Traveler Tips

Be prepared to walk, and note not all locations are included (logistically this would be impossible) - but the tour guide provided instructions on seeing others should you desire.
I would not suggest taking one of the other shorter tours unless you simply can't spare the time.
Be warned; we did not go to Platform 9 3/4 in Kings Cross, so you may want to venture to the station on your own.

Seeing the alleys used as inspiration for the alleys depicted in the movies and it was exciting to match up real life locations to the film sets
Book this!!

This was so great!! We loved walking around the city and seeing cool parts of London- We are Harry Potter fans, but it’s fun if you aren’t. I recommend handing out in the market after the tour so plan wisely!! Loved our tour guide: Alex Scamander!! Great way to spend the day:)

Our guide was Nicholas Longbottom and what a guide he was!! Lots of Potter facts as expected, but also classic literature, a bit of architecture and also art info. Such good fun, with giggles and groans at his puns and jokes. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended.
Cracking trip

Alex Scaramander made the tour interesting and fun. All the family had a great time and learned some fun Harry potter themed facts. A great way to see London from a different perspective.
