Google has added one of the most memorable locations of the Harry Potter films to Google Street View: Diagon Alley, the place where wizards and witches in the Harry Potter universe can find everything they need. Spell books, potions, wands and brooms — it’s all there.

But Google isn’t suddenly mapping out fictional locations all of a sudden. The reason why Diagon Alley is explorable through Street View is because it’s actually a Warner Bros Harry Potter studio tour. So while it’s not exactly the magical place you might have imagined while reading the books or watching the films, it’s the closest thing we’ll ever get to the real thing because that’s where they filmed it.

If you’re a Muggle and always wanted to take a trip down Diagon Alley, you can do so at the link below:
