Harry Potter walking tour - what to expect

Your starting point for the tour is in Leicester Square, where you will meet your guide. As the some of the distances involved are too far to walk in the time available for the tour, you will need to supply your own Travelcard for zone 1, or Oyster card to take the journey by underground between Leicester Square and Kings Cross Station, in the north of the city centre.


Here there is a great photo opportunity before your tour ends to visit the Harry Potter Platform 9¾, where Harry caught the Hogwarts Express to school.


Your tour takes you down the fictional Diagon Alley, (Leadenhall Market), hidden from the Muggle world that lurks nearby, a superb and ornate Victorian covered market. Here you can see the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron - featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.


At the Millennium Bridge you get dramatic views of St. Paul's Cathedral,

imagining it as it was destroyed in The Half Blood Prince by Lord Voldemort's

Death Eaters.


You will view the city sights from the Thames River bank and walk from Embankment to the famous Tate Modern Museum.


Your guide will give you the inside scoop on the London attractions which inspired J.K. Rowling's vision, and you can see how real-life London sneaks into the magical world she invented.

Finally we visit King Cross Station where Harry and Ron first meet and then disappear through the brick wall at Platform 9¾, plus you'll see St Pancras station over which Ron and Harry fly in their blue Ford Anglia.
