Just like you, we are also obsessed with the Harry Potter series. And we understand how important and rewarding it is for any Potterhead to actually visit the locations where the franchise was shot. So, in an attempt to keep last week’s promise, here are the other locations that every Potterhead must include in their itinerary while touring UK.
Form the size of the list, we know that it will be extremely difficult for anyone (unless you have a private jet) to cover all these locations in one trip as they are scattered all over the country. So, we suggest that you divide and thoroughly plan your trips in order to soak in the vibe that you will experience at every location.
Also, if you are reading this article for the first time and are wondering if we have missed out on iconic locations, then don’t you worry, we have covered all the remaining ones in Part I. So, don’t forget to check that out!
