Harry Potter Walking Tour of London

Get acquainted with the fantastical landmarks of Harry Potter’s world with this thematic walking tour through London. Meet your guide in Leicester Square and wind through London, hearing 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.

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.

The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was very cool to see some of the filming locations since I was unable to go to the actual studios. I thought they did a fantastic job with the wide range of ages on the tour approx 40 people - they were especially sweet with the children. Unlike a few people have noted, the guides were very careful about keeping the group together on the tube and did offer a restroom break. Be kind folks, don't forget to tip your guides!!

It was great tour, you gotta walk a lil bit but is worth it, also it gives you the local experience since you need to catch some trains and walk thru the market and streets, crossing nice bridges, etc.
I would highly recommend not only for HP fans but for anyone that wants to get around london and see some important landmarks closely.

Enjoyed this tour with john as our guide. My daughter 7 has already spotted where we stood near Scotland yard and said, we stood there! I know I could have walked around the sites myself, but it was more fun to have john as our guide and hear lots of interesting nuggets about harry potter and London. Thanks :
