Liverpudlians with a passion for Harry Potter will no doubt be aware that our city has played a part in the hugely successful film franchise, with cast and crew visiting Liverpool back in 2009 to film scenes for The Deathly Hallows Part 1 in our very own Queensway Tunnel.

There are plenty of cards available from National Museums Liverpool, so I make sure our Merchandising and Buying team point me in the right direction. Here is their guide to help you to choose something for each person.
