Your invitation to Hogwarts

Haven’t received your letter to Hogwarts yet? Consider this your invitation! On this 2-hour London Harry Potter walking tour, your local guide and Harry Potter aficionado takes you to all of the most important Harry Potter sites.

Famous Harry Potter scenes

You might be a mere muggle (sorry – let’s face it), but that doesn’t mean you can’t walk through the Harry Potter universe. Although the book was written in Edinburgh (visiting Edinburgh? See our Harry Potter tour there!), the films were shot in and around London. Stroll down Diagon Alley, past the Leaky Cauldron, and finally figure out why King’s Cross St. Pancras looks so familiar. The Ministry of Magic and even the inspiration for Gringotts have their home in London.

The story of J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling is truly one of the United Kingdom’s heroes. Defining rags to riches, she went from a single British mother on welfare, to someone who was only knocked off the billionaire’s list because she gave so much money to charity. Discover not only the magic of Harry Potter, but the magic of J.K. Rowling on the London Harry Potter tour!

What is a Select Tour?


Select Tours focus on a particular area or district of a city, a certain aspect of its history or culture, or take you outside the city on a day trip. Select Tours are perfect for those who have enjoyed an introduction to the city and wish to delve deeper into the stories the city has to offer. These tours often venture further afield and make use of local public transport.

As with the Free Tour, Select Tours are provided by local freelance guides in partnership with SANDEMANs NEW Europe, who bring their personal flair and expert knowledge to these specifically themed tours. Select tours have a fixed ticket price - we recommend purchasing your ticket in advance, either during a Free Tour or online.
