If you want to see all the Potter-related attractions, you won’t have to look very far. There are so many Harry Potter features in and around London you could be walking past the Ministry of Magic without even realising it!
Join us on a Harry Potter walking tour to see iconic buildings, streets, and neighbourhoods which inspired JK Rowling and appeared in the films; our guides are as educated about the Harry Potter world as any muggle can be!
Want to hear more about Harry, Ron, Hermione and the gang on a magical tour? Be sure to come for a walk to learn more about the magical world of Harry Potter. We will take a stroll down Diagon Alley, and check out some shops selling unique and one-of-a-kind Potter-related merchandise that you won’t find anywhere else! And we might even accidentally end up in Knockturn Alley… So if you’re a hardcore fan and want to experience this magical world in London, be sure to join us on our next Free Harry Potter Tour…before “you-know-who” finds out!
During the Christmas & NYE period our schedule might be slightly altered with some additional departures and other days where we are running fewer tours. Please check our live tour calendar here to double check when the tour is running.

Part of all tips goes to a local charity
This Harry Potter tour was very fun and educational for a medium fan. I saw some great places and learned a lot about JK Rowling from our tour guide Harry. He did a great job, if you want to do a HP tour, the strawberry tour is a very good choice.

If you are a Harry Potter fan you should absolutely do this tour. Alice, our tour guide, was friendly, energetic, knowledgeable, passionate and all around wonderful! We were able to visit sites and learn a lot of really cool facts about the filming of the Harry Potter series. We even got to recreate some scenes which was my favorite part! We also got to visit some places that inspired J.K. Rowling for some of the locations in the books. Alice even gave us some tips for more places to visit and the best places to get HP souvenirs. It was so much fun! I loved this tour and would highly recommend it!

Yes! As this is England, if we didn’t run the tour on rainy days it would hardly operate at all. Just make sure to have suitable clothing and consider bringing an umbrella if necessary.
Go to the meeting point and look for our guide carrying a Strawberry Umbrella.
Due to the high demand of our tours you can only join the tour if you have made a reservation.

All our tours are free. That means that at the end of the tour, you can choose to reward the guide if you wish so, according to your enjoyment and your possibilities. A part of that goes towards covering our marketing and operational costs. This system ensures great quality in the tours, extremely high client satisfaction, and last but not least, that absolutely everyone can come on our tours, regardless of their budget.
We are then able to set the start time to whatever suits you and make the experience more personal. This is also a great option for groups of 8 people or more that are unable to join our free tours together.
