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 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, 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.

A special day in Oxford! I do strongly recommend this tour and Naima, the guide, for those who like to enter a word of history and magic. Thanks to her passion and knowledge both me and the kids enjoyed so much the visit and we will have a special memory of Oxford. The kids were so much involved that the 2 hours flew. Thanks again.

We had a phenomenal experience with Peter at Oxford. My daughter, a ferocious and passionate fan of Harry Potter had a blast. His knowledge of the sites and the extra stories made the tour really special. We also appreciated the quick stop for a shake at Mo mo’s that was a must for a hot weather, it made three kids very happy! Appreciate the experience and will definitely recommend for any family who wants to spend a fun couple of hours in Oxford and want to make it an unforgettable experience!!

Peter guided our tour. He's really very funny, friendly and knows a lot about Oxford and also Harry Potter. He took his time and even extended the tour a bit. Unfortunately we couldn't look at the university library - but that was due to the fact that the students are doing their exams there. All in all very recommendable! Oxford is beautiful!
