Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which opened in theaters this past weekend, marks the end of 10 years of Harry Potter movie magic. Watching the last film, I felt by turns anxious, jubilant, and more than a little nostalgic. I'll miss Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the gang. I'll miss Alan Rickman and his delicious sneering. And more than anything, I'll miss Hogwarts. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry isn't just Harry Potter's first home, and the site of his final battle - it's the heart and soul of the Wizarding world.
So I took it upon myself to create a little photo tour of everyone's favorite fictional castle, starting from our very first glimpse of Hogwarts in Harry's very first movie. I hope you enjoy.
