BEEN THERE, DONE THAT: Platform 9 3/4 in King's Cross Station, London, U.K. When I went over to ask a train station attendant worker how to find this spot, I love that he automatically knew where to send me even before I asked the question. "How did you know?" I asked. "You were smiling", he answered. Awesome!!!

Potterheads who love history, fun book and movie facts, and endless amounts of Harry Potter memorabilia should — no, must — visit these themed spots all over the world. From majestic castles and train rides over rolling Scottish hillsides to historic hotels and secret wizarding shops, Muggles fulfilling this Harry Potter travel bucket list will be entirely convinced that magic truly does exist.

Harry Potter.

"Where the idea for Harry Potter actually came from, I really couldn’t tell you. I was traveling on a train between Manchester and London and it just popped into my head. I spent four hours thinking about what Hogwarts would be like – the most interesting train journey I’ve ever taken. By the time I got off at King’s Cross, many of the characters in the books had already been invented" - JK Rowling
