The Platform 9 3/4 display at King's Cross in London finally has a permanent location after being shuffled around for several years while the station underwent major renovations.

According to the Huffington Post, the popular pilgrimage site for Harry Potter fans - which features a sign for the platform and a trolly seemingly going through the wall - will now be located in the Western Departures Concourse. A map of the station, with Platform 9 3/4 clearly marked, can be seen here. The new concourse will be open for travelers (and Potter fans!) beginning March 19.

I won’t lie, if I ever got to visit I’d spend all my time trying to get through the barrier. :3

When I get to London someday, which I more def will, I am going to Platform 9 3/4, take tons of pictures and probably cry. =}

Too bad that they couldn’t find a way to sandwich it in between Platforms 9 and 10 somehow. At least they managed to site it in the general vicinity. But it rather looks from the map as if you would end up in a loo if you actually could get through the wall!

Now that they’ll never take it down, I’ll certainly get to see it. YEAH!

I work nearby, so will check it out next week.
In a way I’ll be sorry to see it in a permanent location. It’s more typical of the wizarding world for it to move around and appear in unexpected places, like a Hogwarts staircase.

Guess That Book

Harry couldn't believe it -- he was free. he rolled down the window, the night air whipping his hair, and looked back at the shrinking rooftops of Privet Drive. Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and Dudley were all hanging, dumbstruck, out of Harry's window.[br
