Covid19 Update: Our shop is now open again! We are following Public Health England guidelines for both staff and customers in store. For orders placed online it is still possible that there may be courier delays.


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.
