The Wizarding World of magic and mayhem is set to open its doors to millions of passengers at Heathrow Airport .
The Harry Potter shop at Terminal 5 will welcome its first Muggle shoppers next month, in time for the release of Warner Bros Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on November 18, bringing a whole new era of magic.
The new 600sq ft store will launch ahead of Christmas, selling items from across J.K. Rowling's fantasy adventure world including collectibles, gifts and souvenirs from Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross Station and the West End hit play "Harry Potter and The Cursed Child Parts One and Two", as well as new products from the latest movie.
Heathrow’s commercial director, Jonathan Coen, said: “We are really pleased to welcome the new Harry Potter Shop to Terminal 5.
"Harry Potter is loved across the globe and what better place to enjoy gift and souvenirs from the Wizarding World before our passengers fly to the other side of the world.
"We hope our customers enjoy everything the new store has to offer as they take a little magic with them.”
The shop, which will be found after security, has been produced by Jonathan Sands - chief executive of the Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 ¾ King’s Cross Station - who is "looking forward to bringing some magic to the UK's most iconic airport", in partnership with Warner Bros. consumer products.
Paul Bufton, vice president of licensing and business development EMEA, Warner Bros consumer products, added: “This exciting shopping experience will offer fans a wide range of products from souvenirs to collectibles, along with exclusive Platform 9 ¾-inspired products to take on their journeys as they travel the world.”
Earlier this month, Heathrow also opened the UK's first airport Garden Gate with 1,680 plants at a passenger gate at Terminal 3.
