The bridge that Harry and his friends walk over to get to the infamous 'nine and three quarters' platform to board the train to Hogwart's may soon be demolished.

Kings' Cross station, from where Harry's train scenes are filmed is going through a major expansion, which has resulted in plans to remove this particular bridge.

Harry Potter fans are trying their best to see if they can save this famous icon that tourists love to visit. While the bridge is mentioned in some the earlier Harry Potter books, it gains a lot of significance in the last book "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", where there is a special chapter entitled 'Kings' Cross' - Additionally, it is also mentioned in the epilogue, when the author wraps up the grand finale of the series.

Hopefully, Potter fans will succeed!

    According to my research, the bridge was taken out and put into a new station where Harry Potter fans could enjoy it.
