The new 600 sq.ft. store will be situated following the security check in Terminal 5 and will open in time for the 18th November release of Warner Bros.

The store will be visited by more than 16 million passengers traveling around the globe and coming through Heathrow Terminal 5 each year. THE HARRY POTTER™ SHOP has been produced by Jonathan Sands (Chief Executive of the Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 ¾ King’s Cross Station) and in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
