The Hogwarts Express may not exist, but J.K. Rowling fans can still have a photo op at King’s Cross; be prepared to wait. Afterwards, spend your galleons on souvenir wands, toys, and Gryffindor gear.

No, you can definitely take the picture yourself, without any charge. You just have to ask the photographer to let you stand next to him so you can take the picture yourself.
