Delve into a world of witchcraft and wizardry at The British Library
This new exhibition takes you on a spellbinding journey through the magic and myth that inspired the Harry Potter books.
Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone with this extraordinary new addition to J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.
On display for the first time are original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and illustrator Jim Kay.
A must for any Potter fan worth their wand
Rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library’s collection are on display – the items capture the traditions of folklore and magic which are at the heart of the Harry Potter stories.
See the gargantuan 16th-century Ripley Scroll that explains how to create a Philosopher’s Stone. Gaze at Sirius in the night sky as imagined by medieval astronomers. Encounter hand-coloured pictures of dragons, unicorns and a phoenix rising from the flames.
