Harry Potter shop to open on platform 9¾

Wand-er through the magical store from Saturday

London's King’s Cross station is due to get its own little slice of Hogsmeade this weekend when a Harry Potter Shop selling official merchandise opens.

‘The Harry Potter Shop’ is situated near the platform 9 ¾ trolley at the newly refurbished King’s Cross station and will open on Saturday 15 December.

Muggles can buy wands, robes, uniforms, golden platform 9 ¾ tickets and other Potter collectibles.

The shop’s wooden floor and panelled walls have taken a chapter out of Jack Wills' book and hark back to traditional Hogwarts school days.

Crack out the Butter Beer.
