Famous Signs - Platform 9 3/4

Updated: Feb 14, 2019

The Harry Potter movies are very popular with the Hilltop team, so popular that everyone has been sorted into the different houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Not a day goes by that Scott, our shop manager, reminds everyone that he is the only one that is apart of the Gryffindor house.

To get to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, you have to board the Hogwarts Express which is at Platform 9 3/4 at King's Cross Station in London. This "Muggle" railway station is one of the busiest in the city, and Platform 9 3/4 might be just as busy. The sign for the platform is so popular among fans like us that it was moved from its original place because of the amount of tourists it attracted stood in the way of everyday commuters. You can now find Platform 9 3/4 on a brick wall next to a Harry Potter themed gift shop. Who would have thought a simple wooden sign with painted letters could created a global attraction.
