The Breathtaking Yorkshire Location That’s Known For Featuring In Harry Potter

Harry Potter was our childhood. We grew up with him, from when he was a first-year buying his school supplies down Diagon Alley, right up to his grand ol’ defeat of the Dark Lord. The franchise has now become a British Institution, and we show our children the Harry Potter films, and, in turn, they will show their children’s children.

The Potter franchise is quintessentially British. The cast is full of the UK’s finest actors and some of the most beautiful scenery that the country has to offer – some of which are in Yorkshire. One scene, in particular, set in the Yorkshire Dales, in the Deathly Hallows films, where Harry and Hermione discuss a plan is Malham Cove.

The cracked limestone creates a unique eerie landscape that is a perfect place for the scene that shows their isolation and hopelessness that the characters feel at the time. In reality, it’s an awe-inspiring viewpoint in which you can take in God’s Own Country.

One of Yorkshire’s most famous walking spots Malham has a number of fantastic walks on its doorstep. You can take in some beautiful sights without having to travel far from Malham, such as Janet’s Foss, Gordale Scar the cove and a big old hike away is Malham Tarn. After all those walks you can head back over to Malham and enjoy a pint of ale at one of its pubs.

Our favourite place to visit in Malham is Beck Hall. It has a beautiful beck that flows past it where you can enjoy a beer or a glass of wine after a look day of trekking the hills of The Dales.
