For Harry Potter fans London offers many places that were used as locations for the film franchise and also served as inspiration for J.K Rowling as she wrote the famous books. On this tour we’ll visit many of those magical film locations.
Kings Cross Station
Visit Platform 9 3/4 and see the famous station where Harry and his friends take the Hogwarts Express from London. A specially recreated scene at London’s Kings Cross Station is a must see stop for all Potter fans. Kings Cross is also a fanatic piece of Victorian architecture in its own right.
Ministry of Magic
Along Whitehall where the Uk government is based you’ll find the Ministry of Magic. We’ll explore this famous road and peek through the gates to Downing Street where it is said secret meetings are held between The Ministry of Magic and the Prime Minister himself.
Many streets claim to be the inspiration for Diagon Alley, but the most convincing has to be Goodwin’s Court. A stone’s Throw from Leicester Square where the Potter films premiered, this narrow alley definitely gives the impression you’re about to step into the magical world that Harry inhabits.
The Millennium bridge spans the River Thames at Between The City of London and Tate Modern. It’s unique steel suspension design featured in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The bridge is destroyed by death eaters in the film.
The iconic red phone boxes
If you dial 62442 (magic) in one of the phone booths in London, you’ll be connected directly to the Ministry itself. A must-do whilst on the trip!
