Buildings can be altered, skies filled with flying cars and neon ads, but the locations still remain recognizable. This means you can visit them and experience the atmosphere of your favorite movie! Here are 10 cool locations from famous movies you should see at least once.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone – King’s Cross Station (London, UK)
This may not be the most spectacular filming location, but it’s exactly the same as in the movie! Just try not to run into the ‘teleport’ wall as it will most likely leave you disappointed. And don’t miss Ollivander’s Wand shop nearby – it looks exactly like in the movie.
Lord of the Rings – Glaciers of South Island and The Southern Alps (New Zealand)
The whole country has been turned into a huge filming ground for the breathtaking Lord of the Rings movie, but glaciers and mountains of the South Islands are among the most picturesque. They will definitely take your breath away!
Jurassic Park – Kauai (Hawaii)
Head to the Kauai Island if you want to experience wilderness untouched by man with lush nature like you’ve never seen before. It definitely looks like dinosaurs can be lurking in the green depths of its Na Pali Coast.
The Shining – Timberline Lodge (Mount Hood, Oregon)
The Shining is one of those iconic movies that stay with you forever…It’s just impossible to forget them! While being a gut-wrenching thriller, The Shining was actually filmed in a beautiful location all movie fans should visit at least once.
