To honor Draco Malfoy’s 36th birthday, we’re inviting everyone to go visit him at Malfoy Manor.
Draco Malfoy turns 36 today (June 5, 2016), and we’re sure he’s probably wondering if anyone will wish a happy birthday. His son, Scorpius is almost of age to start attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, so all eyes are on the little Malfoy, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t long for a little attention of his own.
So, we’re giving everyone a little idea of where his quiet domicile, the elusive Malfoy Manor, is located. Plus, since you’ve probably been wondering, we’ve obtained a little infographic that reveals other locations that you can go check out while you’re in the area, with the help of Darwin Escapes.
In all honestly, many of the buildings or places that were noted in the books were filmed on location for the movies, or at least the exteriors were, including Malfoy Manor, Diagon Alley, Gringotts Wizarding Bank and several other places.
Hardwick Hall in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, in particular, served as the exterior for Malfoy Manor in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1.
Die-hard fans, however, will want to make their way straight to Hogwarts. While the main exterior is at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, the quadrangle can be found at Durham Cathedral, which is free to enter and easily reached from Durham city centre and train station.
Check out all the ones listed and see which ones you’d like to visit. .
