Largest collection of Wizarding World memorabilia (UK)


( A Harry Potter superfan has an enormous collection of wizarding relics worth more than £17,000 on display in her home.

Victoria Maclean began collecting Harry Potter memorabilia when the first film was released in 2001.

And the self-confessed addict now boasts a collection of more than 700 items.

Victoria, 34, has her whole family hooked on the boy wizard and has even named her two sons, Daniel, 13 and Harry, 4 in honour of the main character and actor, Daniel Radcliffe.

Daughter Monica, 16, is the only one without a Potter reference to her name.

The mum-of-three from Swansea said: "I love everything about Harry Potter. The story, the story behind the story. How one woman changed a nation and changed the way we read.

"I could never sell any of my collection. I collect the rarest items and items that have only been released at film premieres so are very hard to come by."

Victoria's favourite items are her Platform 9 and three quarters snow globe and her Wizard Collection catalogue of artefacts book which she has had signed by cast members when she meets them.

Her obsession with Harry Potter started when she bought the book Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 2001.

Victoria suffers from severe dyslexia and says the Harry Potter books helped her to deal with her condition hugely.

"I bought the book after hearing about the craze on Blue Peter. I was pregnant with my eldest son at the time.

"It took me two and a half weeks to read and I couldn't put it down.

"After that I was living in the wizarding world that JK Rowling had created."

Everything in Victoria's life is magical, even her job. She works as a princess and regularly attends children's parties.

However, it is JK Rowling's tales that have her hooked.

Victoria was lucky enough to be on the film set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One during the burial of Dobby the house-elf in Freshwater West.

She has a Facebook page too dedicated to her collection called 'Harry Potter Collector UK' which has more than 350 fans.
