Oxford: Harry Potter Tour with Divinity School Entry

1. Oxford: Harry Potter Tour with Divinity School Entry

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. 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, you will take part in a Harry Potter quiz to test your knowledge of the books and films. The guide will also describe how student life in Oxford compares with Hogwarts.

Really enjoyed the ghost walk. The guide was prompt and took us through quiet streets to the outside of university buildings. She told us some interesting ‘ghostly tales’ which she delivered in an engaging manner. We were absorbed in her retelling. It was well done.

Laura was an excellent tour guide. She took us around and explained very well and also went into the history of the place always linking it up with HP. The quiz throughout the tour was also a fun part.

She did a wonderful job telling us ghost stories on our walk about Oxford. And bonus we found some new pubs to try.

Great tour! Interesting Harry Potter stories and personal stories, very nice tour guide

Michael was so informative! Very pleasant and provided other insights about Oxford
