London, United Kingdom

Experience hosted by Mark

  1. 2.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

Join me as we venture into the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter in London! We will journey through the city and learn the history of JK Rowling and Harry Potter in London.

On this walking tour of London's streets we will watch clips from the movies while I regale you with behind-the-scenes stories of those locations as well as the history of JK Rowling's time in London. Our first stop will be the entrance to Diagon Alley, before we pop down to see the Ministry of Magic, and find out which Leaky Cauldron has the best tacos, as well as others I don't want to spoil here.

I will also share some of the strangest, funniest non-HP facts I've learned about London along the way.

We will finish at Borough Market, London's top street food destination, with King's Cross just a separate Tube ride away.

PLEASE be aware the tour is offered in English only, and it is largely story-based, so a better-than-basic conversational grasp of English is essential.

While witches and wizards of all ages are welcome, due to the amount of walking and the content, I more recommend it for ages 11+.

Strictly one person per slot, group limit 12. No exceptions.

Step-free route for wheelchairs available, message for details.

This London street walking tour is not affiliated with the WB Studio Tour at Watford.
Other things to note
Every person (over 11yo) will need an Oyster card or contactless payment method with at least £2.40.

The tour contains about 90 minutes of brisk walking so make sure little legs are up for that!

We had so much fun and got to go to some hidden jems that we were never able to discover on our own! Ryan was great, and very patient to me and my 13yo brother's many questions. We definitely recommend this tour.
