Trafalgar Square, London

Emma Watson looked stunning as always, Daniel Radcliffe smiled awkardly, Rupert Grint screamed for a makeover, and thousands of adoring fans swarmed London for the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 -- held at Trafalgar Square, our Hot Spot of the Day.

Fans from all across the world came out in huge numbers to see their favorite fictional wizards (and muggles) take over the British capital. The good news: the whole cast was on hand, from Tom Felton Draco Malfoy to Alan Rickman (Snape). The bad: the mass of Pottaholics was greeted by a downpour of rain and heavy winds that left many fleeing their fake spectacles and robes for a raincoat and umbrella.

Trafalgar Square is one of London's many tourist attractions that has been around longer than most American cities. Known for its massive pigeon population, the square is also home to London's annual New Year's Eve celebration and a really large fountain that is extremely expensive to maintain. While the area has been home to heated political protests over the years, there was nothing but joy in the air as the Harry Potter cast called Trafalgar Square home for the day.
