Since the first release of the Harry Potter books in 1997 these stories have enthralled audiences both young and old. Though not loved by everyone the Harry Potter phenomenon is known across the globe. Everyone in my family has read at least one of the books and I know when I first picked up the Philosophers Stone it was finished in no time at all.
Now with the last books finally making it onto the screen millions of fans will be flocking to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Previewed in London on 11th November the film is one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the year. However, with the second instalment not due until the middle of next year what is there left for a Harry Potter fan to do.
Do not fear though as many of the films iconic buildings and astounding scenery can be found right here in the UK. Home to Platform 9 ¾ and the Leaky Cauldron there are plenty of Harry Potter tours to entertain in the Capital. While the colleges of Oxford and Durham Cathedral both contributed to the hidden workings of Hogwarts magical school. Perhaps I’ll head north and revel in the beautiful countryside of Glencoe.
What other magical films do you love and have you been to their locations? With the next film in the Narnia series due out in December perhaps a trip to New Zealand and Australia is called for.
