Wizards, witches and any Hogwarts hopefuls will be well-rewarded by a visit to The Store of Requirement in Samford. Step though the wooden doors of this souvenir shop into the magical realm of Harry Potter, filled with broomsticks, cauldrons and all manner of trinkets.
Glance upward to appreciate the enchanted ceiling, filled with "floating candles" or make a selection from the wide range of wands and official Harry Potter merchandise such as the house scarves, gowns and jerseys.
Visitors are encouraged to try out the "sorting hat", lounge around the castle common room or visit Nagini's lair which is hidden down the back corner of the store.
The Flying Nun Cafe is located right next door to The Store of Requirement and is selling Buttery Beer to commemorate the shop's opening.
In a nutshell: Magical souvenir shop selling official Harry Potter merchandise.
Nice to know: Street parking available in front of The Store of Requirement.
