Google has alohomora'd a way for everyone (even muggles) to visit Diagon Alley without the need for magic wands. You can now explore the famous Harry Potter set at Warner Bros. London studio via Street View, and virtually visit its shops like Ollivander's or the garishly colored Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes. It's not the first Street View location within a building -- in fact, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello residence is now open for digital visitors -- but movie sets are a rare treat. This is probably the next best thing for those who want to see Diagon Alley in person but can't fly to London, even though the studio lights and the green screen behind Gringotts could ruin childhoods. Unless, of course, Schmidt, Page and Brin are actually wizards who added those final touches to make a real magical marketplace look fake.
