Platform 9¾, the spot at King's Cross station where young witches and wizards catch the Hogwarts Express, used to be marked only by a sign (and perhaps some light staining where Muggles tried to run through the wall). But as of this weekend, a Harry Potter shop sits between Platforms Nine and Ten. The 9¾ shop lets Potter fans enjoy a small taste of Hogsmeade while they await their trains, perusing Hogwarts house gear and neatly stacked boxes of wands. Sadly, it isn't accompanied by a fire whisky bar.
You can see photos of the shop, which Warwick Davis, who played Professor Flitwick and Griphook the Goblin in the movies, helped open this weekend, at The Independent.
