Some friends and I wanted a fun day out in London and after scouring the internet, we came across a company offering a Harry Potter film set walking tour. This sounded right up our street, so we booked this immediately.
The company calls themselves Muggle Tours, which I thought was really clever and their customer service was brilliant. I had a couple of queries prior to our tour and their response was so quick and helpful.
We met near London Bridge and our tour guide was easy to spot as he was wearing a cloak. This was one of biggest fears of my day allayed – I had been worried that we wouldn’t find the tour guide and we’d miss our much anticipated tour.
After being quickly divided in to our houses (my friend and I were in Gryffindor) we embarked on our tour. Throughout the tour, our lovely guide fired off some questions which we were awarded house points for getting the answers right. I thought this was really good fun and we found ourselves getting really competitive with the family with the 10-year-old from Slytherin who seemed to know everything there is to know about Harry Potter.
The tour takes you through all through London, showing you places where part of the films were shot. Some of these places I have walked past many time and not even realised.
Some of the highlights include –
The Leaky Cauldron
The visitors’ entrance to the Ministry of Magic
The site where Harry, Hermione and Ron infiltrate the Ministry of Magic
And much more..
As a day out in London, this is brilliant. We loved it as adults and I’m sure any Harry Potter loving child would love it too. It’s a great way of looking at London in a different way to how you always see it.
Tickets for the tour cost £12 for adults and £10 for kids. It takes about 2 ½ hours and boy is it a great tour.
