Walking along the real Diagon Alley
Harry Potter fans will recognize Leadenhall Market from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, where it stood in as the area of London near The Leaky Cauldron and Diagon Alley. And there is something magical about this ornate Victorian covered market in London’s Square Mile. Dating from the 14th century, the current cobbled floor and ornate glass roof were designed in 1881, although it was originally built over the site of the center of Roman London. It’s primarily a food market, and from Monday to Friday food stalls fill the gaps between the permanent restaurant and independent shops of this limelight-stealing historic market building.
