More Clues that give away Harry Potter expansion

Excuse the pun - but is this 'concrete evidence' to the new Harry Potter Expansion being specifically the 'London' setting from the movies?

Just spotted that the work on the new lakeside wall, very much resembles the design of riverside wall of the River Thames in London?? See below

even the 'semi circular holes' where the ring in the 'lions head' hangs is almost identical (See Below)

You will also see below that it looks like the 'lion' head and the 'lamps' will go on the plinths set at regular intervals along the wall of the 'river thames'

The design of the curves and colour of Brick work all look very like the river walls of London

Nice shots! I do like the lion heads so that will look great.

I saw someone mention something about that on another website but they didn't have pics so I was a bit confused about what they meant,your pics make it nice and clear.I think everyone has felt it was a guarantee it was Potter for a while now but Universal apparently feels they'll lose money by announcing it with people postponing their vacations for when it opens.I think the same goes for Transformers,people were a bit unsure of what it would be for the first couple of weeks,I think it's almost unanimous it will be Transformers.

The old Amity area in the studios. Supposed to be connected to the present area via train.
