A famous place of rendezvous
for London. When a government minister Jeffery Archer
sent people here to pay off
, and MI6
sent an agent here to pick up a briefcase once "accidently" left behind by a Soviet Diplomat
Platform 3 is more generally used nowadays by people to meet various strangers they want to meet for whatever reason. This is why it has taken off in some internet circles as a totemic rendezvous point.
In my experience meeting anyone at Platform 3 has always resulted in a very bad set of experiences following. So I would suggest avoiding that tradition, and meet at Platform 4 at Victoria Station, or Platform 3 at Paddington Station.
