After wondering on the weekend if perhaps I wasn’t such a big fan of Harry Potter after I saw Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station but declined to join the long queue for a photo, I went on a walking tour in the City of London of Harry Potter film locations to convince myself otherwise. These were some of the highlights.

On top of the Monument to the Great Fire of London is the Goblet of Fire
