The Leaky Cauldron pub is built

Daisy Dodderidge founded the Leaky Cauldron along what was then a country lane outside of London as a place where both Muggles and Wizardfolk could congregate. The back alley of the pub eventually became a magical gateway into Diagon Alley.

Over the centuries, the Leaky Cauldron became enfolded into the ever-expanding metropolitan area of London. By the mid-18th century, the pub was part of Greater London, along either Crown or Castle streets, which in 1877 were merged, widened, and modernized into Charing Cross Road.
