Full description

Walk in the footsteps of your favourite wizards (and witches) around the muggle world of London. Meet your guide in Soho and find out which House you belong in. Head down the real Diagon Alley, where Harry buys his first wand in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” Then visit the entrance to The Leaky Cauldron, the secret wizarding inn.

Stand on the bridge destroyed by the Death Eaters in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” Your guide is a Harry Potter enthusiast, armed with weird and wonderful film trivia. Take part in their quiz and use your knowledge to earn points. May the best House win!

Visit the sites that inspired J.K. Rowling, from Shakespeare’s Globe to St. Paul’s Cathedral. Go to King’s Cross station, home of Platform 9 ¾, where you could win a chance to take your photo with the disappearing trolley – the perfect souvenir for wizarding folk. Your tour ends here.

This walking tour was a brilliant way to introduce my 9 and 3/4 year old to London on her first trip! Our guide Sam (the man!) delivered the tour with great enthusiasm and knowledge of London city and the magical world of Harry Potter. Great fun way to see the sites. The highlight of our weekend!

Our guide Cate was bubbly, enthusiastic and her personality was so bright it made the tour even more fun. Full of knowledge about the Harry Potter films and books, she also imparted other snippets of general London trivia as we discovered the various parts of London that featured in the magical world of Harry Potter movies. I enjoyed the tour as much as my niece and nephew who were the ones I'd really booked the tour for!

We had an amazing afternoon. Helena couldn't just answer Harry Potter related questions, but also historical ones and made it an unforgettable experience for us

We did a Harry Potter walking tour. Some great locations and interesting facts. The guide was absolutely brilliant, clearly a fan and knew what he was talking about, not just reciting a script. Great value for money and a great day out. #Hagrid

I went on april 26th. I booked the tour pretty last minute through airbnb but they were fully accommodating. I was placed in a tour group being led by Tom. I've seen a few folks complaining about tour size, perhaps I got lucky but my group was around 15-20 people and it didn't feel like it was too crowded or anything. Now Tom was great, Funny guy and super engaging with all of the tour members. He would chat with us about London and give good recommendations of things to see and do while we were traveling between tour stops. I also felt like I learned a lot and the fan trivia was much appreciated. Also hats off to Tom for giving us insider tips on avoiding some of the tourist lines to see cool attractions. We covered a lot fo ground over the length of the tour and I was happy to get to see so much on a pretty cheaply priced tour. Overall I would totally recommend it, even if you just want an excuse to see a good chunk of London.

A really fun and top value for money walking tour, seeing some hidden parts of London and some more well known, but brought alive by a really knowledgeable and insightful guide. Nic was excellent and answered loads of questions, and made the tour come alive, particularly for the kids. Highly recommended.
