What you'll do
Join me as we venture into the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter in London! Starting at Piccadilly Circus we will journey through the city and learn the history of Harry Potter in London in film, book, and even real-life form! On this walking tour of London we will watch clips from the movies while I regale you with behind-the-scenes stories of those locations as well as the history of J.K. Rowling's time in London. Our first stop will be the entrance to Diagon Alley, before we pop down to see the Ministry of Magic, and find out which Leaky Cauldron has the best tacos, as well as others I don't want to spoil here. I will also share some of the strangest, funniest non-HP facts I've learned about London along the way. We will finish at Borough Market, London's top street food destination, with King's Cross just a separate Tube ride away. PLEASE be aware the tour is offered in English only, and it is largely story-based, so a better-than-basic conversational grasp of English will be required. While witches and wizards of ALL ages are totally welcome, there is a LOT of walking on this tour, so I recommend it more for older kids (11+). Strictly one person per slot, group limit 12. No exceptions. Step-free route for wheelchairs available, message for details. Not affiliated with the WB Studio Tour.
Hi! We are Mark and Thor. Both stand-up comedians and Harry Potter nerds living in London. We've been taking guests on Harry Potter related walking tours for over five years now. Regaling people with behind-the-scenes tales of the movies, as well as walking in the footsteps of JK Rowling to try to pick her brain about the real life inspirations for her magical series. Our goal is to make sure everyone leaves with a new interesting fact, whether they're a Hogwarts first year or a prefect!
I will be bringing along a tablet loaded with specially edited film clips to help guests visualise.
