Three of the six Northeastern England Potter Places receive Great-Site Ratings.
Alnwick Castle (Site #44) is loaded with recognizable Harry Potter film sites, including the very young Harry Potter's first lesson on a broom, his initial foray into the game of Quidditch, and where Harry and Ron land the flying Ford Anglia in the Whomping Willow.
Durham Cathedral (Site #45) has additional Quidditch practice sites, the Chapter House used as the setting for Professor McGonagall's classroom and the passageway where Harry was able to trick Lucius Malfoy into freeing his house elf, Dobby.
The Goathland Railway Station (Site #46) was the inspiration for Hogsmeade Station where Hogwarts students departed for the summer. Goathland was also the film site for the British police drama Heartbeat, which used blue Ford Anglias just like Mr. Weasley's flying car, as police vehicles. Happily, there are many models still parked around town for Potterites to see.
