Fantastic shop, but overpriced
Aug 2021 • Family
Great shopping experience the kids loved it. Very overpriced for what it is. Fantastic range on offer and most of it seemed good quality.

We got our photo on 9 3/4 just after 11am and didn’t have to wait.

Great, but overpriced
Aug 2021 • Family
I'm 12 and a huge Harry Potter fan. I had heard a lot about the shop but was slightly annoyed when I looked at things to buy. This was because while the available items to buy were great, everything was very overpriced. The cheapest item I could find as a souvenir (as in not edible) was £7.95, and it was a small keyring.
Overall I think the shop is very nice to look around but if you are looking to buy anything you'll want to prepare yourself with at least £25.

Overpriced For Muggles
Aug 2021 • Family
A special mention to the member of staff on the wand section, absoutley amazing, knew everything about each wand, and made the experice for our daughter more enjoyable.

If you are a Harry Potter fan you have to visit,

However never mind the staff wearing Hufflepuff and Slytherin jumpers. They need to wear masks and stripey black and white jumpers, as the prices are "day light robbery" . Unless the wands can magic money, then us muggles are going to be leaving the store a bit lighter in our wallets.

Again it was an amazing experience for our daughter. I can't fault that.

And I understand people will say "You don't have to buy the merch"
However we are not minge bags, and want to make memories for our daughter. That I suppose is priceless.

Big thank you to all the staff for making it amazing for the kids.

Just had to visit.

We are huge Harry Potter fans and had to visit the shop and also the platform they filmed Harry Potter on. A great few hours spent in the small shop spending our muggle money.

Crap

Ordered a jumper from The website, got confirmation and a tracking number only to be advised 4 days before Christmas that there was an inventory error and would not be getting it. Now its to late to order anything else.

Wrong item sent on order
Oct 2020 • Solo
I placed an order for a t.shirt for my grandson. When the order was delivered I opened the parcel and found that I had been sent a packet of gadget decals instead of the t.shirt!!

How on earth does a packet of gadget decals look like a t.shirt.

If your order is incorrect you have to email the store and I'm still waiting for a reply!!!!!

Ript off?

I’ve placed an online order 2 weeks ago, paid it, got a confirmation email and then never heard from them again. No reaction to my inquiry for at least timing.

Brilliant! Go now, no queues...
Aug 2020 • Couples
As part of my journey in London for the HP filming locations, we couldn’t miss this place! Due to pandemic, there was no queue at all...just a few people, so go now if you can! The staff from the shop clean after each customer and gives instructions on your way to the store! They take a picture of you and if you like it, you can purchase it! Brilliant service!

Nice!
Aug 2020
Nice shop, was allowed to take a picture with the platform for free with my phone and did not need to wear a mask in the picture (unlike at the WB Harry Potter Studio in Leavesden) which was really nice. Would recommend a visit, even during Covid-19, as they clean the trolley after each picture.
