The Capital has a strong relationship with the magical Harry Potter world. As well as JK Rowling penning some of her famous novels in the city where she still lives, it is thought the author condured up some of her characters’ names form gravestones in Greyfriars Kirkyard - while Victoria Street is believed to have inspired the magical Diagon Alley shop.

The Pop Up Geeks recently set up a Stranger Things-themed bar called ‘The Upside Down’ as well as a Game of Thrones bar called ‘Blood and Wine’.
