In the Yorkshire countryside, you can visit Goathland Station, which served as the setting for the fictional Hogsmeade station, serving both the village of Hogsmeade and the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy, in Harry Potter films.

Though you can’t take the Hogwarts Express here, you can take a steam train or heritage diesel train to the station with the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, which passes through some of Yorkshire’s stunning scenery.

All aboard at Goathland Station, the set for the fictional Hogsmeade station, serving both the village of Hogsmeade and the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy, in Harry Potter films.

And it’s not just famous for Harry Potter, the British police drama “Heartbeat,” was also filmed here and in the village of Goathland. With a shop and tearoom on site, you can hang out for a bit at this station or explore the town and nearby national park. Just don’t hold your breath waiting for Hagrid.
