Explore Harry Potter’s York
Welcome to the premiere of See Your City’s Harry Potter themed tour of York. If you’re a blockbuster buff or silver screen scholar, who loves nothing more than losing yourself in the magic of movies, then boy do we have a treat for you!
Monique is a wonderful guide! I loved the whole tour, and she told us the most wonderful facts. I mean I saw my self as a “okay” big HP fan, but I’m definitely not a death eater, just full blood 😉 the tour even has its own little house cup! Simply amazing! Full respect and love for her Harry wisdom from Denmark 🇩🇰🇩🇰
Highly recommend this tour. Our guide Monique was brilliant. She was able to give us so much information about Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling but also about Edinburgh itself in a really engaging way. Myself and my 11 year old thoroughly enjoyed this. Thank you Monique
I did this tour with my 9 year old daughter and we absolutely loved it!
Our tour guide was Monique and she was absolutely fantastic. She managed to create a tour which was engaging for both adults and children. She really brought the group together and got us chatting about all things Harry Potter on a very cold Edinburgh day.
She has great knowledge of Edinburgh and, more importantly, of all things Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling!
Very informative and lots of fun. Would thoroughly recommend.
Monique was excellent. She was energetic, sweet, patient, and an incredibly knowledgeable and loyal Harry Potter fan. I especially enjoyed the bits of local history peppered throughout the tour, as well as the House-sorting and trivia competition. I would recommend this tour to anyone, especially if Monique is leading. 50 points to Hufflepuff! 🙂
Excellent tour, learned a lot from Monique – she really knows her stuff! Would recommend to anyone who doesn’t mind a little walking
Kristel was such a fun guide and really made the books come to life with quizzes and wands. Brilliant tour!
The tour was lovely and you get to discover an alternative London. The Maltese tour guide was absolutely amazing. Thank you
It was an amazing experience! We get to know several hidden places in London, places that inspired the books/movies, and several fun/interesting facts about Harry Potter.
Our guide, Riccardo, was really nice, fun and smart. He gave us many informations regarding the making of Harry Potter, as well as some facts I didn’t know regarding J.K. Rowling’s and the Harry Potter world.
Other than that, the interactive game where he asked questions about the movie and we won points for out houses made everything more fun and interesting.
Definitely worth it, specially if you’re a real fan!
Gabriel gave us a fabulous overview of London and the scenes filmed in Harry Potter. Lots of easy walking, 2 rides on the tube, and interactive quizzes.
Our 8-year-old granddaughter loved it! She loved everything about the tour. Our tour was about the movie scenes from in London and it made such a connection with our granddaughter that she enjoyed everything in London after that. We highly recommend it.
Our guide Perla was great. Her enthusiasm made it a tour that was worth wile. It’s is a nice way to see potter but also Londen spots!
Paid for a day trip for my birthday with a friend and this was worth its money. Tour guide was funny and friendly, knowledgable and helpful. Was great fun, didn’t realise how fast the time had gone. Not a boring moment. Would definitely go again!
On our last day in London, we found this tour through London and really enjoyed the places that our tour guide Natalie showed us.
Especially Nocturne Alley and the street with the magic book shop have been worth it. Also it’s been really cool to finally get the connections between movie an the real places where Harry Potter scenes have been shot. Thanks Natalie! It was a blast 😉
Join The London Cheese Crawl for two and a half hours of non-stop cheese: from swanky blue cheese and gooey grilled cheeses, to cheesy jokes and interactive cheese-themed quizzes and competitions. They’ve Caerphilly conducted the best route, so you’re in very Gouda hands. Plus, with masks required to take part in the tour, and guides using social distancing tools to keep everyone at a safe distance from one another, you’ll be in safe hands during your cheese-fuelled romp around town.
See Your City offer fascinating and entertaining tours in five languages (English, Italian, French, German, and Spanish). And they’re not your standard tours either; fully interactive, and filled with quizzes and re-enactments, these entertaining wanders are a brilliant day out for all. Oh, and all these tours have been given the “good to go” certification by Visit England, meaning you’ll be in safe, sanitised hands throughout the walk. So, let’s dive into what’s on offer!
See Your City’s inventive events are led by a charismatic cadre of comedians and actors, who take you down haunted alleyways, feed you Mayfair’s finest blue cheese, and invite you to explore the mystery of Jack the Ripper (though not all at once!)
The guide was excellent,a great character and sense of humor.
He new his facts and explained everything with great humor, and we never
A great guide with a thorough knowledge of the subject.He had a great sense of humor, and was a real character. Being a real cockney and knowing the facts I really appreciated th tour.
Would recommend to anyone.
I took my mum and dad on the Jack The Ripper tour, and they loved it (having been slightly sceptical). The guide was incredibly well-informed and managed to avoid being too ghoulish with the details. A good way to see the East End too, highly recommended.
My partner took me on a Jack the Ripper tour for our anniversary, I have been on several other JTR tours and was hoping for a fresh angle. The tour guide was great fun and explained the story in a way that was entertaining but not exploitative. The tour was very atmospheric and despite considering myself an expert I learned a thing or two about my favourite true crime case! Would definitely recommend to any budding Ripperologists.
My friend and I had such a great time on this tour. The tour leader was very informative and was very vibrant in her position. She took us to quite a few places and we were able to taste very nice wine and cheese. She played a quiz game with everyone throughout the tour which was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this tour
