Assemble at the designed meeting point along with your tour members (not more than 35). Get divided into four teams (the 4 magical houses of Hogwarts) by your expert tour guide. After this, set out to explore the city’s filming locations while enjoying trivia quizzes on Harry Potter and gathering points for your house. Video clips of movie scenes, costume pieces, and reenactments make this an enjoyable, interactive experience, allowing you to live out your Harry Potter dreams when in London.

Walk past the entrance to Diagon Alley, the Leaky Cauldron, and the bridge that was destroyed in the Half-Blood Prince.
