Full description

Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and other characters from the Harry Potter movies. J.K. Rowling applied to study at Oxford University and so she was familiar with Oxford.

When they were producing the films, Rowling walked the producers around Oxford, pointing out various sights which they could use, such as the statue that looks like 'Nearly Headless Nick', and Turf Tavern Lane, which looks like Knockturn Alley.

This tour showcases where the Harry Potter movies were filmed in Oxford. It includes entry to 1 film site only via the Divinity School, where they filmed the classroom, dance, and infirmary scenes.

You will be passing the city's famous sights and colleges from the outside. You will also be provided with lots of insights about the actors, the producers and about JK Rowling's inspirations. As you walk around, you will take part in a Harry Potter quiz to test your knowledge of the books and films. The guide will also describe how student life in Oxford compares with Hogwarts.

  • Guide
  • Detailed map of Oxford city center colleges, attractions and sights
  • Entrance to the Divinity School film site worth £2.50 per person
  • Inside visit of the medieval library upstairs (the library is not open to any tour operators to conduct guided tours)

Highly recommend! Our guide, Michiel, made our Harry Potter tour through Oxford both informative and entertaining, by showing architectural, cultural and historical touch points with famous fantasy writers (and more). We also enjoyed that he made sure to create an interactive experience, including for our 12-year old group member who could test his knowledge of the Harry Potter world in little guessing games.

Professor Mikhiel was extremely knowledgeable both about Harry Potter and Oxford - great for both myself and my son (11yo). We love Harry Potter but are not fanatical so it was a good balance for us! Thank you very much for the informative and very pleasant tour. We learnt a lot and it has hopefully inspired my son to try and study at Oxford one day!

Michiel was an excellent guide, and the tour was both interesting and amusing. Michiel combined just enough Harry Potter and JK Rowling knowledge, information, and trivia alongside some insightful facts about the city of Oxford, the University, architecture, and literature, all of which resulted in a fulfilling 90 min tour. Michiel also added a lot of dry whit to the experience. I would say if you are solely looking for Harry Potter movie insight then this isn’t the tour for you. But for an educational, interesting, funny and informative jaunt into the nature in which Oxford and the world of Harry Potter are intertwined then mischief managed!
