If you think this photo was taken at the famous train station in London 🇬🇧 then you are wrong ⚠️ A brand new Harry Potter themed cafe named 934 Kings Cross opened in 🇰🇷 Seouls’ trendy district Hongdae that is known for its numerous themed coffee shops. ☕️
To be honest, calling this place a cafe is a massive understatement. It is a six ‼️storey building that is Harry Potter themed from the basement and all the way up to the sixth floor.
I dare to say that once all of the floors become accessible to public, this is probably going to be the largest Harry Potter themed cafe in the world. You can check out my new blog post (link in the bio) for the full experience ⚡️
