Charing Cross Road
Location information

Charing Cross Road is a street in London, England. Although it is a Muggle area, the Leaky Cauldron is located on this street, and thus wizards and witches can access Diagon Alley by passing through the inn. It is relatively close to the Muggle street Tottenham Court Road. Blockbuster was amongst the shops that could be found on this road as well as Charing Cross Books and Circle.



In 1991, Harry Potter and Rubeus Hagrid came to Charing Cross Road to access Diagon Alley on Harry's eleventh birthday. [1]
