This houses the Australian High Commission along with other Australian federal and state government agencies including the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies, part of King's College, London. A major landmark in the Strand it was opened by King George V in August 1918. Its grand interior was used in "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" as the site of Gringotts Bank! Not a lot of people know that!!!
