Durham Cathedral on screen

Over the years, we've welcomed film crews to Durham Cathedral, often the perfect location for everything from documentaries to blockbuster films.

Notably, various locations across the cathedral were used in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and Avengers: Endgame.

Meet a movie star!

Here be dragons! This marvellous inkwell, carved with owls and wyverns, is part of Durham Cathedral's collections and was used as part of the set of Professor McGonagall's classroom from the first two Harry Potter films, parts of which were shot at Durham Cathedral. See the inkwell's carved detail up close in this video.
