Harry Potter fans are sure to go crazy over these places that have the feel of the movie itself. Relive your favorite scenes from the blockbuster hit and head over to these destinations.

Better hurry to King's Cross Station if you want to catch the train to Hogwarts. This location in England is where the famous platform 9 3/4 is located. In the first installation of the movie entitled the 'Sorcerer's Stone', this is where Harry's journey as a wizard all began. However, for the ultimate train ride on the Hogwarts Express, you have to go all the way to Edinburgh, Scotland to see the actual route of the movie on the Jacobite Steam Train Ride. Sit back, relax and enjoy the epic ride. 

The train ride to Hogwarts will take you back to Alnwick Castle in England, the locaiton of the popular school for the first two movies. The castle grounds are where the magical trio of Harry, Hermione and Ron strolled and learned to ride a broom stick and play quidditch. 

After a long day of touring, rest like a true wizard in the Georgia Hotel House in London, where the rooms are themed just exactly like how a wizard chamber should be. The wall of the rooms even have the Gryffindor crest. 

However, if these places are not enough, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida, will allow you to step into the shoes of Harry and Hermione as you drink pumpkin juice or butter beer in the Leaky Cauldron and Three Broomsticks. This theme park features the Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade along with dragon rides. There are also actual stores named after the ones in the movie itself like Honeydukes, Dervish and Banges and Weasleys Wizzard Wheezes.

So whether you love the movie or the book, check these places out and experience what it's like to be the most famous wizard of all.
