Potterheads listen up! Two new Harry Potter shops have recently opened in the capital.

Diagon House, located on Cockburn Street and Victoria Street in Edinburgh, celebrates all things Harry Potter, in the centre of the city which gave JK Rowling the inspiration for the magical shopping spot, Diagon Alley. 

The shops are full of magical and mysterious prop replicas from the films, official merchandise, gifts and souvenirs.

A post shared by the shop on Facebook said: "Muggles Welcome, Relatives by Appointment. Please let us point your Nimbus 2000 in the right direction to find our two stores situated in the heart of Edinburgh's medieval Old Town, The Birthplace of Harry Potter."

The shop assures that its staff, 'purveyors of all things Potter', will amuse and delight you with the selection of Harry Potter goodies which can help you recreate the magic of the books and films. 

The local family-run business hopes to impress JK Rowling herself and celebrate her wonderful legacy. 

Muggles are invited to explore the wand selection, gaze up at the Nimbus 2001 and even check out the Marauders Map.

Evening Times:

Victoria Street is said to have been the inspiration for Diagon Alley and the perfect place to host a Harry Potter shop.

Not far from the cobbled street fans can also find the Museum on the Mound, the former bank which gave Rowling the inspiration for Gringotts Wizard Bank.

Evening Times:

Edinburgh also hosts The Elephant House, the cafe where Rowling spent much of her time writing the books and developing the magical world we have come to know and love. 

The first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published 20 years ago.
