Full description
Walk in the footsteps of your favorite wizards (and witches) around Muggle London. Your Harry Potter enthusiast guide will be armed with weird and wonderful trivia all along the way. 

After meeting your guide, start your adventure by finding out which Hogwarts’ House you belong in. Then compete against other Houses in an interactive quiz as you see the sites that inspired J.K. Rowling, from Shakespeare's Globe to the narrow London alleys that inspired the likes of Knockturn Alley.

Highlights include passing The Leaky Cauldron, the secret wizarding inn. Explore the real Diagon Alley, where Harry buys his first wand. Even see the bridge destroyed by the Death Eaters in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince".

Hagrid (John) was our excellent guide. He covered a last minute shift from a sick coworker and didn’t let that affect the tour at all. He was funny, personable and seemed genuinely excited to be showing the city off. My favourite part about the tour was that even though many of the locations we stopped at seemed completely normal, John showed us how they were used in the movies with video reference and context. I would have never known an otherwise normal looking alley was the inspiration for Nocturn. Cheers from Manitoba John!

Such a fun and informative way to learn about London and Harry Potter. It was great to have some of the filming locations in London pointed out which I had overlooked. After we watched small clips along the way, I looked at these places in a new light after realising they were used in the movies ! We started the tour by being sorted into our houses. Along the way we answered quiz questions to win points for our house. The places we travelled to were used either as inspiration for places in the film or actual film locations for Diagon Alley, Knockturn Alley, Gringots, The Entrance for the Ministry of Magic, The Leaky Cauldron, Kings Cross, Platform 9 and 3/4 and more. It’s the perfect trip for Harry Potter lovers and anyone looking for a fun and interactive way to see some of the sights in London. Our guide John a.k.a Hagrid had so many fun Harry Potter facts and made the tour as amazing as it was. Thank you for a wonderful tour!
