Get acquainted with the fantastical landmarks of Harry Potter’s world with this thematic walking tour through London. Meet your guide in Leicester Square, wind through London, and listen to loads of Harry Potter trivia about the filming locations.

Stroll through Diagon Alley where Harry purchased all his magical school supplies in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Then visit the entry to the Leaky Cauldron, the popular wizarding pub. Walk over the Millennium Bridge, the site of Lord Voldemort’s brutal muggle attack in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Continue along the Thames River from the Embankment to Tate Modern Museum to view key London sites that inspired J.K. Rowling’s tales. Experience the world through the author’s eyes as you see elements of muggle London spun into a magical patchwork.

Then travel by tube (make sure you have a valid Travelcard for Zone 1) to King’s Cross, where you’ll visit Platform 9¾. Stand where Harry, Ron, and Hermoine did as they waited for the Hogwarts Express, and pose for a photo with a disappearing luggage trolley. Your tour ends in the afternoon at King’s Cross Station.

AVOID! ITS A SCAM! UNPROFESSIONAL

AVOID! DO NOT FALL FOR IT. FRAUD! Totally unprofessional and misleading. Firstly our tour guide was very unprofessional giving us little introduction to the tour or information about Harry Potter. Secondly her way of showing historical locations within London were to show grainy footage clips of Harry Potter on her phone and state we do not need to visit that today as you've seen it on the phone. In fact majority of the locations were shown on the phone and the same was stated that we do not need to visit them today as you've now seen them. Thirdly, the "tour guide" hardly spoke, and when she did, she was so quiet that no one could hear her. Fourthly, the tour guide was so eager to cut our tour short, she stated due to seeing most places on her phone, the remaining tour will only take 25mins. At which case I ended it in within 15-20mins as it was clear I had been scammed. There are many other reasons to ilustate why this is a complete fraud. I have contacted Viator for a refund. I am awaiting to hear back.

The tour guide was hard to understand, spoke softly and I think we knew more about the movies than she did. She could not have been nicer but we didn't get much out of it.

It was my sons birthday and we had booked this. Although there was a chance it may not happen due to Covid-19, viator took the payment so we thought it was on and trekked to London. Waited over 30 minutes and nobody showed. Called the number and the lady who answered claimed she had nothing to do With the tour. Terribly disappointed

I bought a voucher for my Dad to go on this tour he said he arrived early and waited for 90mins. No one turned up to take the tour. I've been on a similar tour with a different company. Would not book with this company again.
