Overview
There are numerous places in London that inspired the Harry Potter book series—you just have to know where to look for them. This guided Harry Potter tour takes you through the city to see the sights that provided inspiration for Diagon Alley, the Leaky Cauldron, and Platform 9 3/4. You’ll explore the city with fellow Potter fans, and hear fun, behind-the-scenes info from your guide along the way.
Highlights
  • Visit the real-life places that inspired J.K. Rowling on this tour
  • Your guide brings the magic of the book to life with little-known facts 
  • Trek through London as a guide points out key spots, such as Platform 9 3/4
  • Easy-to-find meeting spot in Leicester Square
  • Choose between two tour times to fit a busy London sightseeing schedule
What to Expect
This Harry Potter walking tour in London meets in Leicester Square. Once you’ve met your guide and fellow Potter fans, head out through the streets. Your guide takes you to places that inspired the fictional places made up by J.K. Rowling, including Diagon Alley, the Leaky Cauldron, and Platform 9 3/4. You’ll also stop by coffee shops and other spots where the author sat to write some of the book series. Plus, walk across Millennium Bridge, the site of Lord Voldemort’s brutal muggle attack in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. As you walk, your guide tells you entertaining behind-the-scenes information and also has props and photos to make your experience even more memorable. Your magical adventure ends at King’s Cross Station.

Alexandra was very nice but the tour was a mix of Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes and is more accurately described as a tour of movie scenes filmed in or inspired by various London sights. Alexandra also introduced us to OTHER sights filmed in the HP movies but didn't take us
