the steps of hogwarts

steps in the christ church dining hall at oxford university

My husband and I visited Oxford University and got a chance to see the actual steps of Hogwarts from the Harry Potter movies. It was first shown in the movie when the new first-year students greeted Professor McGonagall at the entry to the school. Being in the actual 16th century building does feel as though you’re at Hogwarts in a whole other world. It’s got the magic and grandeur that you would expect, but it’s tucked neatly away behind the courtyard of the college. I was glad I got to see the grounds and walk around the college just to experience some of that ambience.
