STEP ONTO PLATFORM 9¾
In March 2015, we unveilled a 20,000ft² expansion, including the original Hogwarts Express steam engine and a recreation of Platform 9¾. The new, permanent section offers a glimpse into how some of the films’ most iconic scenes were created as well as giving you the chance to climb aboard the train’s carriage and to pose with a luggage trolley as it disappears through the platform wall.
Every inch of the platform’s glass roof, yellow brick walls and luggage racks, designed by Production Designer Stuart Craig, has been painstakingly reassembled by a team led by Construction Manager Paul Hayes and dressed by Set Decorator Rosie Goodwin. Special Effects Supervisor John Richardson has rigged the locomotive with special effects steam.
