Uncover the magical secrets of England’s capital on the Harry Potter Bus Tour of London. Explore the historic streets and iconic buildings that brought the Wizarding World to the big screen.
Traversing the hustle and bustle of London’s city centre, your guide will take you to the most famous locations from the 8 Harry Potter movies. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.
The Harry Potter Bus Tour of London reveals the magical side of this muggle city.
You’ll also get plenty of chances to get off the bus, stretch your legs, and get up close and personal with your favourite landmarks. These include Old Scotland Yard, known to diehard fans as the visitor’s entrance to the Ministry of Magic. In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, we see Harry and Mr Weasley come here ahead of Harry’s trial. The immediately-recognisable building has now become a popular photo stop for visitors.
You’ll also get to see Lambeth Bridge, which featured in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. After enduring an already bumpy ride, Harry nearly met his end when the Knight Bus faced off with two double-deckers while crossing this bridge. His panic was for nothing though, as the magical bus squeezed between the oncoming vehicles, unnoticed by any muggles.
Leadenhall is another popular filming location hidden among London’s winding streets. The Leaky Cauldron is located here in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. We see Harry and Hagrid enter it in order to proceed on to Diagon Alley. This is the perfect opportunity for you to literally follow in Harry and Hagrid’s footsteps!
Speaking of Diagon Alley, this tour also gives you the opportunity to visit Gringotts Bank. Australia House, where scenes for the bank were filmed, is in itself an important London landmark. It was opened by King George V himself in 1918.
As the tour comes to an end, your driver will take you to possibly the most famous Harry Potter location in London: Kings Cross Station. Here you’ll have the chance to grab a fun photo at the wall leading to Platform 9 ¾. Who knows, maybe your wizarding powers will even allow you to travel through to the other side.
The Harry Potter Bus Tour of London offers a chance to visit all of these locations and more! It also makes a stop at the official Warner Bros. store, where you can pick up some magical souvenirs! It really is the perfect day out for Harry Potter fans of all ages! Book now!
