A summary of our Harry Potter themed travels and a wish list for future Harry Potter destinations.
A thorough review of our family’s full day Harry Potter tour with London Taxi Tours including stops at Stonehenge, Lacock, Oxford and around London.
On April 5th, 2011 the Harry Potter Exhibition opened at Discovery Times Square (www.discoverytsx.com) in New York City on its final North American stop (mere days AFTER we had visited NYC for spring break). Discovery Times Square which bills itself as "more than a museum" is New York's first large-scale exhibition center. It is a vast space which once housed the New York Times printing presses and is located on W. 44th between Broadway and 8th.
Here's a place that my kids would love to visit. Alnwick Castle is located in the historic market town of Alnwick in the northeast of England about 450 km from London and is instantly recognizable as Hogwarts Castle from the Harry Potter movies. Alnwick Castle was built as a medieval fortress and has been the home of the Percys, Earls and Dukes of Northumberland since 1309. Today it is the second largest inhabited castle in England as it is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and their family.
