If you don’t know what this category is about just go to the widget that says “Categories” and click to “Little but important details” and go down screan and you’ll se 2 posts, go to the first one and there is and explanation of what’s this category. By the way, the new post it’s gonna be about the King’s Cross Station. So enjoy:)

King’s Cross Station is considered one of the main train stations to serve London. Students of Hogwarts, take the scarlet steam engine named theB Hogwarts Express to obviously Hogwarts from Platform 9¾ on 1 September at 11 AM sharp. It also serves as a major intercity and commuter rail hub for Muggles going to North London or Yorkshire and the North East and Scotland. 🙂 I really prefer the services of King’s Cross Station for the magical trip from London to Hogwarts.

Locations (I really didn’t know all of this but I googled on the internet and I found this pretty interesting):

Platform 7½ :  offers a long-distance train, similar to the Muggle Orient Express, off to wizard-only villages in continental Europe. 🙂 (That’s the platform I didn’t know about, but is quiet interesting isn’t it?


In order for someone to get onto Platform 9¾, they must walk directly at the apparently solid barrier dividing platforms nine and ten. Mrs.  Molly Weasley advises that one should “do it at a bit of a run if you’re nervous.” It is not known exactly how Muggles do not, or cannot get onto the platform; however, it can be assumed that powerful magic 🙂 of some sort is employed in order to keep them ignorant of its existence. However, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows it was shown in Snape’s memories that Lily Evans’s family was present at the platform as she boarded it, which could mean that Muggles are able to enter the platform, if made specifically aware of its existence.

Harry Potter: “It looks like King’s Cross station. Except a lot cleaner and empty, and there are no trains as far as I can see.

Albus Dumbledore: “King’s Cross station! Good gracious, really?“— Harry and Dumbledore while in Limbo.
