Covid-19 safety measures

The comfort and safety of our clients and staff is our top priority. Our covid-ready strategy puts multiple steps in place so that we are able to re-open safely and still deliver a fabulous service.

FACE COVERINGS

In line with government guidelines face coverings must be worn by all occupants of the vehicle at all times. If you do not have a face covering you will not be allowed to travel. There are a few exceptions: face coverings do not have to be worn if the occupant is under 11 years of age, has a disability or medical condition that prevents safe use, requires a translator or if the vehicle has been hired for self-drive and the occupants are all from the same household or bubble.

TEMPERATURE CHECKS

We have purchased digital (non-invasive) thermometers so that the temperature of all participants can be quickly and easily read. Anyone that produces an abnormal reading will not be allowed to travel. They will then be advised to self-isolate and obtain a COVID-19 test as soon as possible. Our drivers have been trained to test themselves in front of clients and to show all participants the result for further peace of mind.

CAR CLEANING

We have purchased a professional car cleaning fog machine. This vaporises the antibacterial liquid into an antiseptic smoke / fog, which then sanitises every square-inch of the car’s interior within 5 minutes of use. This will allow all participants to enter each car with the knowledge that this is the most sterile environment modern technology will allow us to create.

HAND SANITISER

Hand sanitiser can be found in every car. All participants will be asked to sanitise their hands before they enter the vehicle.

ANTIBACTERIAL WIPES

Biodegradable antibacterial wet wipes are available in every car. High contact areas such as door handles, car keys, steering wheels etc. will be wiped down after they have finished being used.

GLOVES

Gloves are not mandatory but are encouraged should the participants so wish. Our drivers will be sporting vintage leather driving gloves that are regularly cleaned as an additional precaution.

VENTILATION

The windows of the car must be open while occupants are inside to allow free-flowing air throughout the vehicle. Fortunately, all of our cars have full-length retractable sunroofs that allow the car to have a similar look and feel to a convertible. The most effective way to ensure quality ventilation (and great views!) is to have the roof open should the weather permit it.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

Obviously it is difficult to effectively social distance in any vehicle, let alone a Mini! All we ask is that members of different households stay 2 meters apart when they are outside of the vehicle and keep contact to a minimum when inside. Please default to the ‘1 meter plus where possible’ government standard when 2 meters is not practical. We have re-written our tour routes to factor in more regular stops so that your guide can talk to you out of the car and at a safe distance.

If we all stay alert and diligently follow the covid-ready strategy guidelines set out above, we will be able to return to what we love. We cannot wait to show off this incredible city in a unique and engaging manner. Thank you for continuing to support us and we very much look forward to welcoming you safely aboard soon.

Full description

Some of the well-known stops throughout London are:

Leadenhall – Lined with buildings dating back to the 1800s, this street played an important role in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. It is here that we see Harry and Hagrid enter The Leaky Cauldron for the first time. The shopfront that doubled as the pub is actually an optician.

Millennium Bridge – This bridge was famously used as the setting for a Death Eater battle in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In that instance, it was actually destroyed, but thankfully that was only some movie magic!

Lincoln’s Inn Fields – This charming square of buildings doesn’t seem particularly magical at first. That is until you realise that it is the setting of Number 12 Grimmauld Place, headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix.

Piccadilly Circus – Fleeing from Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, Harry, Ron and Hermoine apparate straight here, nearly getting run down by a No. 19 bus. You shouldn’t have the same problem in your Mini Cooper.

Old Scotland Yard – It was here that Harry and Mr. Weasley entered the Ministry of Magic in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

These are just a few of the many sites around the city

And what you see on this tour is completely up to you. Your route is bespoke and tailor-made to your liking, allowing you to make the most of your trip.

Your local chauffer guide will also entertain you with endless movie knowledge, and even some Harry Potter trivia questions! And all of this before reaching your final destination: King’s Cross Station. Home to the magical Platform 9 ¾.

The Small Car Harry Potter Tour of London is a unique and novel way of experiencing the Wizarding World. It is also a magical way to see London.
