Let's face it, we're pretty much obsessed with anything to do with the green-eyed wizard since he first blessed our screens way back in 2001.

It's this time of year we wish we were packing up our trunks and getting our own Hedwig fed and prepped for the long journey to the Wizarding School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry.

Turns out, the dream could become a reality!


The steam train named The Jacobite will take you on an 84-mile round-trip from Fort William to Mallaig, running from a station by Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain.

All aboard...

Trips run until October, as well as winter mornings from 4 to 22 December and 27 to 29 December.


Prices begin at £35 (About €45) (that's for an adult return) or £59 (About €70) if you opt for First Class. Fancy.

You can find out a bit more about it here.
