Next time you visit King’s Cross Station in London, you’ll have an easier time finding Platform 9 3/4 of Harry Potter fame.

The train terminal that J.K. Rowling made famous has undergone a makeover worth 550,000,000 GBP (or $875 million). Although we don’t recommend trying to go through the wall to get to Hogwarts like they do in the movies.

Also being added to the station, right next to the platform, is the first Watermark bookstore. It’s a 1,100 sq ft shop with 7,000 books available to pick up while you’re in the middle of your commute.

Watermark hopes to open 35 bookstores at airports and railways all over the United Kingdom.
