Make your way to the Westminster Tube Station, where this tour begins at 9am, and meet a guide and small group for the walk to the first location of the day, the "Ministry of Magic." In Harry Potter’s world, the Ministry of Magic is deep underground, and wizards access it by riding a magical red telephone booth—just like the ones that are all over modern-day London.
You’ll spot the entrance to the "Leaky Cauldron" pub at the entrance to "Diagon Alley": before the “Statute of Secrecy” that banned non-wizards, both muggles and wizards could gather in the pub for pickled eel and bowls of soup. Continue down "Diagon Alley", then stand in the spot where Death Eaters destroyed the Millennium Bridge.
Throughout the tour, your guide will share the magic behind the film locations, and how the real world London cityscape helped inspired the books. This 2.5-hour Harry Potter walking tour concludes at "Platform 9 ¾" — last stop before Hogwarts.
