"It's been absolutely wonderful having the filming here. The Cathedral costs 5,000 pounds a day to run, that's paying musicians, and keeping the building open," the Daily Star quoted Bairbre Lloyd, Cathedral operations manager, as saying. Harry Potter fans from across the world visit the place adding to the revenue.
He said: "In terms of filming, without that revenue, we have to raise money from other sources. It's a fabulous resource and a great income stream to have." The site has been used in the last five wizard flicks too. "With the first two films, we had around 50,000 extra visitors, so it's been really good for us."
