Go behind the scenes and discover secrets about Harry Potter
Your tour will start at Westminster Station and here you will retrace the journey taken by Harry and Mr Weasley on their visit to The Ministry of Magic.
From here your magical guide will lead you through Westminster past the home of the non magic Prime Minster. Then its on to the secret entrance to the Ministry of Magic as seen in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Magic folk may spot it. If you’re not magic then you may not. Not far from here you will see the spot where Harry, Ron and Hermione had to hide in a scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1.
As the locations are spread far and wide you will need to take a short tube journey. So you need either an Oystercard, a contactless card or a Travelcard valid to travel in Zone 1. After the tube journey you will arrive in the City of London. See the magnificent cathedral with the magical spiral stairway that leads to Professor Sybil Trelawney’s Divination classroom. You may also recognise it from the spin off movie ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.
Make sure you hold onto your wand as you cross the the wobbly bridge destroyed by the flying dark evil spirits in Harry Potter and the Blood Prince. You dont want to fall into the River Thames.
You will also see the entrances to the Leaky Cauldron pub located in two of Londons oldest markets. Stand on the spot where the triple decker Knight Bus pulled up outside the Leaky Cauldron from Prisoner of Azkaban. Also walk in Harry and Hagrids footsteps from Philosopher Stone. Both magical and non-magical people mix at these locations.
