Magical London: Harry Potter Guided Walking Tour
- Duration: 2.5 hours
Explore St. Paul’s Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece and England's place of national celebration. Today St Paul’s is both a busy working Anglican Cathedral and one of London’s leading sightseeing attractions. Touchscreen multimedia guides are now included for sightseers; listen and watch, as the guide uses film, new photography, and detailed commentary to offer an effective interpretation of this unique landmark. Opt for a more personal approach with tours of the cathedral floor and crypt led by cathedral guides 4 times daily; join in at no extra cost as you spend 90 minutes walking through the cathedral and learning about its art, its history, and its religious significance. Alternatively, join one of various short introductory talks offered throughout the day for a snippet of additional insight. These guided tours and talks are available on a first come first served basis. Plea...
I booked St Paul’s for my 6 year old grandson who had studied the Great Fire of London at school and from the moment we stepped into the cathedral, we were both mesmerised. We were greeted with an audio guide which was really easy to use and everything was very covid secure. Although the Whispering Gallery was closed, we decided to climb the 500+ steps to the Golden Gallery which overlooked the entirety of London. He loved it - I loved it and both our legs were shaking from the climb! Probably not a good idea to climb if you are claustrophobic as the stairs can be extremely narrow in places - similarly if you are worried about heights…it’s certainly a way up! Loved every second - and would love to return one day to see the Whispering Gallery.
Walk in the footsteps of your favorite wizards (and witches) around Muggle London. Your Harry Potter enthusiast guide will be armed with weird and wonderful trivia all along the way. Meet your guide and start your adventure by finding out which Hogwarts’ House you belong in. Compete against other Houses in an interactive quiz as you see the sites that inspired J.K. Rowling, from Shakespeare's Globe to the London alleys that inspired Knockturn Alley.
Highlights include passing The Leaky Cauldron, the secret wizarding inn. Explore the real Diagon Alley, where Harry buys his first wand. Even see the bridge destroyed by the Death Eaters in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince". For part of your guided tour, choose either a short boat trip down the Thames or take the world-famous London Underground. Both the boat and Underground options follow this itinerary: 1...
I took my 8 year old son, who is a huge Harry Potter fan, and we both throughly enjoyed it. Some of the filming locations were as good as the inspirational sights.

Loved the Harry Potter guided tour with our guide John. There was only myself and my daughter on the tour and John went out of his way to make the tour fun and even threw in a couple of detours, he was full of info. Would definitely do another tour next time we're in London.
