Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Walk in the footsteps of your favorite wizards (and witches) around Muggle London. Your Harry Potter enthusiast guide will be armed with weird and wonderful trivia all along the way.  After meeting your guide, start your adventure by finding out which Hogwarts’ House you belong in. Then compete against other Houses in an interactive quiz as you see the sites that inspired J.K. Rowling, from Shakespeare's Globe to the narrow London alleys that inspired the likes of Knockturn Alley. Highlights include passing The Leaky Cauldron, the secret wizarding inn. Explore the real Diagon Alley, where Harry buys his first wand. Even see the bridge destroyed by the Death Eaters in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince".  For part of your guided tour, choose either a short boat trip down the Thames or take the world-famous London Underground. Both the boat and Underground options follow this itinerary:  1. Southwark Cathedral 2. 800-year-old Borough Market 3. Sir Francis Drake's world-famous Golden Hinde 4. Winchester Palace 5. 900-year-old Clink Prison 6. Shakespeare's Globe 7. Millennium Bridge 8. Daniel Radcliffe's School 9. The London Eye 10. River Thames 11. Sherlock Holmes' Pub 12.

Loved the Harry Potter guided tour with our guide John. There was only myself and my daughter on the tour and John went out of his way to make the tour fun and even threw in a couple of detours, he was full of info. Would definitely do another tour next time we're in London.

Anais was our guide today and made us feel very welcome. The walking tour was informative and entertaining. We saw parts of London, tucked away from the busy streets, which we never knew existed! Great for Harry Potter fans and an enjoyable way to spend a morning. Thank you Anais, we had a great time.

This tour was a perfect mix of information from the Harry Potter books, the Harry Potter movies, as well as tidbits about J.K. Rowling and London. We loved the interactive nature of the tour, which included an ongoing trivia competition between tour members assigned to different Hogwarts houses. Our tour guide, Nic, did an excellent job of keeping the tour engaging and fun for adults and kids alike, having them participate in re-enactments of scenes from the Harry Potter movies in front of the actual sites where they were filmed.
