Full description

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 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?

Locations (11)

8. 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!
