St Pancras International

You can come here by night if you really want to have an amazing experience.
Reptile House at London Zoo
This location became famous because here Harry first discovered his gift for being able to talk to snakes in the first movie of the series. However, it is worth mentioning that this is only a small part of the Zoo, and there are other 650 different animal species worth visiting as soon as you get there.
Another amazing place in London that has a lot to do with the Harry Potter film series is Leadenhall market, which was used in the first movie as Diagon Alley. What is more, here you can also find the Leaky Cauldron, the entrance to the wizard’s pub, which in reality is an optician located in Bull’s Head Passage. The Victorian style in which Leadenhall Market was designed takes you to an enchanting, different world.
This place appeared in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, where Hermione, Ron and Harry are fighting against Death Eaters. The scene happening in the middle of Piccadilly Circus is quite tensed since the Muggles are not supposed to know about the existence of the wizarding world. This area has plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants to spend more time after taking many photos.
