Once affectionately known as "Flicker Alley," due to its role in hosting early film companies, it also boasts a unique connection to musical genius. The passage was home to eight-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart for 4-months during his 1764 European tour. There are even modern accounts that suggest Cecil Court might have been the place where Mozart composed his very first symphony.
Now it is home to a captivating array of shop sellers, offering a diverse range of treasures. From rare collectables, handcrafted jewellery, and exquisite art pieces to literary wonders, unique curiosities, antique maps and more, Cecil Court has transformed into a world of captivating finds.
Continuing its legacy, Cecil Court's allure extends to Harry Potter enthusiasts through daily tours, offering them a tangible connection to one of the inspirations behind Diagon Alley (the enchanted shopping district of the wizarding world, where magic wands are bought and sold).
This historic London destination has blossomed into a realm where every step yields a new discovery, making it a must-visit destination for history enthusiasts and curious souls alike.
