Harry Potter – Muggle Tours


Muggle Tours

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.

Muggle Tours - Harry Potter Walking Tour

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
Knockturn Alley
The visitors’ entrance to the Ministry of Magic
The site where Harry, Hermione and Ron infiltrate the Ministry of Magic

And much more..

Muggle Tours - Harry Potter Walking Tour

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.

  1. Oh the boys loved it when we went and there was so much more to see that we missed, plus they’ve since seen all the films so they would love to revisit.

    • Sally Sally says:

      It was brilliant Laura. Yes, slightly older kids would enjoy it, it’s quite a lot of walking. But really interesting too.

  2. I wish I lived closer! My kids, they are 15 and 23, and my husband and I would love this! We love Harry Potter, in fact both of the kids just reread the series and we all rewatched the movies, it was awesome! I didn’t enter the contest, I would hate to take a chance away from someone who could actually attend. But if I ever get the chance I’ll take the trip and the tour. Sounds like great fun! Thanks for sharing at #WAYWOW, I’m pinning and sharing so that others can join in the fun!

    • Sally Sally says:

      Thanks so sweet Nikki. I think whoever wins it would be thrilled. I know there’s a lot to love about the books and films. No matter what age you are you can enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for hosting your link up.

  3. I LOVE HARRY POTTER SOOOOOOO MUCH!!! I would love to go on this film tour. I’ve visited Platform 9 3/4 many years ago and I’ve been to the studios. This tour and the Harry Potter World in America are next on my HP bucket list. This sounds like so much fun! (Despite the 10 year old know it all!) Thank you so much for linking to #whatevertheweather x

    • Sally Sally says:

      I’ve actually never seen the platform but I bet that’s a good photo opportunity. The Warner Bros studio is really good. I was blown away by this. Definitely one to add to the list Chloe.

  4. I never knew there were Harry Potter tours to see the film sights. I would love to go on this tour, although I would probably be competitive too and try and get all the answers right! I’m looking forward to my two boys being old enough to read and watch HP, I hope they love it as much as I do!
    Thanks for linking up to #Whatevertheweather 🙂 x

    • Sally Sally says:

      Yes they are great books for the little ones to grow up with. Ha ha. I’m glad it’s not just me that’s competitive about these things Jenny.

  5. Sounds excellent and the pictures look like you had a great day. My boy would love this so off to enter your competition now!

    • Sally Sally says:

      Yes it was a wonderful day out, so interesting and fun. The tour guide was really good. Good luck Zoe.

    • Sally Sally says:

      It was brilliant Erin. Definitely one of my favourite days out in London. I love finding the hidden gems in London’s architecture.

    I’ve heard of this but didn’t remember the details! My husband would love this – will definitely check it out! Thanks for sharing 🙂 #PicknMix

    • Sally Sally says:

      Hi Emma. You really should. It’s such a fun and different thing to do in London. Perfect for any HP fans.

  7. Sounds like you had a great day out. I have (adult) friends who would adore this, but as I’ve not seen the movies (although I love the books) I fear it would be lost on me! Great post #picknmix
