Fodor's Expert Review Goathland

Whitby Town/Village

This moorland village, 8 miles southwest of Whitby, has a charming 1865 train station that was the location for Hogsmeade Station, where students bound for Hogwarts disembarked in the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. While there, hop on the 18-mile-long North Yorkshire Moors Railway, which travels between Grosmont and Pickering, passing through picturesque towns and moorland. The route of the steam-powered trains extends to Whitby twice daily.
