The Hogwarts Express may not exist, but J.K. Rowling fans can still have a photo op at King’s Cross; be prepared to wait. Afterwards, spend your galleons on souvenir wands, toys, and Gryffindor gear.

Very popular and crowded store. Photographer was present to take your picture about to entering the wall. Note that the store is located in the train station at King's Cross not the Underground part of the station.
