Filmed as one long movie as opposed to two, The Deathly Hallows was shot in locations all over the UK, from the streets of London to the hills of Scotland. Here are a few of our must see locations from the new film:
Levenham – A medieval village that still retains many of its half-timbered houses and a renowned 15th c. church. This town was used in secrecy as the location for Godric’s Hollow– where Dumbledore, Godric Gryffindor and the Potters all once lived. The town’s Market Square is also the setting for John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s 1970 film Apotheosis.
Swinley Forest – Land owned by the English Crown Estate, situated in the Great Windsor Park in the southeast of England, this is the location of the deep forest scenes between Harry and Voldemort.
Freshwater West – The beach upon which Shell Cottage was built for the film. Shell Cottage is the home of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour. It is also where the new Robin Hood with Russell Crowe was filmed in 2009.
