Do you wish you could travel down Diagon Alley to experience where Harry Potter spent a good amount of his time. If you have a computer and access to the internet, you can use Google Maps Street View to experience Diagon Alley on your very own.
Sure, it’s not exactly a Marauder’s Map, but the new Diagon Valley street view does give a great representation of the famous location. The map looks “movie authentic” because the street view was actually taken from the Warner Bros. Studio Lot Tour in London, England.
With Street View mode, users can examine Diagon Valley with the help of 360-degree images.
All of the famous shops from the Harry Potter series can be found via Google Maps Street View including Ollivanders Wand Shop, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes joke shop, and Mr. Mulpepper’s Apothecary.
The Diagon Valley Google Maps Street View is very detailed thanks to Warner Bros. spending more than three months to build the famed Harry Potter location. The detail is so great that Warner Bros. placed 20,000 products on shop shelves.
Here’s a photo of some products Warner Bros. placed inside the joke shop via the Diagon Alley movie set:
Despite the seventh and final Harry Potter book being released years ago, the series continues to live on as fans of the popular J.K. Rowling book series keep its spirit alive.
If you don’t care to take part in movie set tours, Google Maps Street View continues to add other unique locations including the tops of mountain summits, dangerous roads around the world, and various other locations.
Do you like the idea of touring famous movie sets and other “fake” locations through the help of Google Maps Street View?
