There’s a new tour in town, and this one is a must-do for any Harry Potter fan. In a memorably magical day dedicated to all things wizarding, you’ll explore iconic Harry Potter film locations, starting in York, taking in Durham Cathedral and the North York Moors Railway and ending back in Diagon Alley (sorry, The Shambles).
First you’ll travel to Durham Cathedral to see the elegant cloisters which became the snow-covered quadrangle where Harry set off his owl flying in the first film. Marvel at the location where Ron vomited slugs in The Chamber of Secrets and explore the cathedral’s chapter house, also known as Professor McGonagall’s classroom.
You’ll then continue to Grosmont Station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway where you’ll climb aboard a heritage steam train and travel to Goathland Station. You’ll recognise it as the original Hogsmeade Station where Harry travelled on board the iconic Hogwarts Express from King’s Cross Station’s Platform 9 ¾.
And that’s not all! As well as seeing the original film locations, you’ll have a light lunch at Grosmont station and receive Magical Money to buy a souvenir. You’ll have pictures with a snowy owl at the Hole of Horcum and then travel back to York where you’ll visit the famous Shambles wizard shop, The Shop That Must Not Be Named. It sounds like a spell-binding day out. Visit www.wizardbustour.com for more details or watch the video. Fancy booking tickets? Use the code Vikings25 for a 25% discount. You’re welcome.
