Harry Potter Walking Tour for Muggles in London film locations

 

The famous bridges over the Thames (Tower, London, Millennium) where Harry and his friends flew under and over in The Order of the Phoenix.

 

Magnificent views of St. Paul's Cathedral. St Paul's Geometric Staircase was used in the Harry Potter films as the staircase to Professor Trelawney's Divination Tower.

 

The Golden Hinde Galleon ship. Considered the inspiration for the Durmstrang ship in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Interestingly it is also painted in the red and gold Gryffindor colours.

 

Entrance to the Leaky Cauldron: Borough Market.

Borough Market: where you will find the entrance to
Leaky Cauldron in the Harry Potter series

An unassuming shop underneath a bridge was brought to life in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron - the popular wizarding pub in the
Harry Potter novels.

 

Borough Market is a lively, old fashioned covered food market, one of the largest and oldest in London and maintains plenty of charm.

 

The outside of the notorious Clink Prison, with its ghoulish gibbet and skeleton hanging outside. Dating back to 1144, the oldest prison in London, the very name inspires dread in a person. Perfect inspiration for another well known prison in the Harry Potter series - Azkaban.


Westminster Underground where Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was filmed, showing Mr. Weasley and Harry on their way to visit the Ministry of Magic. If you are lucky you might just get a chance to re-enact your own spell here.


The Ministry of Magic visitor’s entrance at Great Scotland Yard.

Goodwin's Court- Knockturn Alley- Harry Potter Walking Tour for Muggles - Viator London

Goodwin's Court: inspiration for
Knockturn Alley from Harry Potter series

Here you will have a photo stop by the wall where the character
Ron Weasley posed at Great Scotland Yard (Ministry of Magic entrance).

 

The charming medieval road of Goodwin’s Court. Like many of the places in London, visited by J.K. Rowling herself and providing her with the inspiration for the darker destination of Knockturn Alley in her books.


Trafalgar Square (Location of the final Harry Potter film première). Near the end of your tour at the famous, vibrant, square where your guide will point out the sight of the film première of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows II.

 

One of J.K. Rowling's favourite streets in London - Cecil Court off Charing Cross Road inspiration for Diagon Alley. Your tour will finish here.

 

Cecil Court is a lovely street filled with old fashioned bookshops reminiscent of Flourish and Blotts, as we know it from the books.
