Full description
Meet your Oxford University student guide in central Oxford and head for the 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 and hear trivia about the characters and movie productions. Test your knowledge of all things Harry Potter in our custom quiz and win a Potter-themed prize. Along the way, hear about Oxford’s influence in famous children’s literature, from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to The Hobbit.

Finish with an optional tour of Christ Church (founded 1524), admission not included in the ticket price, whose hall was only an inspiration and not the actual Dining Hall at Hogwarts.

Your tour includes admission to the Bodleian Library and at least two Oxford University buildings. Although sudden sites closures are beyond our control and affect all tour companies, we will offer you a full refund even if just one of the sites are not available.
