  • Be prepared to have people in your way and up close. This shop has amazing artifacts and treasures from the world of Harry Potter, and some great prices, but it is a small shop and expect it to be bus...  more »
  • This place is a must to visit for Harry Potter fans. The place is really crowded due to popularity and they have a lot of merchandise to offer fans. The staff is really friendly and helpful.  more »

  • The staff is super friendly and absolutely wonderful! The store has very good prices for official Harry Potter merchandise. I know people are saying expensive, but the merchandise here is way more affordable than the Harry Potter tour and theme parks. Plus they have many exclusives that the parks and tour don't! I would recommend going to the Platform picture line later in the evening. My sister and I first tried going during the afternoon and the line was very long. We came back later at night and the line was much shorter. It is well worth the wait! If you are a true Harry Potter fan, this is a must visit and the picture something you have to do!
  • One of the best small Harry Potter experiences I have ever have, even though it is only a shop. The staff stands as a big part of the experience as they are as nerdy as every hardcore fan, extremely friendly and as enthusiastic as they can get. The trolley photo comes out amazing and the photographers make sure of, repeating if needed in case it doesn't come out that good at first. The original stock is very diverse and although it is small it includes most of what you would find in major Harry Potter stores. It does not come cheap as it is expected from such a big brand but you will find some material with an accessible price. This is, without any doubt, a must stop for any Potterhead in London as it is a repeatable and unforgettable experience.
  • Located inside Kings Cross Station next door to the Little Waitrose and Virgins First Class Club Lounge. Well worth a visit. Don't be put off by the queue it moves quickly and is entertaining as it does. We queued 20 minutes but it felt no more than 10! In addition to being able to take your own photographs there is a professional team of both a photographer and prop helper capture the moment you go for the platform for Hogwarts. Professional photographs are available to buy and perhaps a little pricey. The only exit after the photo opportunity is through the souvenir shop which is laden with many goodies...check out the wand section and see which wand chooses you!! Shop well staffed to enable quick help when needed and swift purchase transactions so you don't miss your train.
  • Very good however also very busy. If you're going try to when it's off peak - it will still be busy though. Definitely worth going though Platform 9 3/4 is the photo opportunity obviously and the shop is incredible too. Well worth a visit
  • Photos were good though you did have to be quite quick. Shop had a lot of good merchandise. Only issue and reason for the two star is. While we queued for about an hour and a half a Musical.ly child star and her family (about 6+ total) came out of the shop (this is the exit for people taking photos thus skipping the whole queue) and spent a lot longer then everyone one else taking photos. Dare I say it getting special treatment.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
