  • Explore old Oxford colleges whose rooms and cloisters doubled as Hogwarts
  • Hear insider gossip about the movies, characters, and filming
  • Take part in a Harry Potter quiz as you walk and discover
  • Learn about Oxford University and other children’s books written in the city
  • Admission fees included, apart from entry fee to Christ Church college
Meet your Oxford University student guide in central Oxford, and head for Hogwarts' Infirmary, set in one of the halls of the famous Bodleian Library.

Imagine the infirmary’s beds in place here, and admire the richly sculpted beasts and biblical carvings that appeared in many of the Harry Potter movies.

Next, explore one or two of Oxford’s oldest colleges, delving into the rooms and cloisters that featured as Hogwarts’ gloomy interior. See other filming locations, hear trivia about the characters and movie productions, and enjoy an entertaining quiz, testing your knowledge of all things Potter.

Along the way, hear about Oxford’s place in the annals of famous children’s literature, learning how books like 'Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland' and 'The Hobbit' were written here.

Your tour includes admission to the Bodleian, and at least two Oxford University buildings—although entrance cannot be guaranteed. Finish with a tour of Christ Church, with admission at your expense. The admission fee is charged as an extra as the college is often closed or has long lines, so the fee is not included as standard.

Your tour concludes at Christ Church, whether you explore it during the tour or not.

Had a really nice time on this tour with my Study Abroad class. Our tour guide (Mar?) was excellent, and as an Oxford student herself provided a lot of interesting background from her perspective.
