Full description

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.

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 the Divinity School film site, 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, you will take part in a Harry Potter quiz to test your knowledge of the books and films. The guide will also describe how student life in Oxford compares with Hogwarts.

  • Guide
  • Detailed map of Oxford city center colleges, attractions and sights
  • Entrance to the Divinity School film site worth £2.50 per person
  • Inside visit of the medieval library upstairs (the library is not open to any tour operators to conduct guided tours)

Having never been to Oxford, this was a wonderful tour led by Michiel that connected literature and places around Oxford that served as inspiration for the Harry Potter series, as well as a deeper history. It was very interesting for my husband and me, our children under 10 were along for the ride mostly but our older one enjoyed parts of the tour!

This is what I wrote: I think Peter was the best guide ever booked for any tour we have been to. He went above and beyond anything reasonably expected from a tour guide. For almost three hours we were quizzed, guided, told stories about the history of Oxford and Harry Potter. The kids nevers once glimpsed at their phones! He kept our attention by beeing interesting and attentive to our needs. He gave us entry to colleges we normally would not have been able to enter into, we did not expect to see the Christ Church cathedral but luckily on the night of our tour there was a concert and free entrance. And what an ending to a perfect tour it was! The quire sang in the big cathedral their voices echoing from the walls making them stronger, the melody was divine. Had we gone around Oxford on our own it would have been a disaster. Peter even sent us some interesting documentaries connected to Oxford and gave us numerous tips on what else we could see and do ourserves. He made the whole family

The tour was excellent and when I next visit Oxford I will definitely be booking another one ! The tour guide was really knowledgeable , and made sure that all the group ( who spoke English to varying degrees ) clearly understood the main points of each place that was being discussed.
