Book Two – OWLs: Oxford Wizarding Locations


Four Must-See Harry Potter Places are Found in Oxford’s City Centre.
Home to some of the most recognizable of all Harry Potter Places, Oxford is easily visited via public transportation from London.

Christ Church College (Site #31)
Seen in all eight Harry Potter movies, the Hogwarts Great Hall set is an almost-exact reproduction of Christ Church College’s Dining Hall. Actual location filming for Sorcerer’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets took place here, as well.

New College (Site #32)
Several Goblet of Fire courtyard scenes were shot here, including the incident when Mad-Eye Moody turned Draco Malfoy into a white ferret.

The Bodleian Library (Site #30) contains two Potter Places:

  • Duke Humfrey’s Library where Hogwarts’ Library scenes were shot.
  • The Divinity School where Hogwarts’ Infirmary scenes were filmed, as well as Goblet of Fire dance lessons.

A Fifth Potter Film Site is a Mere 8 Miles Northwest of Oxford:
Blenheim Palace (Site #29)

Order of the Phoenix flash-back scenes of young Severus Snape being bullied by James Potter and his entourage (Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew) were shot on the shore of Blenheim Palace’s lake, near a readily recognizable tree.
