The Harry Potter books by J. K. Rowling, as well as the movies based on the series, continue to enchant millions twenty years after "Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone" was first published. It’s no surprise, then, that an entire travel industry has sprung up around the locations featured in the books and films, as well as other sites connected to the Boy Who Lived.
Thankfully, many of the places associated with Harry are well worth a visit. They range from gorgeous castles and amazing scenery to a critically acclaimed play and museum exhibition, most in locations so charming that even casual fans will enjoy stopping by.
This list isn’t comprehensive, as the films alone were shot in dozens of breathtaking places in the United Kingdom. But it does give an overview of every aspect of the Harry Potter world, so that fans can choose the places they’d most like to see. So hold tight to your racing brooms and have a Butterbeer at the ready, for we’re heading out on the ultimate Harry Potter trip.
