HOLY HIPPOGRIFFS! A New Harry Potter Shop Has Opened In Edinburgh’s ‘Diagon Alley’

Get yourself to Gringotts bank ASAP because all your muggle dreams have been answered with a new Harry Potter shop opening in the home of the wizarding world, Edinburgh. The Scottish capital is now home to not one, but TWO Diagon Alley inspired shops called Diagon House. Here's what you can expect...

The new magical emporiums are already proving popular, with lines of fans down the street who are flocking to not just buy themed merchandise, but witness the store’s interior that looks like it really belongs in Diagon Alley. Inside is a mix between Ollivander’s wand shop, Dervish & Bangs and Flourish and Blotts; it seriously has everything from chocolate frogs to Quidditch kits. Also, fun fact, the Victoria Street store is housed on the very street that is said to have given J.K. Rowling her wave of inspiration for the real Diagon Alley.
