Although we visited some of these locations on our own, most of the ones around London are available as a bus or walking tour as well. We recommend doing the London Warner Bros. Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter and taking the Harry Potter Walking Tour of London if you are looking for the movie magic feeling with your adventure in the United Kingdom. If you’re a really adventurous person and want to explore the highlights of England, Scotland, and Ireland within a two week period, check out the England, Scotland and Ireland tour as well!

The Horcrux Cave

The Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare, The Republic of Ireland

Dumbledore apparates Harry and himself to a small island just outside of these caves. While the island was placed here using CGI for the film, the island actually does exist - just not in this location! The island is called “Lemon Rock” and is not too far away, just between the shoreline and the Skellig Islands. Rumor has it that Lucasfilm asked the Wizarding World team where that island actually was located, and when they shared that it was “Lemon Rock”, the Star Wars team checked it out and selected the nearby Skellig Micheal for their Jedi Temple. You can see it on the left hand side of a picture  here . Although we saw it with our own eyes, we couldn’t get close enough for a decent photo.
