In honor of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Releasing in UK cinemas, the iconic Platform 9 ¾ Trolley will tour UK train stations.

The travel trolley will allow fans to recreate Harry Potter’s first journey on the 9 ¾ platform that saw him pass through a magical brick wall in King’s Cross station in London, before taking the 11am train for Hogwarts.

Every year, more than two million people visit the tram which is usually found in the concourse of King’s Cross station, next to the Harry Potter shop on platform 9 ¾, but soon more and more cities in the UK- Uni will also be able to experience the magic.

A replica of the cart will tour four stations in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales in October to celebrate the anniversary. Muggles, witches and wizards will have the opportunity to take pictures of themselves as if to run through the wall, to reach Platform 9 ¾, the starting point of the Hogwarts Express.
