House of MinaLima to Remain Open

As so many London visitors and locals have discovered, tucked away in Soho behind the Palace Theatre (the home of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) is the delightful House of MinaLima. Showcasing the work of designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, including the art of the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films, the four-story house is the perfect stop for any fan. The exhibition/shop combination opened in 2016 and has become a staple of many Potter fans. Now, more visitors will have the chance to experience the talent of the design duo!

MinaLima announced on their Facebook page today that their shop on Greek Street will remain open:

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: We have some exciting news to share with you all! Our spells and potions have worked and House of MinaLima in London is staying open! If you are planning a visit to London, or you are a fully-fledged Londoner, make sure you come see us at 26 Greek Street, London W1D 5DE!
