COVID-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Enjoy a walking tour visiting inside Christ Church College, to see and hear about both Harry Potter and Lewis Carroll’s legendary characters, such as Alice and the Mad Hatter. Book in advance to beat the queues at Christ Church, Oxford's most popular tourist attraction. Admire views onto Christ Church Meadows on the borders of the rivers Cherwell and Isis. See longhorn cattle graze and the dreamy spires of Merton College and Corpus Christi.

Access permitting, you will also see inside another Harry Potter film site, the Divinity School at the famous Bodleian Library, one of the oldest libraries in Europe. On any dates when Christ Church may be closed, this tour will visit the inside of New College, another great Hogwarts film site, instead. If this happens you also have the option to reschedule for a different tour or a different date.

On this tour, you will visit 2 of the 3 film sites (where and when access is permitted). While you may visit Divinity School, you will not visit inside the medieval library as it is not open to private guides. On Saturday mornings, Christ Church Hall is rarely open but the tour runs anyway as it's not a film site.

Important information
Know before you go
• If you book at the last minute the local partner can run the tour but cannot guarantee that you will skip the line
• In high season online tickets can sell out 1 week in advance so the tour will have to queue to buy tickets on the door
• Divinity School (the second film site at the Bodleian library) can close suddenly with no advance notice so entrance to the Divinity school cannot be guaranteed
• All entry fees are included in your ticket (please note that entry fees equate to over 1/3 of the adult public ticket price and over 1/2 of the child public ticket price)
