A British author J.K. Rowling who wrote the Harry Potter Series with have inspired by a delayed train which is from Manchester to London at 1990 have inserted into this novel as one of the best novels in the world. The first film of the series that was published after that in 2001 is Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by Warner Bros moved the story to success quickly.
Here is the Harry Potter!
Even though the virtual scenes of the film was taken at The Warner Bros Studios in the northwest of London, the United Kingdom’s other regions like Oxford and Scotland were used as a film location too. London's city centre gets the biggest role among these.
I have followed the Harry Potter's adventure and discovered the Muggle World places one by one in London for you.

Here we go!
King’s Cross Station
The King’s Cross train station which forming the nub of the story is the one number place of the Harry Potter's fans in London. Because The trains which go to Hogwarts depart from the “Platform 9 3/4" in this train station.
Please note that we see a virtual world in most of the film scenes which created by using different places. You can see a good example of that in this train station. Because the trains in the film scenes were taken at a different train station called as York which is far away from London.
"The King's Cross" which have experienced the most thrilling scenes of the film, and also it is very busy every day, offers the unforgettable world for whole fans with the Harry Potter shop store. You can find here all things from wands to stuffies which belong to this special world.
There is a quite different surprise which waiting for you on the outer wall of the store as to. You can immortalise your special moment thereby having one's photo taken like as in pass from the wall into the "Platform 9 3/4"
St. Pancras International Train Station
The St. Pancras International Train Station is another wonderful building that you can see when after go out from the King’s Cross. Here is known as a point that Weasley's magical car Ford Anglia has flown on the Chamber of Secrets. Also, some the film scenes were filmed at here too.
"Grimmauld Place" which has a close distance to these train stations was used as 12 numbered house which belongs to "Sirius Black" family.
We saw this place, which is at Claremont Square, in the film scenes of "the Order of the Phoenix" for the first time. The door on across of this house which used in the film is locked. That is to say, unfortunately, there is no given footprint to Harry Potter's fans in this area.
Diagon Alley and The Leaky Cauldron
Diagon Alley which Harry Potter had been shopping to getting ready for "Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry" and buying his first wand, plus the transfer gate is "The Leaky Cauldron", are the virtual places that created with inspired by different locations of London.
The atmosphere of "Cecil Court" and "Goodwin's Court" which has a close distance to Leicester Square, that is one of the famous squares of London, was being major roles in Diagon Alley’s scenes. Especially, the "Goodwin's Court" which is a narrow street has become one of most fascinating places for me.
Also, two different places were used for "The Leaky Cauldron" in neither two films. The first one is the Bull’s Head Passage in Leadenhall Market that was used in the film scenes of the Philosopher's Stone. Leadenhall which is a pretty impressive place plays a part in a lot of scenes of the film. For this reason, you can come across with a Harry Potter fan at here definitely.
Another entrance is this place that at Borough Market was used in the film scenes of "the Prisoner of Azkaban". Right next to it is a bar called The Market Porter. This place was used as Third Hand Book Emporium on the film.
Tower Bridge and London City Hall
We see the Tower Bridge in one of the scenes of “the Order of the Phoenix” that Harry Potter had been flying over there via his broomstick. The London City Hall alighted on another side of this bridge was used in the film scenes of the Half-Blood Prince. This place is not special just for fans, also all every tourist visit there in London.
The Millennium Bridge and St. Paul Cathedral
The Millennium Bridge and St. Paul Cathedral that was used in most films too is one of the most famous symbols of London. This cathedral was used with own geometrical stairs in the film scenes of the Prisoner of Azkaban for the first time, and after was used as a view in the film scenes of the Half-Blood Prince with Millennium Bridge.
Gringotts Wizarding Bank - Australia House
The Gringotts Wizarding Bank is another place which affecting us with own atmosphere. In this part, even though the outdoor scenes is not a real place, the indoor scenes were filmed in this building called as Australia House. Unfortunately, you can't get enjoyment from this place nowadays because of this building is forbidden to enter except consular affairs and other official operations. Moreover, even if you entered into, you can't take a photo inside due to security reason.
"The Piccadilly Circus" which has huge advertising screens is the most colourful square of the Central London was used in the scenes of “the Deathly Hallows”.
Harry, Hermione and Ron were crushing hazard by London's famous double-decker buses in the film's scene in right here. The differences between the scenes and real area might be quite amazed you.
Great Scotland Yard
Harry had been entering into the Ministry of Magic from inside of the famous red telephone box of London in the scenes of the Half-Blood Prince at a place called as Great Scotland Yard. Even though there was a second bridge at right here in the scene of the film, there is no such a bridge there in real life.
Another situation which makes fans sad is also the red telephone box was brought as temporary for the film. This means that unfortunately there is no telephone box right here to take a photo at the present time.
But if you wish, you can pose as Ron like me.
Westminster Tube Station
You must be remembered that Harry had stopped when he tries to pass ticket barriers in the scenes of the Order of the Phoenix. This misfortune of Harry was filmed at Westminster tube station which is quite busy at the present time.
The Lambeth Bridge which has a close distance to Westminster was used in an action scene in the film. The Knight Bus had been weaving through two classic red busses of the London.
This Bridge was used frequently in the other famous movies too, it's not just Harry Potter movies. You can walk in between pink tones of colours thereby looking at the two famous symbols of London are Westminster Palace and London Eye.
