8. The Dining Hall
The historical architecture at Oxford’s Christ Church College was the fitting inspiration for Hogwarts’ grand dining hall. The high ceilings, long tables, dark wood accents, stone floors, painting-lined walls and ornate details are picture perfect. The movie wasn’t actually filmed here, but a visit through will have you looking for Nearly Headless Nick hovering above the tables. The stately steps and corridor outside the real Christ Church dining hall was where Professor McGonnagall first greeted young Harry and friends.
