Once again this will be long and photo-heavy, but worth it (I hope!).
The A to Z Tour of Harry Potter Film Locations takes us back up north to Durham City in County Durham. Today's C is the Cathedral and Castle.
Not too far south of Alnwick ('A') is the historic city of Durham. The city sits on the banks of the River Wear and is built on seven different hills (or so it is claimed). Atop the tallest hill are the rather impressive Castle and Cathedral, separated by the Palace Green. Both the Castle and Cathedral are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
For those of you who are Potter fans, however, there is plenty to see as the Cathedral appeared in the first two Harry Potter films as both corridors and courtyards.
