Platform 9 3/4 Gets Permanent Location at King's Cross Station

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!!
Awesome!! replying to this: MAN!!!! I WISH I LIVED IN THE UK!!!! :( Harry Potter is so awesome that it affects things in the real world too- nice.

I’m glad to say that I DO live in the UK (lucky me!!)
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. :)
i live in the uk, and hope to visit there in the summer holidays when we go out for the day to london and would love to get a photo of me there at it. :-)
i was at kings cross one day a year ago near by and all. :)
