Browse ‘Harry Potter’s’ Diagon Alley with Google Street View

Despite technology not being able to function properly in the Wizarding World, the magicians at Google were seemingly able to get their Street Views cars to roll through Diagon Alley.

Google Street View can now be used to browse the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley. You can peruse the real sets used for the Harry Potter film series as if you paid for a ticket to visit the studio tour yourself.

To access, click here to be brought to the location in Google Maps and then click ‘Street View’ if it does not load immediately. If you exit Street View, you can browse the outdoor area of Leavesden Studios, which was used for many exterior scenes, including Privet Drive.

After Deathly Hallows wrapped filming in 2010, part of Leavesden Studios (where all eight Potter movies were shot) was converted into a tour attraction along with permanent sound stages for future films to use.

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter opened in 2011 and has served as the country’s sole Potter attraction.

Earlier this year we shared photos of the Royal Family visiting the attraction and channeling their inner wizard. The momentous occasion even brought out author J.K. Rowling.
