This subway map is your guide to the magical world of 'Harry Potter'
You hop off the train at King’s Cross Station, and now what? If you’ve just come back from a semester at Hogwarts, you’re more than likely on your way home, but that might not be your first stop. There are hundreds of different places you can travel to in the Wizarding World, and according to the clever people at Mashable, they’re all accessible by subway. Or as Harry might call it, the Tube.
They’ve modified a map of London’s underground Tube system to include Harry Potter locations instead. The only location that really transfers from real London to Harry Potter‘s world is King’s Cross Station, which actually is a real place (but you probably knew this, because you’ve probably begged your parents to take you there before so you, too, can pretend to go to Platform 9 3/4). As for everything else, it’s gotten a Harry Potter-approved update.
The proximity between locations closely resembles their locations in the book. Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, and The Forbidden Forest are all relatively close together, just like they are in the books/movies. Same thing goes for Diagon Alley, Knockturn Alley, and Gringotts.
Transferring lines, you can head over to The Burrow or Malfoy Manor. One place you don’t want to go, seeing as how its the end of the line? Azkaban.
Check out the enchanted map below, but maybe don’t rely on it next time you’re exploring London.
