When it comes to book and movie franchises, there's nothing that compares to J.K Rowling's Harry Potter series. She created a world that was so magical and imaginative yet so realistic at the same time that fans across the world became obsessed. I know we all wish we could be a witch or wizard on our way to potions class right now.
But even though the books and movies have all come to an end, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter world continues to live on. If you're a die-hard Harry Potter fan there are tons of themed activities, restaurants and bars, and events that you can take part in across the province to feel like you're really there!
