The Bloomsbury Harry Potter website is Bloomsbury Publishing's official website for the U.K. releases of the Harry Potter books. Launched in 2001, the site features information about both the books and author J. K. Rowling, as well as bonus features such as games and printable bookmarks and posters.

In June 2012, Bloomsbury launched a contest on the site, a search for the UK and Ireland's biggest Harry Potter fan. The contest was open to residents of those regions.

Behind the scenes
