    The hidden gems include the real Diagon Alley from Harry Potter in central London, a roller coaster in the middle of a Wales forest, and a stunning lavender field in Kent. 

    Here, FEMAIL reveals the top secret travel spots social media users have managed to find tucked away in the UK. 

    Real Diagon Alley – Central London

    TikTok users from up and down the country have shared their favourite under-the-radar spots including hidden locations from Scotland, Wales, Essex and London, including a shopping street they have dubbed the ‘real’ Diagon Alley  

    While JK Rowling has said she had many inspirations for Harry Potter’s cobble stoned wizarding shopping area Diagon Alley, one of them can be found tucked away in Covent Garden. 

    In the children’s books, the entrance to London’s Diagon Alley sits on Charing Cross Road.

    Fans looking to uncover the hidden entrance in the area will be enchanted to find a quaint row of bookshops on the edge of Charing Cross Road and St Martin’s Lane.

    The road, called Cecil Court, is full of Victorian-style second hand bookshops and has been known as the new Booksellers’ Row since the 1930s. 

    The street is accessible 24-hours a day and it’s closest tube stop is Leicester Square Station. 

    Forest roller coaster – Wales  

    Meanwhile in another clip which has gone viral on the social media site, a user encouraged others to explore a treetop roller coaster in North Wales

    Meanwhile in another clip which has gone viral on the social media site, a user encouraged others to explore a treetop roller coaster in North Wales

    Nestled in the North Wales Conwy Valley, close to the iconic Snowdonia village of Betws y Coed, visitors can find a stunning treetop roller coaster. 

    The Fforest Coaster at Zip world is the UK’s only alpine coaster of its kind and tickets for the ride start at £20.00 and entitle you to three rides. 

    The rollercoaster takes brave visitors 365m up before plunging down 710m and travels up to 25mph.

    Those who can muster up enough courage to ride the alpine coaster can expect to spend around six minutes on the ride. 

    In order to avoid disappointment on arrival, Zip World recommends booking the rollercoaster in advance. 

    God’s Own Junkyard – East London

    This hidden neon paradise is located on an industrial estate in Walthamstow, East London and is home to funky art pieces made of lights and other eclectic pieces. 

    The art store has a cult following in London and Los Angeles, and uses pre-owned neon pieces, salvaged signs, old movie props and retro displays for their projects.

    Signs in the store have been used as props behind stars like Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut, Johnny Depp in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Jack Nicholson in Batman. 

    If that isn’t enough, the shop also features its own famous Rolling Scones Cafe, which serves food and drinks all weekend. 

    St Dunstan-in-the-East church garden – Central London

    St Dunstan-in-the-East was a parish church on St Dunstan's Hill, halfway between London Bridge and the Tower of London and is now a public garden

    St Dunstan-in-the-East was a parish church on St Dunstan’s Hill, halfway between London Bridge and the Tower of London and is now a public garden 

    St Dunstan-in-the-East was a parish church named after St Dunstan, who was a tenth century monk who became a popular saint in England.

    The church, which is located on St Dustan’s Hill, between London Bridge and the Tower of London, became badly damaged by the Great Fire of London and then largely destroyed in the Second World war.

    In 1967 the City of London turned the stunning ruins into a public park, with visitors able to stroll through the green space between 8am to 7pm on weekdays.

    The garden and ruins can even be hired for parties and wedding receptions. 

    Little Provence – Kent 

    Visitors seeking a little flower power can find the striking fields of purple at Kent's Castle Farm, which  is just outside London

    Visitors seeking a little flower power can find the striking fields of purple at Kent’s Castle Farm, which  is just outside London 

    Adventurous Londoners may think they can only access sweeping fields of lavender in the south of France but thanks to a farm just outside the city, they can actually find the areas a lot closer to home. 

    Visitors seeking a little flower power can find the striking fields of purple at Kent’s Castle Farm. 

    Just outside Sevenoaks, visitors can find an idyllic summer day out, with purple lavender covering the fields from late June until the end of July. 

    Castle Farm is the largest lavender farm in the UK and is owned by farmers William and Caroline Alexander. 

    Tours usually run until the end of July, so sadly you’ll have to wait until next year to enjoy this stunning location. 

    Mersea Island beach – Essex

    Mersea Island’s sunny South facing beach in Essex overlooks Blackwater Estuary and features the Victoria Esplanade lined with multi-coloured beach huts 

    Those who are missing the feeling of sand between their toes this year could explore Mersea Island’s sunny south facing beach in Essex, which overlooks Blackwater Estuary.

    The sand and shingle beach spans all the way from the houseboats on Coast Road in West Mersea to East Mersea Point. 

    The stretch also features the Victoria Esplanade lined with some very Instagrammable multi-coloured beach huts. 

    It’s nearest town is West Mersea and visitors can wile away the hours by crabbing off one of the jetties, or even try their hand at water sports.
