Maybe we’re well over a decade into waiting for that Hogwarts letter. And maybe our first visit to the actual Leaky Cauldron is still a year away (see you soon, Orlando). But, as always, the internet cures all sorrows.
Google Maps’ ever-expanding streetview feature has long allowed for hours of mindless exploration and the occasional gem. It even played a vital role in the scavenger hunt that revealed Pottermore’s name back in 2011. Now, anybody with internet connection can explore Diagon Alley as it appears in the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.
Users can click through the iconic area to their heart’s content, using the 360° feature to look at all the details the facades offer. Ever wanted a closer look at the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes window displays or the owls at Eeylops Owl Emporium? This is your chance.
Short of flying out to the London tour, this is the most immersive Diagon Alley experience around until the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion opens next summer.
