The Original experience

  • Go on a magical Harry Potter themed walking tour across London
  • Get sorted into your Hogwarts House and test your Harry Potter knowledge
  • See the famous Platform 9 ¾ trolley at King's Cross Station
  • Stroll through Diagon Alley, visit the Leaky Cauldron, and more
Full description
Walk in the footsteps of your favorite wizards (and witches) around the muggle world of London. Meet your guide in Soho and find out which House you belong in. Head down the real Diagon Alley, where Harry buys his first wand in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone." Then visit the entrance to The Leaky Cauldron, the secret wizarding inn.

Stand on the bridge destroyed by the Death Eaters in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Your guide is a Harry Potter enthusiast, armed with weird and wonderful film trivia. Take part in their quiz and use your knowledge to earn points. May the best House win!

Visit the sites that inspired J.K. Rowling, from Shakespeare's Globe to St. Paul's Cathedral. Go to King’s Cross Station, home of Platform 9 ¾, where you can take your photo with the disappearing trolley - the perfect souvenir for wizarding folk. Your tour ends here.
