Cost Pay as you wish
It’s easier to call yourself a true fan if you possess merchandise to back up your claim. But move beyond usual objects like posters and notebooks, and add unusual ones to your collection, including a table lamp designed like a golden snitch, a deck of UNO cards themed on the series and a LEGO kit based on the night bus in the Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban book.

Take the Potter tour
JK Rowling didn’t conjure the locations in the books out of thin air. She often took inspiration from places around her, such as the flat in London’s Clapham Junction where she used to live, and a road sign in the area that inspired the name for Severus Snape. Join a virtual tour of some of these locations, including cafés where Rowling wrote parts of the series.
