No one would have imagined a series of books becoming a worldwide phenomenon, and J.K. Rowling has scored a huge fanbase with the magical world she created for the kids. What released as a fairytale for the kids turned out to be the most desired fictitious destination in the world. To plunge through the pillars at the King’s Cross station and catch the snitch on the broom have been the dream of every kid.
The books and the movies turned out to be a massive success that, even today, almost a decade after the story’s conclusion, the world yearns to see all these characters again. Any Potterhead will surely spend all their fortune to spend a night on the ground of Hogwarts, and it has been this undying fandom that led to the idea of erecting some of these structures for real.
