It’s that heady time again, folks – when those of us who wish there was a tad more magic in the world froth with excited happiness at the release of a new Harry Potter movie. If you’re headed to Old Blighty and are rather fond of a certain wizardly young man with an unruly mop of black hair, then you should seriously consider a spot of Harry Potter sightseeing. The movies were filmed in some truly beautiful places, from achingly pretty Scottish lochs and mountainscapes to exquisitely elaborate Gothic cathedrals, abbeys and cloisters.
I’ve taken the liberty of plotting some of the sites where the movies were filmed on Google Maps, with notes on each.
