Blimey! You Can Google Street View Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley

You guys. YOU GUYS. Diagon Alley is on Google Street View.

And it’s totally real. Mashable says it’s actually comprised of images of the Diagon Alley set at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, but lalalalala I can’t hear you.

If you want to believe that it’s simply photos of sets from the Harry Potter movies, that’s your choice. In that case, you might be interested to know that Warner Bros. says the Diagon Alley set itself took more than three months to build. It took six months to create all the products on the shelves, like Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes and copies of all of Gilderoy Lockhart’s books.

Besides, it’s not like it’s easy for me to take the kids to London to go see the tour in real life. I mean, I keep throwing powder into my fireplace and NOTHING DOING.

Google Street View is the next best thing for me and my Harry Potter-obsessed kids.

Check out some of the cool images below, and then apparate yourself over to Google Street View and explore Diagon Alley!
