These Are The Real Places Were ‘Harry Potter’ Was Filmed

‘ Harry Potter ‘ is one of the most beloved book sagas of recent years. Created by JK Rowling, the magical universe created by the British author has crossed borders and has marked generations of boys and girls who dream of living a similar adventure.

During all these years, many media have echoed what Rowling’s real inspirations were to create this world but, discovering certain inaccuracies, the writer has decided to make clear once and for all that the real places are inspired to create the saga and where the idea was born.

“I’m thinking of doing a section on my website about all those Potter inspirations and birthplaces. I had been writing Harry Potter for a long time before I set foot in that cafe.

So it’s not the birthplace, but I did write in him so we left him “The Elephant House Cafe in Edinburgh has long been believed to be the birthplace of ‘ Harry Potter‘.

But Rowling has made it clear that she is not. In fact where he started writing the idea was in a small flat next to the Clapham Junction station in London.

Harry takes the train to Hogwarts at King’s Cross station. (The fantastic exterior shot in The Chamber of Secrets (2002) is actually near the St. Pancras International Station.)

Inside the glass-roofed train station, on a pedestrian bridge over the tracks, Hagrid gives Harry a train ticket. Harry heads to platform 9¾, where he and his new friend Ron magically push their luggage carts through a brick pillar between the platforms, emerging on a hidden platform.

(For a fun photoshoot, head to Runway 9 of King’s Cross Station to find the Platform 9 sign, the luggage cart that looks like it’s disappearing on the wall, a Harry Potter gift shop … and await 30 minutes online for the photo itself.)

A red steam train, the Hogwarts Express, speeds the children through the (Scottish) countryside to Hogwarts, where Harry will spend the next seven years.
