Due to the Coronavirus situation our retail shop is temporarily closed. You can still order from our website, however it is possible that there may be courier delays and we encourage customers who have placed orders with us to check for updates with our third-party carriers, Royal Mail and Hermes, for up-to-date changes to their delivery services. Lastly, as an independent business we'd like to thank you for your support. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.


The Shop That Must Not Be Named is an independent gift shop specialising in officially licensed Harry Potter merchandise in York, North Yorkshire. We have been open since May 2017. Previously our selection of Harry Potter giftware was available through our sister shop ...give the dog a bone, but as our range grew and grew, we took the leap and decided to open a fully dedicated shop in the historic and atmospheric street known as The Shambles, believed to be the inspiration behind Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter film series.
