Harry Potter: A History of Magic Open until Wed 28 Feb 2018 Journey to where magic and myth began Have you ever wanted to delve into Divination, ponder the peculiarities of Potions and discover enchanting creatures? Now you can. We unveil rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library’s collection, capturing the traditions of folklore and magic which are at the heart of the Harry Potter stories. Marvel at original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and illustrator Jim Kay, both on display for the first time. 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. 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. We visited the Harry Potter tour this week, if you're looking to go here are a few things to look forward too! Just outside the Library As we make our way through into the tour it's self Exhibits donated by JK Rowling which shows some of her original manuscripts, sketches and artwork by Jim Kay. Also included is medieval material on alchemy and magic, all organised by the different classes at Hogwarts. Here are few examples of JK's work and Jim Kay! We'd recommend visiting Platform 9 3/4 shop at King's Cross Station which is a 10 minute walk. You can have your photo taken while trying to get through to Platform 9 3/4 (but don't tell the muggles!). Overall, the experience was great and it was amazing insight into JK's mind. Interactive demo's for the kids to play on and make potions, while the adults can learn about the history which was used for the making of Harry Potter and The Wizarding World. https://www.bl.uk/events/harry-potter-a-history-of-magic Disclaimer: TheWizardingWorld.co.uk website are in no way affiliated with or endorsed by J.K.
