Harry Potter Tours

Our Harry Potter tours always work their magic on our younger customers and their parents. The Harry Potter films were shot on location in England and you can pick and mix destinations from the suggestions below.

Warner Bros Studio Tour

This is where all eight of the Harry Potter films were brought to life – and it’s now a hit attraction. You can step behind the scenes and see an amazing array of sets, costumes and props (including Harry’s Nimbus 2000 and Hagrid’s motorcycle). Find out how the special effects were created, stroll inside the Great Hall, explore Dumbledore’s office… this really is a magical tour. You’ll need to book well in advance, as there’s a long waiting list for tickets.

London Zoo

Harry Potter first realised there was something different about himself when he held a conversation with a snake in the Reptile House at London Zoo. See how you get on chatting to the animals on your visit to this wonderful institution in Regent’s Park…

Paltform 9 3/4 at King's Cross Station

King’s Cross Station

Have a photograph taken beneath the mystical Platform 9 3/4 sign, but please don’t try and run through the wall unless you are a witch or a wizard! We’ll show you the magical platform where the Hogwart’s Express departs…

Other London destinations

We’ll do a whistle-stop tour of other destinations in the popular series, including Leadenhall Market (which Harry and Hagrid walked through), and the exterior of Australia House (the setting for Gringott’s bank).

Further afield

Our extended tours can cover Oxford (the setting for many of the scenes inside Hogwart’s), Alnwick Castle in Northumberland (where the Quidditch games were filmed), and Gloucester Cathedral (dorms, ghost scenes, and the Gryffindor house secret entrance). There’s also Durham Cathedral (snow scenes), Lacock Abbey (Mrs Norris cat scenes), Goathland Station (‘Hogsmead Station’) and Picket Post Close (where Harry lived with the despicable Durleys).
