Explore the historic monuments of London and the Harry Potter film locations in an iconic taxi cab. Go to Platform 9 ¾, follow Harry’s broomstick flight along the River Thames, and don’t forget the palaces and churches of old London town!
What to Expect
Enjoy the best of both worlds on a full-day, 8-hour sightseeing tour of London by iconic black cab, and discover all London's historic monuments and all the film locations from the Harry Potter series of blockbuster movies.
A private guide will take you past landmarks that include Westminster Abbey, where British royalty has been crowned since 1066. Stand outside Buckingham Palace and watch the traditional Changing of the Guards ceremony. See the seat of government at the Houses of Parliament, complete with Big Ben in its Clock Tower.
Pass the fabulous department store of Harrods, and the stylish shops of Kensington. Then stop for lunch in an historic pub, right on the banks of the River Thames. Continue to the Tower of London, and walk around the most impressive medieval fortress in Britain. See the old and new buildings of the City of London, the square mile that the Romans built more than 2,000 years ago.
During the course of your tour, you will visit shops that are over 300 years old and still trading, visit a pub that sells corpses, see a house with false windows, and learn the story of Winston Churchill’s cigar chair; and that's just for starters.
You will also look for all the locations of the legendary Harry Potter movies, from the Leaky Cauldron of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone,” to the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.” Discover the bridge destroyed by Death Eaters in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” Trace the broomstick flight down the Thames that Harry took in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” And drive to King’s Cross Station to stand by Platform 9 ¾.
