Harry Potter's UK Diagon Alley Now On Google Street View

If you grew up on the Harry Potter books (or even just read them to someone who did), the name Diagon Alley will no doubt ring a few bells. The fictional street is where Harry Potter and his friends go to buy their school supplies in the first book and it's a regular feature in all seven of the Harry Potter books.

Warner Bros. did an excellent job bringing our favourite Harry Potter locations to life, but you don't really get to see all the work the studio put in while watching the movies. The cameras move too fast to take in all of the detail and there are other things to pay attention to. Still, if you'd like a closer look at Diagon Alley, you can now explore it on your own time thanks to Google. The search giant has added the Warner Bros. set to Google Street View.


The official address for is "Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, Studio Tour Drive, Leavesden, Hertfordshire WD25 7LS," but you can find Diagon Alley through this direct link. Watch out for the scary figure in the shadows!

    This is sweet! Its a shame that universal didnt make an exact replica of this set and include it in their Harry Potter theme park

    I never understood why such smart magicians couldn't figure out right angles. I mean the headaches that must have gone into building every one of those shops so whimsically out of square... Its like they have nothing better to do with their time.
