It's the main street in the Harry Potter books. :) Looks very similar.

Carolyn I googled it and I must say that you are right,  who knows maybe they modeled it after this street.

I think I am in the minority I haven't read any of the Potter books nor have I seen the movies.  My kids have and loved them, I have them all sitting in my library, or book closet.  Some day I might break down and read them.

Wouldn't that be a fun shopping trip??

Letty, you should listen to Harry Potter.  Jim Dale is a marvelous reader.  I have all 7 books on audio at my library; I have adults who check them out over and over...

I have actually been there!  The walled city, it was incredible.  I have friends nearby in Wales, now I want to go back to visit.
