Harry Potter exhibition: A History of Magic (open until 28 Feb 2018)
Apart from taking the Hogwarts Express on Pier 9 3/4 at King's Cross Station, here's another good reason to visit London.
Until the end of February 2018, British Library hosts the harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition.
A History of Magic offers a dive into the world of magic, its folklore and traditions, the common thread of J.K. Rowling's best-selling books. About 100 ancient artifacts from the collections of the British National Library are presented alongside unpublished archives by the author and her publisher Bloomsbury.
Herbology, astronomy, care for magical creatures: in each room its speciality as at the Hogwarts school of witchcraft. Visitors can create their own potion, view a 400-year-old celestial globe or a parchment explaining how to create the Philosopher's Stone.
The exhibition is divided into 7 parts according to courses taught at Hogwarts - Potions and Alchemy, Botany, Spells, Astronomy, Divination, Defense against the Forces of Evil and Care for Magical Creatures.
The master plaice not to be missed: a first unpublished edition of Harry Potter at the Sorcerer's Schoolannotated and illustrated by J.K. Rowling.
Date: from here until February 28, 2018
Location: British Library, 96 Euston Road, King's Cross, London NW1 2DB
