Twinkle's Telescopes was a shop in Diagon Alley that specialised in astronomical implements, such as telescopes, moon maps, and star charts.[2]

It was located between Praedico Predico and Pettichaps. The building that housed Twinkle's Telescopes also housed Tut's Nuts in its basement.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Illustrator Jim Kay revealed that Twinkle's Telescopes was named after a real shop in Mansfield, "Sally Twinkles".[3]
    • He perhaps meant "Sally Twinkle", an Arts & Crafts Store.[4]
