1st September is marks a very important day for all Harry Potter fans; it’s the first day of school at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, also known as Hogwarts Day. Witches and wizards from all over the country flocked to King's Cross, St Pancras this morning to fling themselves through a brick wall and onto the famous Platform 9 3/4.
Earlier today, Rowling tweeted, “If you're at King's Cross, the Potter, Granger-Weasley and Malfoy families are there too.”
The Kings Cross station too, confirmed the departure of the Hogwarts Express, posting the details of the magical journey on its departure boards.
And, as a result of this announcement, Potterheads are trying to boards the train.
