Harry Potter Walk in London
Take a walk through the Wizarding World with the Harry Potter Walk in London. Follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter as you explore the streets of London in search of its magical secrets.
The Harry Potter Walk in London is the perfect way to see the many iconic filming locations around the city. It also lets you get a taste of everyday life in London.
You will first meet your guide outside of the Palace Theatre. This is the home stage of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the newest and hugely successful instalment in the Harry Potter story.
Here your guide will sort the group into the four different houses of Hogwarts.
Throughout the tour you will get the chance to answer Harry Potter trivia questions that will earn points for your house.
From here you will begin to explore the city. Down London’s winding streets you will discover famous filming locations from the Harry Potter movies. You will also be brought to real-life locations that are mentioned throughout the books.
One of the most popular sites along this tour is Leadenhall Market. With its centuries-old buildings, many parts of this market were used to recreate Diagon Alley. The most important place being 42 Bull’s Head Passage. At this address you’ll find the shop front used for the Leaky Cauldron. We see Harry and Hagrid walk through here in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
On this tour you will also see Millennium Bridge. This structure was destroyed during a Death Eater battle in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Fortunately, that was only movie magic, and you can still see the bridge in all of its glory.
Remember in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, when Harry and Mr Weasley visited the Ministry of Magic? They entered using a red phone box situated beside a grand-looking building. Well, that building is, in fact, Old Scotland Yard, and it is a popular attraction for fans. With costumes provided by your tour guide, it’s definitely a great place to get a fun photo!
Along with the Harry Potter sites, you will also get a glimpse of other notable London locations.
See Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square (where the first Harry Potter premiere was shown), St. Paul’s Cathedral, and more!
After venturing through London, your tour will finish at Platform 9¾ in Kings Cross Station. Yet another opportunity for a fun photo to remember the trip by!
The Harry Potter Walk in London offers a relaxing and entertaining way to experience the Wizarding World. It also gives you the opportunity to soak in this amazing city! And you won’t need to clear your vault in Gringotts just to pay for it! So what are you waiting for?
