There isn’t one magic location in London that these taxi drivers can’t find.
On the Harry Potter London Taxi Tour, you’ll be sure to visit Old Scotland Yard. In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, this London landmark was used as the entrance to the Ministry of Magic. Now it is one of the most popular places to get a Potter-inspired photo.
Australia House is another popular spot for Harry Potter enthusiasts in the city. Opened by King George V in 1918, it boasts a 49-metre Exhibition Hall decorated with nearly 1100 tonnes of Australian marble. The vaulted ceilings and grandiose design made it the perfect place to film Gringotts Wizarding Bank.
Your driver will also bring you to the Leadenhall and Borough markets. Both of these areas were used to film scenes for Diagon Alley and the Leaky Cauldron. They’ll also make a stop at Hardy’s Original Sweetshop, where you stock up on Harry Potter themed goodies!
As you pass through Lincoln’s Inn Fields, be sure to try and spot Number 12 Grimmauld Place.
The street was used as the filming location for the Order of the Phoenix HQ. Also, as you cross over Lambeth Bridge, try to picture the Knight Bus manoeuvring through the traffic. Squeezing between gaps like only a magical bus can!
You’ll also get to go across Millenium Bridge, which was destroyed by Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Thankfully, that was just movie magic. The bridge is still fully intact. Just hope there aren’t any wizards duelling while you’re there.
Of course, the Harry Potter London Taxi Tour makes sure to stop at the most important wizarding location in the whole city: Kings Cross Station. Here you’ll get the chance to try and push your trolley through the magical wall and on to Platform 9 ¾. Failing that, it’s still a great place to take a fun photo! The perfect way to remember this fun, magical, and family-friendly adventure.
