A must see Harry Potter movie location has to be Platform 9¾ at King's Cross Station. Here you can have your photo taken running through the wall and then after visit the Garry Potter shop to buy your wizarding supplies. The adjacent St. Pancras station appeared in Harry Potter and the Chamber Secrets in the flying Ford Anglia scene. Marvel at the ornate Gothic Revival architecture-you can imagine yourself flying around the splendid clock tower!
Wizarding London & Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter
Our Wizarding London tour always works its magic on our younger customers and their parents. The Harry Potter films were shot on location in England and you can pick and mix destinations from the suggestions below.
Thames bridges featured heavily in the films-Tower Bridge (flying broomstick scene from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Millennium Bridge (Death Eaters scene from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Lambeth Bridge (where the Knight Bus squeezed between two normal London buses).
We'll take you to the Death Eaters attack location at Piccadilly Circus and Great Scotland Yard where Ron and Harry enter the Ministry of Magic. Gringotts Wizarding Bank was filmed at Australia House in London's Strand and 12 Grimmauld Place (the magically disguised ancestral home of Sirius Black) can be seen at Claremont Square. Though the inspiration for building is thoiught to have come from Lincoln’s Inn Fields-we can go there too if you like.
The stunning location of Leadenahll Market was used for Diagon Alley & the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron wizarding pub. Originally though the pub's entrance was filmed at Borough Market along with scenes for the Knight Bus & the Third Hand Bookshop (actually a traditional Victorian pub where you can stop off for lunch).
Harry Potter first realised there was something different about himself when he held a conversation with a snake in the Reptile House at London Zoo. See how you get on chatting to the animals on your visit to this wonderful institution in Regent’s Park.
Visit also Westminster Tube Station-one of the entrances to the Ministry of Magic and where Arthur Wesley got stuck at the entrance barriers. Another popular stop off is Cecil Court-thought to have been the inspiration for Diagon Alley.
We'll then magically whisk you away to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London—The Making of Harry Potter tour where you can enjoy original costumes, props and amazing sets from the Harry Potter films.
Lots to see here including the impressive model of Hogwarts castle meticulously made by the art department for the first Harry Potter film.
Please note - you will need to purchase tickets for the Harry Potter Studio Tour—Official Site—Warner Bros. before the tour. We can advise on this. The exact itinerary on the day may alter depending on what you want to see and also the time of the Warner Bros. tour.
Our extended tours can cover Oxford (multiple settings for many of the scenes inside Hogwart’s including Hogwarts Infirmary, the oak tree where Malfoy was turned into a ferret by Mad-Eye Moody and the staircase where Professor McGonagall meets Harry), Alnwick Castle in Northumberland (where the Quidditch games were filmed and where Harry first climbed aboard a broomstick), and Gloucester Cathedral (dorms, ghost scenes, and the Gryffindor house secret entrance).
There’s also Durham Cathedral (corridors in Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone), Lacock Abbey (Hogwarts corridors and classrooms), Goathland Station ('Hogsmead Station') and Picket Post Close ('4 Privet Drive' where Harry lived with the despicable Dursleys).
Some of these locations make for multi-day tours and there is always the opportunity to combine with other great UK sites and attractions. Contact us with your requirements and magic up an itinerary for you!
