Step into this magical world in Manly
The magical world of Harry Potter has been brought to life at the Mad Hatters bookshop in Manly Harbour Village. A Harry Potter Games and Reading Room and homage to all things Harry Potter & Hogwarts has been created out of an empty room at this wonderful independently run bookshop.
Similar to the famous 'virtual door' on platform 9 ¾ at King's Cross Station in London enter through a 'door' to a room adorned with wizardly and magical artefacts. Books, games and scenes from Harry Potter help replicate the inner sanctum of Hogwarts in this fun and cosy space that Harry Potter fans young and older will enjoy.
It's a chance to browse through the Harry Potter books on display and immerse yourself into a magical space before stepping back into the world of Muggles. Continue your book reading and enjoy refreshments at one of the many cafes in Manly Harbour Village or sit by the foreshore to read and gaze over the views of Manly Harbour and Moreton Bay.
