Begin your magical Harry Potter-themed tour at your central London accommodation, where you’ll climb aboard an iconic black taxi and greet your private driver-guide.

The first stop is Gringott’s Bank, located on the Strand and otherwise known as Australia House, where you’ll admire the statue-shrouded exterior of the goblin-run bank.

Then, follow Harry’s broomstick route along the Thames River, admire the grand architecture of Leadenhall Market—home to the entrance of the Leaky Cauldron, and capture photographs outside of the Third Hand Book Emporium.

See, too, the spot on Platform 9 ¾ where Harry and Ron disappear at Kings Cross rail station, and stroll over Lambeth Bridge, on which the Knight Bus squeeze between two red double-decker buses during 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.'

Throughout the tour, your guide also points out iconic London landmarks including Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament while combining fun Harry Potter facts and gossip with historical and cultural information.

Conclude your tour back at your London accommodation.
