Harry Potter at Half Term

Harry Potter at Half Term

A trip to Gloucester Cathedral would make a great half term trip – a reminder of this popular idea from earlier in the year! 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!

A birds eye view

A birds eye view

Visitors to Gloucester Cathedral can have amazing views out across the city and surrounding countryside. On a clear day you can see up to 40 miles. The catch…you have to climb up 269 steps…and down again! (and you'll need to be over 6 years old). On the way up the tower you stop off at the ringing chamber and the bell chamber. Make the most of the beautiful September weather we are having and treat yourself to amazing views…with a bit of exercise thrown in!
