Visit Our Magical Apothecary

The Potions Cauldron is situated in England's oldest shopping street at 9¾ Shambles, York YO1 7LZ. 

Shambles is York’s most historic street and a must see for any visitor to the city. The street dates back to 1086 and was mentioned in the Domesday Book. The home of The Potions Cauldron is also a shrine to the Saint Margaret Clitherow and you can still see the Priest Hole in the shop today.

Shambles has been described by Visit England as the real Diagon Alley and with several magical and movie themed shops, it is a must visit for Harry Potter fans from around the World.

Once inside the shop you will find all the magical potions that were originally served centuries ago as well as the chance to visit the secret Potion Room and enjoy the Cauldron Experience from only 5.99 per person.
