Harry Potter: Whitehall to the West End

Immerse yourself in the wizarding world of Harry Potter through film locations and film set inspirations in Westminster and the West End.

Discover the secrets of Westminster Bridge, which members of the Order of the Phoenix flew under, and take in the stunning views of the Houses of Parliament. See Lambeth Bridge, the site of the eventful Knight Bus scene and the aged Ernest Prang's sporadic driving. How do you shrink a human head?

Westminster Station was used by Harry Potter and Mr Weasley in The Order of the Phoenix. Find out how much it costs to film on location.

Have your  Ministry of Magic visitor pass at the ready we visit both the staff and public entrances to the Ministry of Magic in Whitehall. 

We pass the possible inspiration for Gringotts Bank before venturing through the atmospheric thoroughfares of Diagon Alley, the Leaky Cauldron and Knockturn Alley.

Will you recognise the entrance to Diagon Alley just off Charing Cross Road? We venture up to Shaftesbury Avenue where Hermione apparated herself, Ron and Harry. We end at the Palace Theatre, hosting the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two.

5 star review:

"I attended this walk with my friend, and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Hazel truly is a huge Potterhead and she knows a lot - which makes it wonderful to listen to her. We could have kept walking and discovering even more things! thank you ever so much!" C Orlando, Peterborough

Harry Potter:  Southwark to the City

After visiting the film location for the Leaky Cauldron (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and the Third Hand Book Emporium, we admire a floating museum displaying the Gryffindor colours. See if you think this might be the inspiration for the Durmstrang ship in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

We see an infamous Muggle prison where prisoners were tortured and forgotten and compare that to the origins of Azkaban prison, once a place where Muggles were lured and tortured.

Take in the iconic views of London as we cross Brockdale Bridge  (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) and hear the spine-chilling eyewitness account of the Death Eater attack of June 1996.

In a city surrounded by dragons, we discuss the importance of the several security breaches at Gringotts Bank and learn about the wizarding world's currency. How many galleons would a wand  cost?  

Wind through the old streets of the City of London, will we find Diagon Alley?  We venture to the original Leaky Cauldron where Harry Potter ventures for the first  in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Fantastic Beasts - Where to Find them in London

This fantastically fascinating guidedwalk takes in the historic centre of the City of London from the splendour of St Paul's Cathedral to the domineering Tower of London. Explore how these fantastic beasts are entwined in our Muggle world.

Can you tell the difference between Britain's native Hebridean and Common Welsh Green Dragon? More importantly where in London can you find one?

Griffins are fierce and employed by wizards to guard treasure. The two we encounter have become a status symbol for an aristocratic family. But why?

Where in London can you find a magnificent mythical, swan-sized bird with its wings outstretched. Why is he needed here?

Unicorns have no reason to hide in the city streets and prance proudly in the face of hungry lions.

What spell is required to protect winged horses or hippogriffs from Muggles? Could you handle a fire crab as a pet?
