Quaint Village in Basement Gives New Meaning to ‘Townhouse’
If you’ve ever visited Diagon Alley™ in Universal Orlando, you may have found yourself enchanted by the charming shops, authentic English pub, and cobblestone streets. Now imagine having the ability to be transported to another world simply by heading down to your basement?

If you’ve grown bored with one of the upstairs bedrooms, simply sneak away to this inn right in your very own basement! If breakfast is included, we’d like to make a reservation.
Not what you were expecting from that refined exterior, right?
If you could cultivate a tiny town in your basement, what shops and surprises would line your streets?
