MANILA, Philippines – Hogwarts acceptance letter got lost in the mail? Out of floo powder? Broke your broom? A muggle? No worries, wizards and non-magical folk alike may now enjoy the World of Harry Potter with the internet as their portkey. 

Diagon Alley, the wizarding words’s shopping district, has recently been added on Google Street View, making it the first fictional place to be featured on the map, reports Daily Mail.

Shops from the well-loved series such as Olivander’s Wand Shop, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Wizarding Bank, and many others are clearly visible in the virtual tour.

Diagon Alley is located in the Warner Brothers Studios in London, where most of the films were shot. 

WIZARD SHOPPING NEEDS. Wands, brooms, robes and wizard trinkets all here

Street View may be limited to outside the shops, but the virtual tour also allows 360-degree views of the Warner Brothers Studios’ entrance.

The Amazon jungle, Battleship Island (“Skyfall”), the Smithsonian, Stonehenge, The Whitehouse, and other beautiful sites all over the globe may also be explored through Google.

Real-life tours are currently held in the Studios as well as in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios, Florida, USA.
