I was hesitant about going to a play that is in 2 parts but it works and they were excellent. Every Potter fan needs to go but also recommend for others.

There is an excellent shop/gallery called the House of MinaLima. The owners designed all the artwork for the HP films and the displays over 3 floors are amazing. You can also buy prints of the artwork.
