Dartford is the principal town in the borough of Dartford. It is situated in the northwest corner of Kent, England, 16 miles (25 km) east south-east of central London.

Behind the scenes

  • In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, during the added road chase sequence during the Battle of the Seven Potters, Harry and Hagrid fly over the 96 bus heading towards Dartford.[1] However, the bus was incorrectly labelled as it was not only heading away from Dartford, but the 96 bus does not travel across the Dartford Crossing.[2]
  • It is also worth noting the exit of the tunnel which both Hagrid and Harry leave is in fact on the side of the English county of Essex, as the tunnel lies west of the Bridge (right of the bridge in the film), whilst the county of Kent is in fact the other side if filming the exit. This would mean they would be heading in the incorrect direction if heading towards Devon.
