If you’re a lover of all things Harry Potter, you need to get yourself over to House of Minalima, an exhibition and shop showcasing all things magic.
House of MinaLima, which is located in London’s Soho, showcases fifteen years of creative collaboration of graphic design duo Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, the two founders of the shop.
The House is home to four floors of ‘distinctive’ designs on display, including the graphic art from the entire Harry Potter film series, as well as art from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
On floor 3, you will enter into a 1920s New York, where you can browse upon reproduced limited edition prints, which can also be bought there and then.
Floors 1 and 2 are dedicated to featuring graphic art from all of the Harry Potter films – which includes Marauder’s Map, The Daily Prophet newspapers and the bestseller Whomping Willow, which are all presented alongside authentic film props, such as the holy Hogwarts letter.
Though as the props are on loan from Warner Bros. Studio Tour, they aren’t for sale – sorry.
However, on the ground floor, everything’s for sale.
The groundfloor consists of a shop primarily for muggles who are just destined to be wizards. Here you can become the owner of any graphic art print exhibited on the previous floors.
There are also posters, stationery, accessories and books all on offer.
But best of all, you can purchase replicas of the props seen on the Harry Potter floors – which means you can finally get your hands on your very own Hogwarts letter or The Daily Prophet newspaper ready for reading on your commute home.
House of MinaLima is open every single day from 12-7pm for Potterheads to go wild in. Though, according to the owners, they tend to get very, very busy (which is no surprise), so they suggest visiting on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays if you fancy a quiet tour.
And don’t worry, for those of you who won’t be able to attend at all, everything available in the shop is also available to order online.
Sure, it won’t be the same experience – but at least it means you can officially receive a Hogwarts letter through the post (just make sure you don’t order it for a Sunday, because there DEFINITELY shouldn’t be any post on Sundays).
