My daughters had a lovely time exploring Edinburgh city along with gaining knowledge about the Harry Potter tour . The guide Kieran was very interactive and made the trip worth looking forward to. Thank you.
Follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and other characters from the Harry Potter movies. J.K. Rowling applied to study at Oxford University and so she was familiar with Oxford. Thus, when they were producing the films, Rowling walked the producers around Oxford, pointing out various sights which they could use, such as the statue that looks like 'Nearly Headless Nick', and Turf Tavern Lane, which looks like Knockturn Alley.
This tour showcases where the Harry Potter movies were filmed in Oxford. It includes entry to 1 film site only via the Divinity School, where they filmed the classroom, dance, and infirmary scenes.
You will be passing the city's famous sights and colleges from the outside. You will also be provided with lots of insights about the actors, the producers and about JK Rowling's inspirations. As you walk around, ...

My kids (11 and 14) are big Harry Potter fans. This was a great tour and it was fascinating to see how they made the movie. My husband and I are not huge fans but we still enjoyed the tour. We visited in July and it was quite warm on the bus for the first 45 min. They show a Harry Potter movie on the bus which entertains the kids (and adults). The facility is huge and there is a lot to see. If you enjoy Harry Potter and are interested in the behind the scenes of movie making, this tour is for you. It is highly recommended.
