About the Tour
Whip out your wands as we will take a magical journey visiting to Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, in the wonderful and beautiful city of Durham. We will capture the experience as wizards and witches, like Harry and his friends exploring the imposing and impressive grounds of Harry Potter Cathedral. The Cathedral in Durham is one of the greatest buildings in Europe that provided the incredible, magical interior and exterior location for Hogwarts for the first two installments of the Harry Potter films. There you’ll recognize the elegant cloisters of the cathedral where Harry releases Hedwig to fly and the very site of Ron’s slug vomiting scene! The chapter house in Durham Cathedral was also featured in the Harry Potter films as a classroom, for Professor McGonagall's class on animals and water goblets! The scenes with Fluffy the 3-headed dog was also filmed up on the second floor corridors of the Cathedral Tower, and even more locations that you will recognise.
In addition to Harry Potter Cathedral, we will be also enchanted by the wonderful city of Durham, surrounded by beautiful countryside, dramatic coastline and dotted with cultural treasures. This compact historic town, best explored on foot is famous for numerous interesting churches, bridges and fantastic attractions. You will be charmed by Durham’s timeless atmosphere, with the opportunity to delight in relaxing riverside walks and also indulge in the contrasting, buzzing vibrant contemporary culture of cafes, boutiques, galleries and museums in the city. You will most definitely enjoy exploring Durham University in Durham Castle, established in 1832 and known to be England’s third oldest university. There is simply so much to see and do, so be sure to soak in the serene surroundings of the Palace Green and enjoy the treasures of Durham University: Palace Green, Library, Durham Light Infantry Museum and Durham Art Gallery. Each treasure, laden with its own riches and finest collections of art and artifacts.
