to the Tower Bridge, we hopped on a train and went to King's Cross.

Please brace yourself. The photos I'm about to show you will stir the inner depths of your 11-year-old soul.

On our way!

Platform 9 and three-quarters, this way!  "I'm coming, Mrs. Weasley! I'm coming!"

And then.

Platforms 9 & 10

Seriously? I've said it before and I'll say it again.


I've seen photos all over the google-verse of this, which is allegedly at King's Cross.

There was construction when we were there, which may explain the situation. Still.

Oh, well. There's always next year, right?  And I've got my early entry into Pottermore, so there's that.

Happy Hogwarts Day.


  1. I actually have a picture of me at that platform 9 3/4!

    I'm sorry you didn't get one.
