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.

Itinerary

St Paul's Cathedral
The Death Eaters' Bridge (for great views of the Thames)
The 'real Hogwarts'
The Leaky Cauldron
The Bank of England
Platform 9 3/4
There will be at least one subway ride and one double-decker bus ride!

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Hotel, Suggested by Guide: We can run the tour in either direction. I think it flows best from St Paul's Cathedral (meet outside the Starbucks in front of the cathedral steps, near the Queen Anne statute). Alternatively we can meet at Kings Cross (by the Harry Potter Gift Store) if that fits your plans better.

End Point Options: Hotel

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.
