15 Real World Locations You Can Visit Where Fictional Stories Were Shot

Ever since I was a child, all I wanted was to run behind the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park or visit Hogwarts and study there. We all know what happens when that bubble breaks. But do you also know the level of my excitement when I realised that both of them were actually shot in real locations and were not just green screens!?

For your kind pleasure (you’re welcome), we bring you some of our favourite fictional locations, and the real life places (only Earth, FYI 😜) where they were shot.
