Marvel in recognition at the sites of the Harry Potter movies’ famous scenes on your Harry Potter walking tour. Take a walk down the fictional Diagon Alley, hidden from the Muggle world that lurks nearby; see the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron, featured in the first movie; and stand on the bridge that was destroyed in the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Meet your guide in Leicester Square, then after a short tube ride (make sure you have a valid Travelcard for Zone 1) to King's Cross, there's a great photo opportunity before your tour ends on the mythical Platform 9¾, where Harry caught the Hogwarts Express to school. Make sure you bring a camera. Packed with Harry Potter trivia and anecdotes throughout, you’ll see all these sights and more on your 2.5 hour walking tour.

View the city sights from the Thames River bank, walk from Embankment to the famous Tate Modern Museum. Along the way, let your guide give you the inside scoop on the London attractions that inspired J.K. Rowling’s vision, and see how real-life London sneaks into the magical world she invented.

The best tour to taky, as a Harry potter fan, as a person who reads a lot, or simply wants to discover parts of central london and its different history....lovely!!!! I would do it again.

We arrived a little late, so I did not get our tour guide's name, but he was excellent...funny and knowledgeable. I enjoyed it so much! My only complaint was with the tour instructions I received when I booked. It said to meet at the ticket office at Leicester Square. We thought it meant at the Tube station especially since you needed an Oyster ticket for the tour. Turns out we should have gone to a ticket office in Leicester Square above ground which was a very large area and without the help of the local police, we would have never found it, and missed the tour which would have really ticked me off. SO, please clarify the meet directions!!

We had a Scottish guide who was very funny and told us lots of extra facts about other movies as well as Harry Potter on our way around London. Lots of walking, so wear comfy shoes and bring your umbrella if it looks like rain, as the tour goes on! Also have a tube ticket for this tour.

Great guide - Even with the rain, he made it comfortable - learned so much more than just Harry Potter inspiration

Was a great tour, I was on my own so perhaps not as animated as it could have been in a larger group and It was incredibly cold.

Good tour, guide knew a lot but the group was way too big. At times it was hard to hear/it's hard to keep everyone together

It was okay but the Harry Potter element of the walk was more incidental than being the main theme.

My rating is probably not fair because there are really so few places in London that had actual scenes in the films.
I don't remember if we were told ahead of the tour, but we needed a ticket on the Underground for part of the tour.
I DO like that he took us to the other side of the river and I would not have gone there on my own.

The tour was the most disappointing part of our trip to London. The tour guide arrived 10 minutes late so we stood out in the cold rain waiting for her. The tour guide talked way too much and didn’t do enough walking, and she talked about topics other than Harry Potter. Not worth the money or time.
