At my uni's library. I saw this on reddit but I go to Durham University... For anyone who doesn't understand, Durham University was used as the set for a lot of the Hogwarts based scenes in Harry Potter.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

Durham University offers a course that relates to the world of Harry Potter. That's the only thing of relation.

Nothing of Harry Potter was filmed in there.

The cathedral, however, was used for several scenes.

I thought Alnwick (sp?) Castle was used? could be both, although Alnwick may have just been used for exterior shots of Hogwarts.

Alnwick was used for the quiditch scenes

They used Durham Cathedral for things such as the outside courtyard and some of the corridors and other stuff.

God damn it Commisar Dan! Everyone knows Basilisks are not front line battle tanks, this is what you get!

If you are ever in Durham go to the Cathedral is pretty badass. Too bad the rest of the town is a massive ******** , though for a good laugh it's worth checking out the local talent at Loveshack on a Saturday night

Durham used to be so lovely when I lived there as a kid
Went back for a day and was like "what the hell happened?!"

But Darlington is still worse :/
User avatar #64 to #46 - InspectorGadget (05/22/2013) [-]
I am in Darlington right now, and these comments are just making me lose my **** ! PEOPLE FROM NEAR ME USE THIS WEBSITE WAT!
User avatar #65 to #64 - renreg (05/22/2013) [-]
I live near the airport!
THIS IS SO EXCITING!
User avatar #67 to #65 - InspectorGadget (05/22/2013) [-]
I live in Trimdon, near Sedgefield, near Durham! I'm so thrilled!
User avatar #68 to #67 - renreg (05/22/2013) [-]
Middleton St George for me, where they burnt down the primary school!
it was a while back, but it still got burnt down!
User avatar #72 to #67 - badgertom (05/22/2013) [-]
No **** way, I live in Trimdon too. Just a couple of minutes away from the Dovecote Inn
User avatar #88 to #72 - InspectorGadget (05/23/2013) [-]
NO WAY! How is this possible?!
User avatar #48 to #46 - badgertom (05/22/2013) [-]
I think the only thing that is worse than Darlington is Middlesborough. A bomb going off there would probably make the place look a bit better.

Isn't a Basilisk supposed to be part Rooster?

Sometimes but sometimes to be depicted as a large serpent or a giant lizard. The most common myth of the creation of the basilisk is a snake hatching from a chicken egg but there are also some about a snake and a chicken being fused by demon magic, and a chicken being bitten by a cursed snake. Most people make it look like a large snake because a big scaly chicken just looks silly.
User avatar #78 to #76 - AbsentMinded (05/22/2013) [-]
Are you kidding me?
That looks ******* awesome!
A big snake is boring as hell.

Probably, I live pretty close to there as well, but the schools logo reminds me a lot of Ryerson.
