The two stores, a 42-44 Cockburn Street and 40 Victoria Street are located within walking distance from several key inspirations for the wizarding world including Victoria Street itself, which was the inspiration for Diagon Alley, the bustling main street of the wizarding world. Nearby is the Museum on the Mound, a former bank which inspired Gringotts.
