Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home

Finally, my sister and I got to see the place where magic was made; Leavsden Studios, where all the eight Harry Potter movies were filmed. And it was, of course, magical. I will definitely visit again.

I took around two hundred pictures, but I feel you get most out of the experience by actually visiting it yourself. So if you ever have the opportunity, go!

The entrance to the Great Hall. My heart skipped a beat.

The Mirror of Erised.

Dumbledore's magical things.

The entrance to the Chamber of Secrets. We wore matching dresses for the occasion (and I had my self-knitted Gryffindor-scarf).

Rain was pouring down when we went in, but when we came outside for a Butterbeer it was sunny and warm.

It tasted quite nice, actually.

Hogwarts Bridge.

Weasley's Ford Anglia!

The Potter's home in Godric's Hollow, aftermath of the back-firing curse. 

And Luna's amazing hat.

Ollivanders shop in Diagon Alley. Could have stayed here a lot longer. Wished I could visit all these places and touch everything and buy things and for it all to just be real.

Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour and the book shop Flourish & Blotts.

Home. Always.

City of Durham

On the way back from Edinburgh we stopped in a little English town called Durham.

The great and majestetic Durham Cathedral.

A creepy doorknocker. Is it a lion? Is it a monkey? 

The cathedral was huuuge.

The inner yard, which might look familiar to certain people...

Recognise it yet? No?

How about now?

Black and white for a little more Hogwartsian effect. So yes, some of the Harry Potter-films were filmed here!


I love love love these old houses.

Love the different colours aswell.

The narrowest lane I've ever seen!

Then the rain came down and the bus took as back to Nottingham. 
A very nice little trip.

Last day in Edinburgh

After Arthur's Seat, I walked around town for a bit. 

Cheese and lemonade. And haggis, of course.

Found Cockburn Street, another beautiful place Hille had mentioned. 

Cute little shops with wonderful things inside. Would love to work in one like this!

All great things in one window!

Kilts, Maggie Dickson's Whisky and Ale house (Miss Dickson presumably came back to life after being executed), and Edinburgh Castle in the distance. 

And that was all. Thank you, Edinburgh! Next we went to the sweet little town of Durham, and I have some pictures from there aswell. Will put them up later on. Today I'm going to London with my sister! Yaaay!
