Admit it, as muggles, all of us at some point have wondered what it would be like to visit the cobblestone alleys in the wizarding world of Harry Potter. Walking past the bustling crowd in the narrow, winding streets of Diagon Alley to buy some quills or Floo powder or, to pick up the new pet owl before leaving for Hogwarts.
Fret not, The Shop That Must Not be Named is here to let you fulfill that dream now.
The one-stop-shop for Harry Potter fans opened on 9th May this year in The Shambles, York, a city in northeast England.
Owned by one Adam Rodway, the store sells everything from wands, Harry Potter uniforms and broomsticks to sorting hats, jewelry, mugs and notebooks.
What’s more, the shop’s official merchandise also includes a life-size sword of Godric Gryffindor!
The Shambles is one of the most popular streets in York and the inspiration behind J.K Rowling’s fictional thoroughfare located in the heart of wizarding London, Diagon Alley.
