Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour was a shop that sold ice-cream. Located in North Side, Diagon Alley, next to the Second-Hand Bookshop[1], the Parlour was owned and operated by Florean Fortescue before he disappeared in 1996.[2]


The Parlour is a small shop with places to sit down inside, and a small area outside with a bunch of tables and chairs. Inside, there can be found lots of colourful ice-cream on display.[3]


On Harry Potter's first visit to Diagon Alley, Rubeus Hagrid presented him with a large ice cream (chocolate and raspberry flavoured with chopped nuts), which likely came from Fortescue's establishment.[4] In 1993, Harry spent a lot of time at the Parlour doing his homework while Mr Fortescue helped him and gave him free ice cream every half-hour.[5] In 1996, Bill Weasley mentioned that Mr Fortescue had been "dragged off" by the looks of the ice cream parlour.[2] It was later confirmed that he had been abducted by Death Eaters, and eventually killed.[6] It is unknown what became of the Parlour after his death.
