Really nothing to do with Diagon Alley, but with only about five sets dedicated to representing it, a wider a variety of sets must be used to make this list truly functional.

Anyway, place down the gate (open without a chain and locks) and have it mirror Ollivander's. Put Borgin and Burke's down facing the same way as Gringott's is but on the other side of the fence. Put some of the items such as the tree, skeletons, and bats in "Knockturn Alley."

Take out the (2011) Gringott's safe and put a cave like entrance as well as the rail tracks. Have it reach both of the safes (2011 and 2001). Build another and . . . .

Use the station as Eylop's Owl Emporium. Add the stand from 10217 to the interior. Also build a desk and owl stands. Put this building next to Ollivander's.

"Fix 'er up!" Remove the boards and skulls. Then take it of of it's basement. Use it as the pet shop (the Magical Menagerie, or somthing like that). Add typical Harry Potter animals to it (cats, spiders, snakes, and rats). Place it next to QQ.

Remove some details like the furniture, water wheel, signs, and fences. Add a door to the left side of the blue building. In the brown building, use the left side as Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment. Add the cauldrons to the inside and the cauldron sign from 10217 to the front of it. Also add anything HPish (in the themes early years there were many random printed tiles, those should suffice). Use the right side as Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes. Add. . .

Put the brown building next to Eylop's.

Now for the blue one. Use the Larger section as Madam Malkime's Robes for All Occaisions. Put a bunch of robes as well as Hogwarts Robes in there. Use the smaller section as Flourish and Blott's. Cherrypick as many books as possible for this shop. Make sure to include a cage trapping at least one . . .

Need two of this. Combine both buildings together to form a larger one, The Leaky Cauldron. Put this in the front and make sure it is facing the same way as Gringott's. A custom Tom the Innkeeper will be needed.

All you need is one of the dark grey baseplates. They are available on Pick-a-Brick for a lot less than $90. Use it in Knokturn Alley.
