Cobb & Webb's was a shop in Knockturn Alley, London, where one could purchase items related to the Dark Arts. It was located next door to Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, down the street from Borgin and Burkes, and it was run by a witch, who refused to sell anything to a twelve-year-old Harry Potter, when he passed by the shop in the summer of 1992.
Behind the scenes
- This shop, which makes its only appearance in the GBC version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, is never identified during the course of normal gameplay, being instead labelled as "a Knockturn Alley Shop" (along with Ye Olde Curiosity Shop next door). On the map selection menu, however, which is part of the game's files, this shop is referred to as "Cobb & Webb's".
- The name of this shop is a pun on "cobweb", and a reference to the spidery decor inside the shop.
