The vaulted cloisters at Gloucester Cathedral became the corridors leading to Gryffindor House, part of Hogwarts School, during filming of the first two Harry Potter Movies. The Cathedral, one of the finest medieval buildings in the country, has been a place of worship for over 1300 years. It is renowned for its stunning stained glass windows, architecture and choir.
During your visit look out for the Lavatorium on the North Walk where Harry Potter and Ron Weasley hid from the giant troll!
