Although the Harry Potter books and film have come to an end, it is by no means over for millions of fans around the world. With the steady popularity of the Harry Potter novels and movies, it is no surprise that L.A. has its own Harry Potter store: Whimsic Alley in Los Angeles.
This quaint little shop almost goes unnoticed to passersby - unless you've got a groundskeeper giant guiding you with his magic wand as he gently taps and takes a customers into the famous world of Diagon Alley. As you've been granted access to the shop via floo powder, everything inside the store amazes you.
Quite cluttered and given an eerie dungeon ambiance, it is filled with everything from the wizarding world imaginable. From hundreds of box-filled wands waiting to chose its true owner, to plush dolls and school supplies to get you ready for your return to Hogwarts after the holidays. And let's not forget your new wizarding robes that are a must have!
With their expansive relocation from Santa Monica to Los Angeles a few years ago, Whimsic Alley has added several activities for all to enjoy! Tea Time in the Great Hall is a real treat! But you have to book fast because they sell out magically... Poof! Enjoy Real Magic Lessons, Real Divination Lessons, Murder Mystery Dinners and Wizard Rock Concerts.
So, for all Harry Potter fans in Los Angeles.... there is hope! Far beyond the books and films, comes our own Harry Potter superstore for us to immerse ourselves in for years to come. A true gem in the City of Angels!
