Lavenham, Suffolk

On a cloudy day in early June we spent the day in Lavenham, Suffolk, famed for its colourful and crooked medieval houses. We also had lunch in one of its pubs, but it wasn’t that great so I sadly can’t offer any lunch recommendations for the area. The one thing that really drew me to the place was that some of the scenes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows were filmed here. For a Harry Potter fan such as myself this was a massive deal – to see the real life Godric’s Hollow! Although so many of the houses were painted in beautiful pastel colours and were very photogenic, it was the Grade I listed 14th century cottage (second photo from bottom) that turned out to be the highlight for me. This house was filmed from different angles and then these shots were edited and used to create various scenes in Godric’s Hollow. For this reason it is now one of the most photographed houses in Britain.
