Recommendation: meh 4.36 / 5 from 38 reviews

Out of all the Harry Potter sets i have bought (All parts of minifigure castle, Hogwarts Castle, Hogwarts Express, Night Bus, Hagrids Hut). This has to be the best one yet, the play ability with multiple buildings from the iconic street of Diagon Alley. The set is perfect as a display model on my shelf. If you have 2 or more children this set is perfect as a joint present as it would distract them for hours a day and they would enjoy it at levels I can't explain. Anyone who buys this will never regret it. The only problem i can think of is how its a metre long and therefore people would struggle to find a display location, other than that it is perfect in every way. Would recommend to any Advanced Lego Builder or higher!!!

Recommendation: yes 4 / 5 by Oky

I had a magical time building this set while rewatching all the movies and the end result looks amazing. It's a great combination of scenes from different movies to give you a timeless recreation of this iconic location from the world of Harry Potter. The fact that you can easily integrate it with the modular buildings is a nice option and finding the secret bonus set inside was a very peasant surprise.

Recommendation: yes by Rob

Every aspect of design is carefully considered, every brick included is needed, and every possible detail relating to the story, characters and location has been captured in 75978 Diagon Alley. In many ways, it's just like every other LEGO Harry Potter set for achieving that, but, on a truly massive and unique scale.

Recommendation: meh by Tim Johnson

Diagon Alley is a great set. I had a lot of fun while building. The shops are often just bricks on bricks, but with enough details and interesting techniques sprinkled in to make it an entertaining build. Especially if you are into Harry Potter, the shops bring back the memories from the movies and the scenes that werw played there. Here and there the set has minor flaws, but I feel like there are also exceptionally good sections to make up for it. Whether it's worth the £369.99 / US$399.99 is hard to say. That's just a lot of money, but you will also get a lot of bricks in return.

Recommendation: meh by CapnRex101

Almost one hundred Harry Potter sets have become available since 2001 and 75978 Diagon Alley is undoubtedly among my favourite examples! Each building includes exceptional detail and demonstrates tremendous accuracy when compared with the movies. The distribution of references throughout the set is equally enjoyable, although I believe there are some missed opportunities for even more.
