Harry Potter arrives at Kings Cross

The Harry Potter shop is now open at Kings Cross, next to Watermark. The luggage trolley, now loaded with luggage and an owl cage is still there and attracts a perpetual queue of people keen to have their image captured as they push the trolley through the wall at platform 9 ¾.

The new shop is similarly popular.  Inside it has a feel of Ollivander’s Wand Shop about it.  Indeed, at the rear I found a number of apprentice wizards eagerly selecting their new wand.  For us Muggles, the prices seem a little steep, but it wasn’t deterring the youngsters.  Also on sale are jumpers in Hogwarts house colours, books, board games, stuffed rats, horcruxes (yes, really) and even robes.

The redeveloped Kings Cross is a lively, bright and airy station and this is a great new attraction for tourists and regulars alike.  This new shop makes a pleasing treat for the kids on the way home after a hard day’s sightseeing.
