Filmmakers adore its ornate roof structure and general sense of grandeur, which is why you might recognise it as Diagon Alley from ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’. It also featured in Terry Gilliam’s fantasy flick ‘The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus’ and Erasure’s ‘Love to Hate You’ music video.
