Google Street View Maps The Fictional Locations Of Harry Potter

Google Street View Maps The Fictional Locations Of Harry Potter

The oddities and magic of the Diagon Alley set at Warner Brothers Studio in London is now available for all to see.

Here is a mind boggling combination of three worlds: fantasy, virtual and the real. The fictional world of Harry Potter is recreated in the set of the Warner Bros. Studio in London and since not all of us can afford flight tickets to London, Google has brought Diagon Alley to the virtual world of Google Street View Maps.

Diagon Alley- Google

The tour of the wizarding world’s buzzing street is a great addition to the other exotic virtual tours that the web giant offers. You can also go on virtual trips to the Grand Canyon, UNESCO World Heritage sites like The Hiroshima Peace Memorial and also the famous Louvre Museum.

This is yet another example of how we’re using the Internet and the online social sphere to explore the physical world that’s beyond our wallets’ reach. With this addition to their virtual Street View maps, Google is reconstructing and extending the purpose of maps.

Google Maps isn’t only about directions and which way points north.┬áIt’s about putting as much of the physical world and all its relevant information online so that maps mimic the physical experience of simply walking on any given street or seeing something as fabulous as the Louvre for the first time.
