Get a taste of the magic with a Harry Potter Tour in London! Everyone's favourite wizard boy will come to life whilst you tour round some very familiar sights in and around central London on this special Harry Potter bus tour that fans of all ages who loved the films and books will adore.
The tour starts at the Temple underground station, where it's all aboard a luxury mini-coach to meet your expert Harry Potter guide for the tour around London. You might think these are outings are just for children, but in fact there is always a good mix with Harry Potter fans of all ages hankering to discover the filming spots. Indeed, you'll be seeing areas of the capital that you never would have found yourself, which is what makes this excursion (along with the highly entertaining guides) so good.
Once en route, you'll hear all about J K Rowling's fantastical world and how some of the very best scenes were recreated, with lots of trivia and insider gossip on Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. As the tour moves around London, you'll be shown clips from the films on the bus's in-car entertainment system before you arrive at each stop and then afterwards as well, so you can do that 'Ah…that's where it was filmed' thing and see how the trickery of movie-land transforms a normal office block into a suitably mystical set location.

Of course, it's invisible to Muggle eyes, but it's reached by walking through the barrier between platforms 9 and 10. You'll also see where the triple decker Knight Bus miraculously squeezes through two oncoming double deckers and visit the south London location used for Leaky Cauldron, as well as 12 Grimmauld Place and Gringotts Bank.
