King's Cross Station

Saturday, April 13, 2013

But, Hagrid, there must be a mistake. This says Platform 9 3/4. There's no such thing... is there?

Yes. I love Harry Potter. Sue me. 

Naturally, visiting King's Cross Station was embarrassingly high on my list. 

A note about the tube. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love it because it is a people watcher's dream. So many personalities and it feels just so London. It's a great moment when you finally feel like you could switch lines without worrying you'll end up in the wrong place. The one thing I really really hate about the tube is that it is not stroller friendly! It is so rare to find a station with a lift. Today was our first time, and I almost took a picture of it just to document it. I've had to rely on the kindness of strangers to carry my stroller up and down stairs for me. I have been so impressed by how helpful people are here.
The key to riding the tube with this girl: snacks.
Waiting in line to get our picture taken at Platform 9 3/4. He is the smiliest baby.

Ta-da! They had scarves there to put on,  and we had a fun time playing along.

These shots are basically identical, except I had to post them to show Pato's face. So cute! He kills me!


S had a BLAST running around the station. Do I sense a future Harry Potter fan, hmm?


Tonight, we are checking off another thing on my list: watch Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone while IN London. Flying my nerd flag high, people.
