A Harry Potter Platform 9 ¾ tour is coming to Dundrum Town Centre
Calling all muggles and wizards – and their families.
A special Harry Potter Platform 9 ¾ trolley tour is on its way to Dublin – and so this November, little Irish wizards can get to take a picture with the famous magic brick wall – and Harry's luggage trolley.
The tour, which has been doing the rounds in the UK, is currently en route to Belfast, and will be arriving in Dublin on November 5th.
The iconic Platform 9 ¾ Trolley tour is all to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone releasing in cinemas, and the installation allows eager Harry Potter fans the opportunity to recreate the moment when Harry first made it on to Platform 9 ¾, by running through a magical brick wall in London’s King’s Cross station. After the young wizard got through the wall, of course, he hopped on the 11 o’clock train to Hogwarts.
To mark the milestone anniversary a replica trolley will travel from the UK to Ireland. Meaning muggles, witches and wizards alike will all be able to get a photo of them appearing to run through the wall, to reach Platform 9 ¾, where the Hogwarts Express departs from.
The tour will visit Belfast Lanyon Place Station this weekend, from the 29th – 31st October and will then move on to Dundrum Town Centre in South Dublin from the 5th-7th November.
The official 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone will be celebrated on the 16th November 2021.
