10. Freshwater West , Pembrokeshire, Wales
Freshwater west, a mind-freshening, wind swept, exposed beach is undoubtedly the most consistent surf spot in Wales. The Shell House there had been constructed as one of the sets for the final Harry Potter Film- Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
9. Reptile House, London Zoo
The Reptile House , London zoo is the place where Harry first discovers his art of being able to talk to snakes. If someone fancies talking to the snake Harry had talked with, they must visit the Reptile House once.
8. Gloucester Cathedral, England
The cathedral which has been a holy place since 1,300 years is the place where (in the movie) the Moaning Myrtle or the Nearly Headless Nick are sighted .Though you may not find any of them now, but if you walk in from an old wooden door which leads to the old crypt, you are most obvious to find it haunted by Monks from the old Gloucester monastery.
7. King’s Cross Station, London, England
“Excuse me sir, can you tell me how to get to platform 9- 3/4 ?” Asked harry and the conductor looked at him with all astonishment.
We don’t find any such platform in our stations, but in the world of Harry, it does exist. The platform 9 – 3/4,from where the Hogwarts Express departs is actually the wall between platform 4 and 5. The Kings Cross Station was filmed as a station from where the movie could get the scene of people boarding to Hogwarts express.
