Nestled within the shadows of Knockturn Alley is a shop home to an unsettling collection of dark oddities and curiosities from the wizarding world. This eerie establishment beckons not only witches and wizards dabbling in the dark arts but also curious Muggles who dare to cross its threshold.

Borgin and Burkes, a name well-known to fans of both the films and books, served as a pivotal setting frequented by prominent characters, like Draco Malfoy. It was infamous for peddling malevolent objects, notorious for their sinister purposes as they were often wielded against adversaries. Notably, Borgin and Burkes served as the gateway for Malfoy to usher Death Eaters into Hogwarts Castle.

Borgin and Burkes – OI fun facts

  • Draco Malfoy would test the Vanishing Cabinet in the Room of Requirement by sending live birds to its twin housed in Borgin and Burkes. Listen closely to the Vanishing Cabinet in the back corner of this shop to hear a bird chirping behind its doors. 
  • In an attempt to kidnap Harry Potter, Barty Crouch Jr. imprisoned Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, and disguised himself to get closer to the boy who lived. The chest that held Moody captive now lies within the mysterious confines of Borgin and Burkes.
  • Look up to the second level of Borgin and Burkes to find various wizarding world objects. In fact, 90% of these are props and set dressings from the Harry Potter films.
