London Harry Potter Walking Tour

Harry Potter Walking Tour of London

Get acquainted with the fantastical landmarks of Harry Potter’s world with this thematic walking tour through London. To start, head to your nearest tube station and purchase a Travelcard for Zone 1 (if you don’t already have one). Then ride to King’s Cross for your morning or noon tour, where you’ll meet your guide and visit your first site – Platform 9¾. Stand where the magical students did as they waited for the Hogwarts Express to come whisk them away. Snap a picture of yourself under the platform sign before continuing on. 

As you wind through London on the 2.5 walking tour, hear loads of Harry Potter trivia and fascinating stories about the filming locations. Stroll through Diagon Alley where Harry purchased all his magical school supplies in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, then visit the entry to the Leaky Cauldron, the popular wizarding pub. Walk over the Millennium Bridge, the site of Lord Voldemort’s brutal muggle attack in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and imagine a world patrolled by Death Eaters.

You’ll then continue along the Thames River from the Embankment to Tate Modern Museum to view key London sites that inspired J.K. Rowling’s tales. Experience the world through the author’s eyes as you see elements of muggle London spun into a magical patchwork. A great excursion for every kid, adult and book lover! Your tour ends in the afternoon back at King’s Cross Station.

We had a really great time on the tour. Our guide, Tom, was very knowledgeable about Harry Potter and London and managed to tie all kinds of historical, literary and geographical ideas together: linking, among other things, Sam Wanamaker's role in the building of the Globe Theater to his daughter Zoe's appearance in the films as we passed the Globe on our way to a film location. Excellent job!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2015

Absolutely loved the tour. It went for about 3.5 hours. It was definately worth paying more to do the tour. The tour guide was great. She set a good pace, was friendly, happy to answer questions and was enthusiastic. The way that this is set up is great. There is so much to see and do. Highlights for me were the Hogworths dining room, the Hogworts express, Hogwarts bridge, Diagon Alley and Hogwarts.
If you are a big fan I would definitely recommend doing this tour.
