Full description

The Harry Potter London Walk takes in the most famous locations from the movies.

You’ll have the chance to get your picture taken at Old Scotland Yard. The exterior of this building appears in two movies: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Part 1. This is where the characters go to enter the Ministry of Magic.

Also from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, you’ll stop at the Westminster tube station. This is where Mr Weasley struggles to get through the ticket barriers when heading to board a train with Harry. In true Mr Weasley style, he is amazed by the muggle technology.

Borough Market / The Leaky Cauldron

This tour will also bring you through the Leadenhall and Borough markets. Locations here were used for the Leakey Cauldron and Diagon Alley throughout the movies. These markets are also great places to pick up some tasty treats or souvenirs from your time in London.

You’ll also get to walk under Millenium Bridge, which was destroyed by Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Fortunately, the bridge collapsing was just some movie magic. In real life, it is still standing and structurally sound.

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!

8. Leadenhall Market / Diagon Alley
