LONDON BRIDGE

Two different London locations were used in the Harry Potter Films as the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban the Leaky Cauldron moved from Leadenhall Market to this location in Borough Market. It was outside the doorway of this flower shop that the Knight Bus pulled up and caused the alarm on a parked car to go off.

Harry Potter then got off the bus and went in to the Leaky Cauldron, although the interior shots were done on a film set not here.

It was on this corner, at the junction, of Scotland Place and Great Scotland Yard, that Harry and Mr Weasley enter the phone box in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix to descend into the Ministry of Magic.
