Yorkshire is a very popular place for Harry Potter fans.

A number of memorable scenes were filmed in Goathland and the Yorkshire Dales and places like York have become synonymous with the franchise.

Now, fans of the wizarding movies have another reason to take a trip to visit the land of God, as you can take a trip in the cars used in the scenes where young students are heading to Hogwarts.

Trips in the crimson coaches along the Settle to Carlisle line are currently available for booking through West Coast Railways.

Pendle Dalesman Journeys take a scenic route along the line and are transported by a heritage steam train.

The cars have been restored to their former glory and passengers can experience what it could be like as a young witch or wizard as you travel through the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside.

The train will travel on the Settle to Carlisle line, which includes the famous Ribblehead Viaduct

In addition to the cars used for filming, there will also be “cars served throughout the golden age of rail”.

The line crosses North Yorkshire on an always preferred trip on the Settle and Carlisle Railway.
