The Potions Cauldron

About

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 at the back of The Potions Cauldron 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 potion and be a trainee wizard with our Phileas Phials.

You can also look for magical friends who are still taking sanctuary at 9¾ Shambles, York, you never know who you will find.

Don’t leave without taking a magical selfie to show all your friends and be a Wanted Wizard.

Buy magical gifts for friends and family including our famous magical potions, bath potions and much more!
