Platform 9 3/4 Harry Potter, London.
Curator’s statement

For Harry Potter fans worldwide, London is the the only place in the world to experience the magic of this epic saga brought to life on film. From Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, The Making of Harry Potter to the various landmarks throughout London, Potterheads will go wild on this unforgettable journey. I was fortunate to take this journey a few times with my daughter who is a huge Harry Potter fan. And I have to say, I instantly became a fellow Potterhead* in the end (*Potterheads are die-hard fans devoted to the franchise).
