This was super fun for Harry Potter nerds such as myself! You get to see many of the inspirations for studio-built locations in the movies, such as Diagon Alley and Knockturn Alley, and actual filming locations which our guide Sarah showed to us in movie clips along the way. You start out in King's Cross station at Platform 9 3/4 - arrive at least an hour early if you want a photo though, as there was a considerable queue. We took the tube twice, to Leicester Square and to London Bridge, so I got to see some London neighborhoods I hadn't been to before. A very fun afternoon!

We had Sarah as our guide and she was fantastic! Really engaging, very knowledgeable and also lots of fun facts thrown in. We had a real diverse mix in our group and everyone was engaged and interested the whole time. My daughter loved it. It’s tough going on the feet if you’re not used to walking for hours but you get to see so much and learn about the film locations it’s a small price to pay. Would definitely recommend. A fab way to see London. All the main sights and also learn about some of the behind the scenes magic of Harry Potter.

Not the biggest HP fan, but nice to walk around the city and have the locations pointed out to you. The guide shows a movie scene and then explains the location context. The tour takes 3+ hrs incl a 20min break to get a quick snack and/or buy some HP souvenirs.
