Fantastic Beasts - Where to Find Them in London

Magical beasts are on the street of London and many Muggles don't even notice!

Now, the average Muggle may think that griffins and unicorns are mythical creatures harking back to medieval times but the wizarding world may disagree. If you have read J.K Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them book then you are already aware that such beasts are hiding in plain sight. But what fantastic beasts and where to find them in London? 

First of all you need to know what you're looking for...

The Fire Crab is adorned with a bejewelled shell. Even though it may be beautiful it can also be deadly as its favoured method of defence is its flame-throwing fundament.

Second, you need to know where to look...

That's where you need an urban guide such as Hazel from London Guided Walks. Hazel knows the streets of central London very well as she has delivered Harry Potter London walks to hundreds of fans of the magical world. On this walking tour you will learn where in London you can find a mythical swan-sized bird which has the ability not only to heal but to regenerate. You'll get to know the importance of such a creature to Muggles on an iconic Muggle building.

Along the way you''ll receive top tips such as what spell is required to protect winged a horse or hippogriff from Muggles. Not only will you hear descriptions of the magical beasts which hide in the open, you will see illustrations by designer James Franklin. "Creating these fantastic beasts came naturally to me. I used the description of the creature in the book and then added elements to it from known animals in the Muggle world."

So, grab your wand and join us on our Fantastic Beasts - Where to Find Them in London tour.

We are so lucky to live in such a vibrant world city. Sometimes though, it's hard to find events off the tourist trail and experience the real Londo...
