Oxford: Harry Potter Tour with Divinity School Entry
- Duration options: 80 minutes - 1.5 hours
Follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and other characters from the Harry Potter movies. J.K. Rowling applied to study at Oxford University and so she was familiar with Oxford. Thus, when they were producing the films, Rowling walked the producers around Oxford, pointing out various sights which they could use, such as the statue that looks like 'Nearly Headless Nick', and Turf Tavern Lane, which looks like Knockturn Alley.
This tour showcases where the Harry Potter movies were filmed in Oxford. It includes entry to 1 film site only via the Divinity School, where they filmed the classroom, dance, and infirmary scenes.
You will be passing the city's famous sights and colleges from the outside. You will also be provided with lots of insights about the actors, the producers and about JK Rowling's inspirations. As you walk around, ...

As a Harry Potter fan, you probably made many people wonder how can someone enjoy the books, the movies, the wizard and its crew as much as you do! They should stop wondering, shouldn’t they? Instead of trying to convince someone to read a book or watch a movie about Harry Potter, why not bring them to a tour where they will be visiting some of the most astonishing landscapes in Scotland with you?

For those looking for a tour around the Highlands amid all the many tour choices out there, I sincerely recommend Rafael’s tour - it was for sure the best tour I’ve ever joined. Rafael took the thoughts to plan for the tour, so that you get to travel to all the less-accessible but all the more beautiful spots in the Highlands within a day. This was not something one can do usually without a guide who knows and loves the place. For Harry Potter fans, it was definitely a dream coming true to step on where Hagrid threw his stone, where Dumbledore slept forever, where Hermione got hit by a stone thrown by herself...this trip was definitely the best part of my Scotland trip. It makes me want to return to all the mesmerizing places again. For sure a once-in-a-lifetime experience, even for those who are not big about Harry Potter, because the Highlands that Rafael took you through was stunningly beautiful in its own rights.

THIS tour was amazing! We had booked another tour of Harry Potter in Oxford who cancelled on us last minute saying the library wasn't open (it was cos Peter took us around it! - different tour company!) Anyway we had a multitude of events leading up to the tour that made us slightly late, Peter however was very accommodating and hung around for my wife and daughter. I then joined later and Peter looked after us by extending the tour which was really kind. The Harry Potter tour was enjoyed by my daughter - job done! Peters knoweldge and expertise in this and other Oxford fields is amazing - book with Peter and not the other company he's the best.
If you’re looking for lots of wonderful information and A Harry Potter wizard whilst you tour Oxford, then look no further than Peter. We were lucky enough to have both Peter and Alastair showing us around and then to finish a wonderful Harry Potter quiz which our children absolutely loved. Peter then finished off with treats fit the children which was a lovely touch. Every question answered, further recommendations and lots of extra time after the tour where Peter kindly showed us around further whilst answering lots of our questions! Thank you very much guys.
An enjoyable 3 hours, I am not to be fair, a Harry Potter super fan but have watched all the films and still enjoyed this tour, it contained facts about other films and books/authors from Oxford as well as some of the history .We were only a small group which I found to be good. Peter’s knowledge was vast and he came across very well.
Alasdair was awesome. He told us so many cool facts about all the places that we’ve seen and the whole experience was really fun
Peter was our tour guide, very enthusiastic and knowledgable on Harry Potter and Oxford as a whole
