Panoramic Harry Potter Tour - Hotel To Hotel
Harry Potter fans, this is right up your (Diagon) Alley!!
On this tour you’ll enter the London that muggles never see. Harry Potter’s London is revealed in full color, allowing you to visit hidden and well-known sites that were brought to magical life in the beloved books and films.
Your guide is an expert in all things Harry Potter and will reveal the intriguing London locations that are integral to all HP movies.
We begin our magical journey at King’s Cross Station. You'll recognize it as the home of Platform 9¾, the hidden-in-plain-sight entrance to the Hogwarts Express. You’ll discover that the platform is actually an arched wall between Platforms 4 and 5. And near Platforms 9 and 10, you’ll find half of a luggage cart hanging out of a brick wall, suspended between worlds. At the St. Pancras Station, you’ll see the neo-gothic facade where the Weasleys’ magical Ford Anglia goes airborne in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
In the Leadenhall Market you’ll find traces of Diagon Alley, the magical, submerged commercial district. The Leaky Cauldron, the wizarding world’s favorite pub, is actually an optician’s shop in Leadenhall’s Bull’s Head Passage.
This tour also imparts a new magic into well-visited sites. You’ll stroll the famous Piccadilly Circus to see where Harry, Hermione, and Ron rushed through London’s West End in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. At the Millennium Bridge, you’ll walk across the landmark that was filmed collapsing in the dramatic opening sequence of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The pedestrian-only steel suspension bridge crosses the River Thames, offering dramatic views of St. Paul’s Cathedral. And at the Lambeth Bridge you’ll see where the Knight Bus squeezes between two oncoming double-decker buses in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
We'll make a short stop at the British Museum to admire the beautifully hand-carved chess pieces that make a cameo appearance in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. This magnificent set, dating from the 12th century is elaborately worked walrus ivory and whales' teeth.
