Children’s Literature Pilgrimage, Part I

My husband and I just traveled to Europe to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Though completely unplanned, our days in England proved to be a children’s literature pilgrimage. We spent only a day in London, as we had both been there before, but we did make a special stop at one particular railroad station. Can you guess which one?

Our hotel was right across from Paddington Station, so we can give a nod to that brown bear in wellies and a duffle coat. But we also swung by King’s Cross Station to seek out Platform 9 3/4. How glorious to see that it really exists.

Though there is a Harry Potter World and many filming sites to see throughout England, this was enough to bring the book to life for us.

  1. That’s brilliant! Sounds like a fantastic trip- I’d love to go to King’s Cross station like that someday- it does seem like it would bring back the magic of HP!
