Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

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.

Awesome tour with an awesome guide

This ended up being a private tour for me and my friends because it was a weekday and no one else booked, which made the experience even better. Anna was a fantastic guide and her enthusiasm was contagious. I love that she really talked to us and it seemed like her suggestions and sights were tailored to what she understood about us. She was awesome and I would recommend this tour to any and everyone!

Irresponsible organizer cancelled minutes before the tour

They cancelled the tour on the day of the tour 30 minutes before it was supposed to start. There were 20+ participants who had already reached the venue and we're waiting like us. It was very irresponsible of the tour organizer to wait till the last moment before cancelling it. It was the Christmas day and people had to hire cycles or cabs to reach the venue since public transport doesn't work that day. 20+ people made an effort in vain. I recommend you book Harry Potter Tour through a different organizer. Also we are yet to receive our refund as it seems the organizer didn't inform viator about their cancelling.
