Our expert staff has all of the best tips, tricks, and recommendations. Keep reading for your guide to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.


  1. Check out Honey Dukes for Chocolate Frog’s, Jelly Slugs, White Chocolate Skulls, and more candy that will remind you of the movies.
  2. Visit Three Broom Sticks for a Traditional English Breakfast. And for lunch and dinner, we love Fish & Chips and Shepherd’s Pie.

Diagon Alley

  1. Go to Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour for the best and most unique ice cream. Our favorite is the iconic Butterbeer Soft-serve in a waffle cone.
  2. Try traditional British food at the Leaky Cauldron. For breakfast, we recommend the Pancake Breakfast. For lunch or dinner the Bangers and Mash or the Beef, Lamb, and Guinness Stew.
  3. Grab Gillywater from Eternelle’s Elixir of Refreshment and pick from a variety of elixirs that transform your water into unique and flavourful beverages.
