What you'll do

The ultimate Harry Potter tour of London

Want to see London's biggest Harry Potter sights in under two hours, learn little-known HP facts, AND test your HP knowledge at the same time? Then this tour is for you.

As with all first years, we'll start the tour by sorting you into houses with a quick quiz at the iconic Millennium Bridge. We'll then visit London's best and most-famous markets to prepare ourselves for a mind-blowing session of magic and wizardry. They may not sell Skiving Snackboxes or Fizzing Whizbees, but these markets make food to rival that of Hogwart's House-elves.

Next, we'll lead you through London's famous and lesser-known streets to see a host of magical sights from the books and films, including the Ministry of Magic, Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. We promise you, the facts we reveal about Harry Potter will leave you desperate to put your memories into a Pensieve.

Finally, we'll visit the site of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and explore the MinaLima gallery and shop, which contains REAL props from the HP films. And best of all? There will be quiz rounds all throughout the tour for hardcore HP fans. Could you win the Goblet of Fire?

Hiya! I'm Beth and I work for Child.org, an international development charity working with mums and children to lift their communities out of poverty. We run these awesome Harry Potter tours to fund our projects in Kenya and Sierra Leone, so we are really excited that you want to apparate (we wish) to London's coolest Harry Potter sights with us.

I absolutely love meeting new people from around the world and chatting about all things Harry Potter, so if you're looking for a bubbly guide to give you a personal experience then I'm your muggle! I always look forward for going for a drink after the tour with my fellow Potterheads, even if it's to discuss other great places you can visit in London to get the 'Londoner's experience'.

Please let me know if there is a specific date you want to come and I'll do my best to accommodate you :)

About the organisation: Child.org



Child.org LOVE creating awesome experiences with Potter fans, because our values are so closely aligned. “It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!” - Albus Dumbledore Child.org believe that every child, wherever they are born, should have the opportunity to live life to the fullest. Our work breaks down the barriers faced by children born into extreme poverty.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Child.org.

Where you'll be

We will visit a series of truly magical places from the Palace Theatre to Millennium Bridge, including (to name some major London landmarks and local haunts): Downing Street, Borough Market, Trafalgar Square, and Westminster. AND you'll get the chance to visit the Mina Lima shop, (which is like the Harry Potter shop at Charing Cross but for hardcore Potter fans) to see incredible graphic props from the franchise by their official design studio.

During a week long trip to London this was one of the things our kids (age 13,11) were looking forward to most and Benny did not disappoint. He had great Harry Potter knowledge and the kids were impressed. He took us to various places used during filming and chatted without tiring for the entire 2 hours. Even a few days later, the kids are still talking about it.

The fill-in host - not Amy - did not seem at all prepared. She was late and had to read the script from her phone very frequently and went for long periods of time without saying anything. We were promised to have a sorting and receive scarves, but the host seemed to have no idea this was supposed to happen. No sorting was done - no scarves. My kids enjoyed the experience overall, but I found it quite disappointing.

This tour was so much fun! Great way to spend a couple hours. Platform 9 3/4 isn’t included but was given directions on how to get there from the end of the tour, super simple. I had a blast!

Amy is uniquely qualified to host this experience, with a thorough understanding and respect for the makings of the Harry Potter series. Her energy and enthusiasm was contagious. As a host she was warm, funny and animated. Visited many places we would have never known about. Great experience for a good cause!

Amy was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and even gave more info about buildings that weren't related to Harry Potter. She was very prepared with pictures and details about the movies and the books. The scarf was a really nice touch. Highly recommend it.

Ήταν μια υπέροχη εμπειρία για όποιον λατρευει τον Harry Potter και τις ταινίες του. Εκτός από τις βόλτες στα σημεία που γυρίστηκαν σκηνές από τις ταινίες, λατρέψαμε τις επισκέψεις στα μαγαζάκια, ειδικά αυτό της Minalima. Δεν υπήρχε περίπτωση να το δούμε μόνοι μας. Σ' ευχαριστουμε Amy!l
