Leicester Square is also home to one of the most celebrated and recognisable cinemas in the world, the Odeon, which has been the venue for the premieres of all the Harry Potter films.

Leadenhall Market in the City of London was the location for Diagon Alley in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Jan 2019

Tina did a fabulous job of keeping our girls engaged with questions, facts and videos. The tour was tailored to meet our families needs so we deviated a bit and Tina showed the girls some London historical sights too. It was a perfect tour to do after a 9 hour flight. Tina made London and Harry Potter come to life.
