Harry Potter was a book and movie series that has changed a generation. If you happen to be a true Potterhead then a trip around England visiting some major film locations might be just for you. Here at Places You’ll See we thought we would make things easier for you and have come up with a list of our favourite Harry Potter film locations throughout London, the English countryside and Wales.

London:

London was a major filming location throughout all the movies and you could spend days hunting down little Harry Potter gems. Here are 4 stops to get you started.

Warner Brothers Studio Tour:

HP Studio Tour

No true Harry Potter fan would pass up the opportunity to visit the Harry Potter studio where much of the filming takes place. You can easily spend a full day here as you browse through thousands of props, enjoy short videos by all the major actors, sit on the Knight Bus, and drink a mug of Butterbeer. The cost is £50 for the day and includes transport by bus from several locations

Platform 9 ¾:

Platform 9 and 3 quaters

Who knew a book would propel a random platform in Kings Cross Station to international fame? Well Harry Potter has done just that. Thousands of tourists flock to the platform every week to see where the magical world begins. There is a baggage trolley half through the wall where you can have your next Instagram photo taken as well as a store selling nothing but Harry Potter merchandise.

Millennium Bridge:

No doubt you’ll be visiting the Thames anyway (to see Big Ben, the London Eye, Tower Bridge etc) so while you are here why not walk across the bridge that the Death Eaters

Claremont Square:

Siruis Blacks House

Sirius Black was always our favorite character so a trip to 12 Grimmauld place was a must. This line of streets was used as the exterior to Sirius Black’s (and then Harry’s) house in the later films.

Film Locations In The English Countryside:

Harry Potter film locations can be found throughout England, Wales and Scotland so no tour would be complete if we didn’t step outside of the city and find some more rural locations.

Hardwick Hall:

Malfoy Manor And Voldermort Stronghold

If you head north of London you can find Hardwick Hall. A beautiful English countryside manor which just so happened to be owned by the Malfoys. This manor was used in a number of the later films especially once Voldemort chose it as his base of operations. Entry into the grounds and manor only costs £12 for adults and £6 for children. If you like the countryside you can continue heading north into Scotland to see some of the lakes and mountains used as beautiful backdrops for the films.

Ashbridge wood:

Quidditch World Cup

Heading west of London you’ll soon find yourself at Ashbridge Wood. Home of the Quidditch World Cup. Grab a bottle of water and walk through the lovely landscape and take in the fresh air found outside of London.

Gloucester Cathedral:

Hogwartz Interiors

Continue heading west of Ashbridge Wood and you’ll find yourself at Gloucester Cathedral where many Hogwarts interior shots are taken. This beautiful old church has free entry and its architecture is a wonder to see.

Freshwater West beach:

The Beach Dobby Died At

If you get lucky and have a few sunny days then a trip to Freshwater West Beach in Wales is a great way to spend the day. Enjoy the sun and the sand and try not to think about the death of Dobby too much as you visit the place where it all happened.

This $800 Robot Suitcase Will Follow You Around Airports

Wheeling clunky luggage before a flight can be stressful. Thankfully, ForwardX Robotics, an autonomous-focused company, developed a better travel companion: A robot suitcase that follows you around airports.

On Monday, ForwardX Robotics announced in a press release that it will showcase the Ovis Suitcase, an autonomous piece of luggage that’s powered by AI and self-navigates through terminals, at  CES 2019. ForwardX Robotics said the Ovis Suitcase, which will cost $799, will be available to customers by the first half of 2019.

After debuting the CX-1, a suitcase prototype model, at CES 2018, ForwardX Robotics upgraded the Ovis Suitcase with cool high-tech features, including side-follow movement, a GPS tracking module, and a manual mode for escalators and stairs.

Unlike standard luggage, the Ovis Suitcase uses self-driving technology and algorithms to side-follow users anywhere, including airports, city streets, and hotels. Computer vision technology enables the Ovis Suitcase to spot obstacles and move around them, so users won’t have to worry about it bumping into objects.

On escalators and stairs, users can place their hand on the Ovis Suitcase handle to switch it to manual mode. Users can wear a smart band that notifies them when the Ovis Suitcase is more than 6.5 feet away, and a GPS tracking module allows users to find their Ovis Suitcase if they leave it behind in a car or hotel.

Following CES 2018, ForwardX Robotics raised more than $1.4 million for the Ovis Suitcase through its Indiegogo campaign. ForwardX Robotics, which previously raised $10 million in series A funding, just closed its series B funding round with another $20 million. With the Ovis Suitcase, ForwardX Robotics aims to provide customers with high-tech, hassle-free travel experiences, so they don’t have to worry about luggage issues on the go.

“Most robots today are programmed to do a single task. Our AI-enabled robots can perform several different functions with very limited help from humans, similar to self-driving vehicles,” Nicholas Chee, the CEO of ForwardX Robotics, said in the press release. “We see that as the next true breakthrough in robotic technology.”

Watch: Is This Robotic Hotel Room on Wheels the Future of Travel?

It’s a personal taxi and luxury hotel room in one — and it might just be the future of travel.

Toronto-based design firm Aprilli Design Studio designed the “Autonomous Travel Suite,” a hotel suite housed within a self-driving vehicle, which lets travelers visit multiple destinations anytime, day or night.

Conceptual renderings show a battery-powered, mobile hotel room on wheels, equipped with sleeping, working, and washroom facilities. It features a double bed, desk area and workspace, shower, panoramic windows, and a retractable roof where room service can be dropped off via drones.

The travel suite will allow “guests to use their travel time more efficiently and productively,” according to Aprilli.

There will also be an indoor temperature control system, which responds to climates and environments automatically.

Aprilli says the Autonomous Travel Suite communicates through a central platform for “intelligent hospitality service” called Autonomous Interface that controls the various operations and services between the travel suites and hotel facilities using advanced technology.

Travelers would simply specify the destinations they want to visit via an online app, and the interface will analyze the best routes to take. Any necessary services can also be requested through the app.

And since many travelers would still prefer the perks of stationary hotels, Aprilli says it will install hotel facilities across road networks. The stationary “parent units,” which the Autonomous Travel Suites can dock into, will provide public amenities, such as a meeting room, spa, pol, and gym, along with housekeeping and charging services for the mobile suites.

“As a new way of traveling, the Autonomous Travel Suite will become a strong competitive form of inter-city travel option, impacting the conventional transportation and hospitality industry,” the design firm says on their website. “Along with future technologies including Artificial Intelligence, robotics, drones, among others, the Autonomous Travel Suite will become your companion, changing your journey into a destination.”

Aprilli’s concept for the Autonomous Travel Suite was awarded the top prize at this year’s Radical Innovation Award, which recognizes innovative ideas relating to hospitality.
