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.

They have put a sign up that says ‘Platform 9 3/4’, and there are arrows for it everywhere, now all the Muggles can see it!! I was so tempted to find a member of staff and complain about this serious breech of the Statute of Secrecy!!

Livi22-((ROAR!)): Actually it is just there to confuse the muggles. The real entrance to Platform 9 3/4 is somewhere else!

Cool idea, but even when I expanded the window, the print was so small I couldn’t find the location for [b]anything[/b] clearly marked.

YES! Someday, when I grow up, I’m going to go to England at like August 31 and camp out there until the next morning, see how many people try to run into the wall. :)
