Australia House & Harry Potter



Australia House & Harry Potter

Harry Potter's Bank...'Gringotts Bank' from the film series

Location: Strand, WC2B 4LA

Description: Leaving Trafalgar Square and going east along the Strand for a few minutes we arrive at the old Aldwych station.

On the north side opposite the station, on the corner, is Australia House.

Just a minute, say Potter fans, this is Gringotts Bank!!

Of course they would be correct.

Gringotts Wizarding Bank is the only bank of the wizarding world, and is owned and operated by goblins. It was created by a goblin called Gringott. Its main offices are located in North Side, Diagon Alley in London, England. In addition to storing money and valuables for wizards and witches, one can go there to exchange Muggle money for wizarding money. According to Rubeus Hagrid, other than Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Gringotts is the safest place in the wizarding world.
