Kings Cross and the Platform 9 ¾

Friday 20 April 2012

We are on our way home from Paris and on our when we arrived at St Pancras International, we passed by the Kings Cross tube (underground) station. From here we caught our tube to Waterloo where we transfer to the overground train to Southampton.

If you're a Harry Potter fan this station would be familiar to you as this was mentioned in the mythology a couple of times. 
It was used as the departure station for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardly students.  The Hogwarts express departs from Platform 9¾ in September. 
The Kings Cross is also the title of Chapter 35 in the Harry Potter final book, the Deathly Hollows. It was also used as the final setting of the Harry Potter series.

As a big HP fan, I love coming here and never miss a chance for a photo op with the trolley through the wall. The whole thing is enough to make any fan feel that they're on their way to Hogwarts =)


  1. Sa wakas nakita ko din ang picture, Poj pakiss nga, ang cute cute mo.  Ang ganda ng pciture sis, nakaka-inlove, fan din ako ng HP.  Ang cute talaga ni Poj, someday he'll appreciate that picture pag napanood na niya nag Harry Potter. Ngayon pa lang ang saya na niya tignan. All smiles. Sarap maging bata, lalo na maing batang nakatira sa UK. 

    Hope you got home safe. Relax and rest for a while.

    Ive got the books and would buy the movie set din and sana nga ay magustuhan nya. We hope to visit the HP studio tour soon, kakabukas pa lang nya nung March so we'll probably visit when we think it's a bit quiet. =)
