What you'll do

Join me as we venture into the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter in London! We will journey through the city and learn the history of JK Rowling and Harry Potter in London.

On this walking tour of London's streets we will watch clips from the movies while I regale you with behind-the-scenes stories of those locations as well as the history of JK Rowling's time in London. Our first stop will be the entrance to Diagon Alley, before we pop down to see the Ministry of Magic, and find out which Leaky Cauldron has the best tacos, as well as others I don't want to spoil here.

I will also share some of the strangest, funniest non-HP facts I've learned about London along the way.

We will finish at Borough Market, London's top street food destination, with King's Cross just a separate Tube ride away.

PLEASE be aware the tour is offered in English only, and it is largely story-based, so a better-than-basic conversational grasp of English is essential.

While witches and wizards of all ages are welcome, due to the amount of walking and the content, I more recommend it for ages 11+.

Strictly one person per slot, group limit 12. No exceptions.

Step-free route for wheelchairs available, message for details.

This London street walking tour is not affiliated with the WB Studio Tour at Watford.
Other things to note
Every person (over 11yo) will need an Oyster card or contactless payment method with at least £2.40.

The tour contains about 90 minutes of brisk walking so make sure little legs are up for that!

Hi! We are Mark and Thor. Both stand-up comedians and Harry Potter nerds living in London. We've been taking guests on Harry Potter related walking tours for over five years now. Regaling people with behind-the-scenes tales of the movies, as well as walking in the footsteps of JK Rowling to try to pick her brain about the real life inspirations for her magical series. Our goal is to make sure everyone leaves with a new interesting fact, whether they're a Hogwarts first year or a prefect!

    We had a wonderful time wondering around with Ryan. We had issues getting to the meeting spot and Ryan kept in contact to make sure we were able to join the group. Thank you

    Ryan is a very friendly tour guide with an exceptional appreciation of the finer things in life, Harry Potter certainly included. Not only does he lead you past the main Harry Potter highlights, but he is genuinely interested in showing you the special places that London has to offer! All that while answering general questions about the city, like where to find the best pubs. Please don’t hesitate any longer! There really is no better way to begin your days in London.

    Every Harry Potter fan needs to take this tour! It was a great mixture of history, Harry Potter, and sight-seeing which is great if you’re visiting London. The tour guide was so personable and we loved that he showed a clip of the scene at Each stop to refresh our memory. Worth every galleon. Definitely would recommend!
