Full description

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.

Locations (9)

6. Borough Market / The Leaky Cauldron

London’s Borough Market serves as the location of the Leaky Cauldron in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Dating back to the 12th century, its centuries-old buildings and bustling atmosphere make it the perfect place to hide a magical pub!

South of the Thames, and just a short distance from London Bridge tube station, Borough Market is the perfect place for any Potter fan to take a stroll and soak up the Wizarding World.

Walking along Stoney Street, make sure to stop at No.7, a small flower shop under the railway bridge called Chez Michele. This is the real-life location of the Leaky Cauldron. Also on Stoney Street, just next door at No.8, is another shopfront that might look familiar. This building was also used for the Third Hand Emporium and appeared in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It was here that Harry first met the hapless Gilderoy Lockhart and the sinister Lucious Malfoy.

And while you’re here, make sure to explore all the wonderful things this market has to offer. Among the countless stalls you’ll be sure to find produce from far and wide. Whether you’re looking for fresh fruit, souvenirs to bring back home, or just a quick cup of coffee, the market has you covered!
