Full description

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.  Meet your guide and start your adventure by finding out which Hogwarts’ House you belong in. Compete against other Houses in an interactive quiz as you see the sites that inspired J.K. Rowling, from Shakespeare's Globe to the London alleys that inspired 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.

My daughter and I did the Harry Potter walking tour in London at the weekend,my daughter has loved Harry Potter since she was a child.We met our guide Tom who was so lovely.It was a totally enjoyable experience even though I knew very little of H.P. Tom was so professional and made sure everyone on the tour felt included.as well as the locations used in various H.P films he gave us lots of information about the history of the areas we covered.Thank you Tom you made the tour so enjoyable.

I highly recommend this tour to Harry Potter fans and as a great way to see some London landmarks. We didn't book the Thames River boat ride but our guide Perla got us boat tickets since it was a sunny day. I'm glad we got to ride the boat, we saw much more of London compared to the Underground. Perla was a very friendly and awesome guide!

An entertaining and enjoyable mornings activity, especially for families with young children. Easy to find and easy walking pace with convenient stops. A fun way to find various film and scene locations, as well as seeing London in general. It is very much weather dependant, so bring an umbrella. Just to let you know there is a convenient coffee shop and toilets in the Southwark Cathedral opposite the meeting place.
