The Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 ¾

Visit the famous trolley

Have you ever wanted to have a go at running at the wall to get on to Platform 93/4, just like Harry Potter does in the film series? Well now you can, with our trolley photo opportunity. Have your photograph professionally taken with your chosen house scarf and wand and do your best running at the wall pose.

Our professional photographers can capture your photo for you, and you then have the option to buy your photographs in store. Packaged in a Harry Potter frame, there are a range of buying options for your photographs including bundles, and keyring and magnet sets. You are also welcome to take your own photos too!

Please note, visitors to the trolley who choose to purchase their photos must do so on the day of their visit, as images are not stored, but automatically deleted once they leave the store for data protection/GDPR reasons.

The trolley is situated just next to our store inside King's Cross station. No ticket is needed for your photo, but please be aware there is often a queue.

Our store and photographers hours are:
Monday - Saturday 8am - 10pm
Sunday 9am - 9pm

Please note at busy times the last entry to the photo queue is 9pm (8pm on Sunday). Sorry for any inconvenience.

The trolley is available during shop opening hours, with our friendly staff on hand to help assist with your photo.

The wall and Platform 9 3/4 sign without the trolley is also available from 6am - 8am and 10pm - 12pm for you to take your own photos without staff assistance.

Want to skip the queue?

If you don't want to queue, we have a solution for you; our VIP Photo Pass lanyard! This includes a Platform 9 3/4 lanyard, queue jump, and your own professional photo, all for just £15.
