Should I buy this experience?

Who it's for

These tours are brilliant for TV and film fans. They all give you the insider knowledge on how and where your favourite TV shows and films were made. From the breathtaking beauty of Downton Abbey, to those iconic high rise flats where the Trotter family lived in Only Fools and Horses, there’s something for everyone.

Who it's not for

If you’re buying a tv or film tour as a present for someone, do book yourself onto the tour too, as even if you’re not a fan of the show or movie, as these tours are full of fascinating facts and are a great day out. Also please note, if you have accessibility requirements, these tours may not be suitable for you.

Film & TV locations and Studio FAQs

Will I be able to take photos during the tour?

Yes! Apart from at certain moments (and your guide will tell you in advance when photography is not allowed) you’re free to take those selfie shots of you in front of those well-known landmarks and spots that feature in your favourite television show or film.

Will we just see the buildings from the outside or can we go in?

Exterior scenes are often shot on location in actual places (which is what you’ll be seeing on your location tours), but the the interiors shots are usually specifically built sets within studios, so it’s the exterior that is of most interest to fans. In some cases (such as Highclere House which plays the role of Downton Abbey) you will be going inside, as it’s an amazing country house to visit in its own right.

Are entry tickets included?

Any tours that involve visiting an area, place, or building that normally has an entry fee is included in the cost of your studio or locations tour. It covers standard entry only, so if there are things like extra temporary exhibitions on offer that you’d like to see, these will be extra and payable locally by you.

Is there a lot of walking involved?

This depends on the tour. Please have a look at the details of each tour or visit, where all the info on how long the tour lasts and how much walking is involved is included. Tours are at a leisurely pace, so even if you are walking, there are plenty of stops and pauses.

Do you have any coach tours to these filming locations?

Yes we do. We offer a full range of coach tours to visit some of the famous film and TV locations in the UK, all setting off from London. There are usually several pick-ups around the capital and, of course, you’ll be dropped back off again at the end of your day.

Will I actually recognise the places we see?

Filming locations are often adapted and dressed to represent a different period in history or create a fictitious place for a scene, so it might not be immediately recognisable, but that’s why your expert guide is there. They even have screenshots of the key scenes so you can see exactly where filming took place.

Do you sell Harry Potter studio tour experiences?

Yes we do. We sell various entry tickets and tour packages to visit the Warner Bros studios in Hertfordshire where many of the sets that feature in the Harry Potter film franchise are. You can make your own way there, book a coach tour that includes studio tour entry and even include an afternoon tea as a tasty extra!

Are the sets at Warner Bros studio the real film sets from Harry Potter?

Yes they are. It’s a fascinating place with an incredible back lot of sets and props that have been used in the hugely successful Harry Potter films. And yes, they were filmed here in the UK! Clearly a must-do for any HP fan of any age.

Are the locations tours a full day out?

The tours to further afield locations outside London that include coach travel are all full days out. The London-based walking tours are generally shorter, meaning you can book a film or TV locations tour in London as part of a fun-filled day out in the capital and still have time for shopping, museum visiting or a nice meal out.

Can children go on these TV and film location tours?

In general yes. Please check each individual tour page for the age requirements. In general under 16s are allowed, but they will need to be accompanied by a paying adult.

Are these TV show and movie tours wheelchair accessible?

As many of these tours involve coach travel, using the underground and a fair amount of walking (often on cobbled streets on uneven terrain), they are not suitable for those requiring wheelchair access. The Warner Studios tour is mostly wheelchair accessible. Please get in touch with us for more info.

Is the Warner Studios tour a theme park?

No. This is a working studio where films and TV shows are made. The sets are the actual sets from the movies and, although there are no rides involved, they are very theatrical and interactive.

Are these official locations tours?

The Warner Studios Tours for Harry Potter aside, the walking and coach tours are not official tours, but they are hosted and guided by huge fans of the show (the Dr Who tours hosts are self-confessed Time Lord geeks!), who are often actors too.

Can pets come on the tours too?

Pets are not allowed on tours. Exceptions are made for assistance dogs, but please check directly with the tour organiser at the time of booking.

Are all the film and TV location tours guided?

Yes. Your guide will welcome you at the pre-arranged meeting point and will then accompany you throughout your tour, be it on foot, by public transport or on the specially chartered coach. On the Harry Potter tour you work your way around the studios, with guides stationed along the trail to provide any help or assistance.

Do you have any tour packages that include food?

We do have packages that include lunch or a tasty afternoon tea. When lunch isn’t included you can either bring a picnic, or as most places you visit have a cafe and or restaurant on site or nearby, you can buy food and drinks there.

Do you have to be a massive fan of the show or film to enjoy the tour?

Not at all! Many of the places you visit are fascinating and lovely in their own right, as well as being a filming location. The guides are all very entertaining, so everyone will enjoy the banter, the anecdotes and the backstage snippets.

Are there any TV or film studio or locations tours near me?

If it’s your fave TV show or film it’s worth travelling to see where the magic was made isn’t it? The sets and locations might not be right near you, but why not make a weekend of it and combine your locations tour with some sightseeing, shopping and fun? Many of the tours set off from and return to central London. Here are the sort of locations where our TV and film tours take place:
  • London
  • Bristol
  • Liverpool
  • Hertfordshire
  • Oxford & Oxfordshire
  • South Wales - Barry Island
  • South Wales - Cardiff
  • Kent
