The sea cave (Cliffs of Moher, Ireland)
The sea cave to which Dumbledore takes Harry to find the Horcrux in Half-Blood Prince is at the foot of the Cliffs of Moher, on the Atlantic coast of County Clare.
Where the Ford Anglia meets the Hogwarts Express (Glenfinnan Viaduct, Lochaber)
On their way to school, Harry and Ron almost crash the Ford Anglia into the Hogwarts Express on the Glenfinnan Viaduct. West Coast Railways run a Jacobite Steam Train during the summer on this track.
Hogwarts Library (Duke Humphrey’s Library, Oxford University)
The school library, where Harry researches Nicholas Flamel in Philosopher’s Stone, is located in Oxford’s Duke Humphrey’s Library, which is one of the special collections reading rooms at the Bodleian. In Chamber of Secrets, Hermione reads about Polyjuice Potion there, and in Half-Blood Prince Harry and Hermione discuss who to take to Slughorn’s Christmas party here.
