Movie locations in/around the City of London featuring 4 from Harry Potter


Let's go for a walk around four Harry Potter outdoor movie locations in London and pass a few others (eg James Bond, 101 Dalmations). We'll walk, take a Tube (subway) and a the classic London double-decker bus ride around four Harry Potter locations.

You'll get some great London history too. The mix will be about 50/50 Harry Potter. You'll see 'the City' - London's city-within-a-city, the financial district where ancient architecture rubs shoulders with the latest quirky glass and steel skyscrapers.

Please note no endorsement is claimed from the movie's owners/creators.

IMPORTANT: Please do not confuse this walking tour with the official studios tour located outside London. Thank you.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: usually we will start by the steps of St Paul's Cathedral at the statue of Queen Anne (nearest tubes St Paul's, Mansion House or Blackfriars). Meeting points will occasionally vary depending on your hotel location and the tour can also be run backwards.

Duration: 2 hours 30 min.

A Recent Review of this tour

Simon did a great job of keeping things interesting for both the kids and the adults in our group. We would highly recommend Simon to both family and friends. His knowledge and passion for the City of London was quite obvious.
