Fans of Harry Potter can be transported to the most magical shopping street in the world with a spellbinding new Lego set.
Lego's brick version of Diagon Alley is now available and sure to be a hit with followers of the boy wizard.
In the magical stories by JK Rowling, Diagon Alley is where Harry Potter gets his first glimpse of the exciting new world he is about to join, as he’s guided through the magical shopping street.
Measuring more than a metre wide and made up of over 5,000 pieces, Lego Diagon Alley features the famed wizarding world shops packed with authentic details from the movies.
Behind detailed storefronts lie fascinating features and familiar characters.
Fans can recreate some of their favourite moments from the Harry Potter films including discovering the wands at Ollivanders from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone; dropping in on Gilderoy Lockhart’s book-signing event at Flourish & Blotts from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets or obtaining a love potion from Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Marcos Bessa, Lego Harry Potter Design Lead, said: “I love how faithful the final design is to the architectural details in the film.
"You can barely see some of these buildings zooming past your screen, but we tracked down different photographs from the sets – some of them from nearly 20 years ago – to make sure everything is spot on.
"Diagon Alley is the biggest set I’ve designed to-date and I am really proud of how it has come together.”
The set also includes 14 minifigures, including new versions of lead characters Harry, Ron, Hermione and of course George and Fred Weasley who have their own joke shop in Diagon Alley.
There are also mini-figures of Florean Fortescue and the Daily Prophet photographer, who have never been seen in Lego form before.
It is priced at £369.99 and available at Lego stores.
