Where did they film the “Hogsmeade station” scene?
The scenes were shot at the Goathland Station which is located near Whitby, North England. The exact address of the station is Cow Wath Bank, Goathland, Whitby YO22 5NF, UK.
The surrounding area of the station was digitally altered to make you feel as if it is in nature, only surrounded by hills and the Hogwarts castle. If you visit the Goathland station you will see that it looks very much the same as it looked in the movie scenes. There are still the same benches and lamps however the color of the wooden buildings has changed a little.
