As a MASSIVE HP fan I was very excited about doing this tour but didn't expect to learn a lot more as I've been to the studios in Leavesden twice and have read a lot about the behind the scenes stuff. I was so wrong! It was so informative and so entertaining and I learnt so much (which has only... More

Our tourguide (John Lupin) was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic despite the freezing weather! I have loved harry potter since I was a kid and this was a great tour, saw film locations and inspirations for the book - my favorite was the real life Nocturn Alley!

This tour was awesome!!! We got to see a lot of amazing places in London, both filming locations and inspirations for the books! Our tour guide "Hagrid" was awesome! So animated and VERY knowledgable! Looks a lot like Hagrid too! The only thing I regret is forgetting to get a picture with him! Highly recommend!

Absolutely loved the Tour for Muggles. It is a must do for any HP fan, don't even think twice about going. So cool to hear stories behind the movies and the books and to see locations of the film. Our guide Ellie was fantastic, she had so much HP knowledge and answered all my tough questions with ease. Thanks Ellie

I highly recommend this tour for any HP fan especially early on in your visit to London! You'll see and learn about several historical sites along the way in addition to seeing quite a few filming locations. The guide was very friendly and entertaining. Overall it was a great use of time and money.

We took this tour as a family group of seven. There was plenty of Potter trivia (and ah-ha I see it moments) for the most intensely Potter engaged while still maintaining a stream of London and British history for others. Expect to walk through alleys and byways as you explore parts of London you may know well and will still... More

I took my 16-year old daughter and her best friend and we loved it. Our guide, "Hannah Weasley" was wonderful....full of positive energy and interesting information about HP and London's history. Highly recommended!

While I enjoyed the tour, my Potter-loving daughter did not. There's nothing wrong with the tour; it's just that the film locations around London really aren't that exciting. Most of them are from scenes that appear on-screen for just a few seconds. She had been expecting something more exciting, so it's important to manage kids' expectations about what they will...

My daughter and I read all of the Harry Potter books together and she has re-read them several times. When we told her we were traveling to London over Thanksgiving all she wanted to do was visit as many Harry Potter sites as possible. She had a smile on her face for the entire tour. Our guide, Ellie, was fantastic,... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
