Highlands, Scotland

As seen in: Harry Potter (2001-2011)

Visitors to the Scottish Highlands can literally take the Harry Potter route. The Hogwarts Express that carries Harry, Ron and Hermione to their majestic school of magic travels across the Glenfinnan Viaduct, which is used by real passenger trains along the West Highland line. Furthermore, Harry battles a dragon during the Triwizard Tournament at Steal Falls, a waterfall at the base of Ben Nevis mountain. Most of the Hogwarts interiors—the ascending stone staircase, the cavernous dining hall—were shot a few hours south of the Scottish border in Oxford, England.
