Half-Term Road Trip | Lacock and Harry Potter

During our day in Lacock, we spent several hours discovering which areas of the village had appeared in the Harry Potter series of films.  My Goddaughter had come along with us and came prepared with her robe and wand.  As you do.DSC_0243.JPGThat’s her, outside James and Lily Potter’s house in Godric’s Hollow.  The house appeared in Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone (2001).DSC_0260The Boy Child borrowed said robe and wand to pose outside the house used as Professor Slughorn’s home in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009).  When I asked ‘Hermione’ if she’d like her photo taken as well, she replied, “No, I didn’t go to Professor Slughorn’s house.”  Silly me.   DSC_0257The Sign of the Angel appeared as a backdrop in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009).DSC_0282.JPG

DSC_0289.JPGOver in the Abbey Cloisters (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001) and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), we caused consternation to a group of visitors who came around the corner and discovered both ‘Harry’ and ‘Hermione’ striding along as if on their way to Transfiguration.

The two of them have already decided that next time we visit, both will have their robes and wands and that they will have recruited ‘Ron’ to join them.

  1. OH HARRY POTTER anything! What a wonderful treat to visit the places used for the movies & I like the students in the their hall stride photos – classic! I also keep my wand at the ready, must add my robe! To amuse myself, I created a Harry Potter scavenger hunt & set to find as many things locally that could represent things in the books; so far my Whooping Willow & Hippogrif have been the best finds.
