Overview

Oxford’s dreaming spires were a key location for the Harry Potter movies. Rather than try to track down each individual set yourself, join this Harry Potter walking tour and make new friends as you bond over the on-tour quiz. Your Oxford University student guide will know which colleges are closed, which have long lines, and which are ripe for viewing.

What to Expect

As Oxford is a working university and buildings sometimes close, tours can vary from day to day. However, a typical tour begins in central Oxford with a trip to the Hogwarts Infirmary, part of the 17th-century Bodleian Library. Next, explore one or two of Oxford’s oldest colleges, discovering ancient rooms and gloomy hallways that served as Hogwarts interiors.

Learn trivia about the characters and the movies and enjoy an entertaining quiz as you stroll to other filming locations. Your tour ends at Christ Church, the most famous of the Harry Potter locations. Entrance here is at your own expense as the college is often closed or hard to access: If it’s open and the lines are reasonable, your guide will show you round.
