Suppose someone from "Harry's world" married a Muggle, and they want to escort their child. Can the Muggle parent get through to the Hogwarts platform?

Sure, absolutely.

Here's Lily's parents on platform nine and three-quarters.

And the scene refomed. Harry looked around: he was on platform nine and three-quarters, and Snape stood beside him, slightly hunched, next to a thin, sallow-faced, sour-looking woman who greatly resembled him. Snape was staring at a family of four a short distance away. The two girls stood a little apart from their parents. Lily seemed to be pleading with her sister; Harry moved closer to listen.


Lily glanced towards her parents, who were looking around the platform with an air of wholehearted enjoyment, drinking in the scene.

    @maawneli No, but the films are nonsense ;-)

    @maawneli No, but in the books this is the scene where Petunia first calls Lily a freak (I didn't include it because it's not really relevant), whereas in the movie she calls Lily a freak when Lily is playing with the flower, so that bit kind of makes it into the movie

  • I'd be interested to know how - just sort of dragged through the barrier like Kitty Pryde?

Yes because if not how would Hermione have said goodbye to her parents? What did she say goodbye and then walk through a wall? I mean if they can go to Diagon Alley why not Platform 9 3/4?

  • Welcome to SciFi.SE! The accepted answer already indicates (with canon proof) that Muggles can pass through the wall, so I don't see what value this answer adds.

    This answer answers the question and adds additional corroborating evidence to the currently accepted answer. However, it would be improved if some evidence, such as quotes, were edited into it.
