The Potions Cauldron is located on York’s historic Shambles, described by Visit England as the real Diagon Alley, where magical potions have been brewed since the 14th century. Some 700 years later these potions are now being brewed again and served as soft drinks with a magical twist. A magical drinks emporium for Wizards serving the ancient magical potions of French Witch Agnes de Molay which we’re brought back to York in the 14th century by Phileas Fry. Come and try our magical drinkable potions, learn the spell and unlock the magic. We have potions for all ages.

You can also visit the secret wizard sanctuary that was used to hide Wizards at a time when magic was outlawed in York. Once beyond the mystical wall you will find all means of magic including a 6,000 piece Lego Hogwarts and a bubbling cauldron.

The Potions Cauldron gives you the chance to mix your own magical potions, look for magical friends who are still taking sanctuary at 9¾ Shambles (you never know who you will find), and buy magical gifts for friends and family including our famous magical potions, bath potions and much more!
