Does this look familiar? This photo is for all of the Harry Potter fans out there. During my visit to Christ Church, Oxford I saw the staircase where Professor McGonagall welcomed Harry and his classmates to Hogwarts in the movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Goodness me, very interesting. I haven’t seen any Harry Potter films.(bad girl me!) I visited Weta world here and was speechless when seeing all there props and film clips on Lord of the ring.
I would love to the the stuff from Lord of the Rings. I loved that movie series as well. And the books are really enjoyable. Don’t worry many people on our tour hadn’t watched Harry Potter either.
I’ll put some photos of all the characters in a post . My sister took photos of all of them. They had replicas in a show room.
That would be awesome!
It was fun!
Oh wow…what I wouldn’t give to see that for real.
I think you would like it!
No, way, no way, no way!!!!! That is awesome! Daniel went to Oxford, but he didn’t see that. Can you tell I am a Harry Potter freak?!? Have you seen Diagon Alley in London? We saw that when we were on the Jack the Ripper Walk, and you could really tell it was the same alley from the movie. Oh, you are soooo lucky!! Ok, I’ll shut up now 🙂
I haven’t been to Diagon Alley yet or done a Jack the Ripper walk. My best friend really wants to do the Jack the Ripper walk so I am waiting for her to visit. They have Harry Potter tours that I want to do. I loved the movies and books. I worked in a bookstore when the last Potter book was released. All of the hoopla was crazy. And her security measures where intense. I worked in the back and saw most of the books before they hit the shelves. Except for the Harry Potter books. They were in boxes that were locked and could not be open until they went on sale. And we all had to sign contracts saying that we would not break any of her rules. All of us were a little scared of her power.
OMG you worked in a bookstore?!?! That’s like my dream job!! 🙂
It was my dream job until I worked there. I think I would like to work in a smaller bookstore that isn’t owned by a corporation.
How about owning a little bookstore? Wouldn’t that be fun? Maybe with a little Internet cafe in one corner. Sighhhhh
What a fun bit of movie trivia!
I love stuff like that…makes traveling even more entertaining.
I remember that scene! Wow I can’t believe it’s been 10 years! I miss going to see the new movies in theather when they would come out. I visited Platform 9 and 3/4 in London! 🙂
I haven’t done that yet! I’ll have to remember that. I will miss the movies as well.
That’s so neat – I’m envious (in a good way)! I’m content to live vicariously through this photo, but if I ever it to Oxford, this will be a must see for me. Wonderful shot, the image is framed well.
Thanks. Oxford is beautiful and has many literary connections, which I got a kick out of. I had to wait a long time for the stairs to be empty for this shot and only had one chance to take it. Glad it worked it. It was a point and shoot and no funny stuff 🙂
Would love to visit Oxford. And Harry Potter… 😉 I’ve seen the movie, but cannot recall this scene. Reason for me to watch it again?
I think it’s a good reason!
My stepdaughter would love seeing that. She is obsessed with Harry Potter. I guess you can tour the place where they filmed the school scenes too.
There was a gal on the trip who was super excited to see this spot. She was so cute getting her picture taken by her family. Your stepdaughter would love it. I want to do an official Harry Potter tour. If I do, I’ll share the photos.
My little grandson was thrilled to see this 🙂
Ah…that’s cute. Thanks for telling me.
I didn’t recognize it, but then again I haven’t seen the movie. I’m a decade behind the Harry Potter series. lol
No worries…you have plenty of time to catch up now that the series is over.
How cool is that! Thanks for this bit of trivia.
These would be a nice addition to a door collection … great doors with a bit of film history attached.
Oh wow. I had goosebumps looking at it. 🙂
