So, the last blog post was an overview of all the Harry Potter sightings we want to do. So far, we have done 4 of them. 10 more to go!
So, we went to London Zoo as previously posted and saw 1. Reptile House, London Zoo
On one afternoon wandering around London, we also went to try and find 4. Gringott’s Bank, London. My instructions had been to go to Australia House, the Australian embassy in London. Well, we got there, and it turns out that it was the *interior* of the building that was used for Gringott’s Bank. And the place was closed to the public. Not happy!
So, that was pretty disappointing. But what was more pleasing was finding the place where the 2b. Entry to the Leaky Cauldron, London for the third movie was filmed. We had to wander around Borough Market over near London Bridge until we found a flower shop.
I assure you, Rob was excited as I was to find the spot. It meant he could go home and watch the afternoon world cup football match.
The 4th Harry Potter sighting we’ve had so far is of 14. The Elephant House, Edinburgh which we saw when we were in Edinburgh for a few days. We were pretty knackered that day so didn’t go in for a coffee, though I did do when my family and I went in 2005. It was a pretty busy cafe, not that there was much competition in the area, but we weren’t the only tourist looking to get a photo either. Brilliant. Website: The Elephant House
So, 4 Harry Potter sightings down, and 10 to go! I’m quite looking forward to this to-do list. Should encourage good travelling around the country too.
Until next blog post,
