Free admission

Kings Cross was named after a monument for King George IV but the area was settled much, much earlier. St Pancras old church originated in 4BC. These days it's most famous for its train station: Kings Cross/St Pancras. From here trains go all over England, including to Hogwarts if you can find Harry Potter's Platform 9 3/4. It's also home to Eurostar, which whisks you to Paris and Brussels.

The surrounding area is slowly edging its way out of being one of the seediest parts of London. The magnificent St Pancras building is coming back to life as a posh hotel, the British Library is just down the road, and of course, the station redevelopment is full of shops and restaurants.

This magical Private Harry Potter Walking Tour Of London offers you the chance to see the filming locations from the Harry Potter film franchise, explore locations mentioned in the books, and learn more about the ‘boy who lived’ from a passionate Harry Potter fan.

There will also be plenty of opportunities to re-enact scenes from the films as well as stops for selfies, pauses for photos, and the chance to learn a little bit more about London in general.

The price you see is the total cost (not per person). ........... THE Muggles tour of Harry Potter film locations. Half Day Private London Tour (4 hours): 9am - 12pm starts. Taxi tour and a small amount of walking. Lots of photo opps. .......... I’m a born and bred London guide who enjoys providing commentary and anecdotes about all our tour stops at London’s ‘Potterology’ film sites. Harry Potter may have been raised in very dull Little Whingeing, but very exciting central London is where you'll discover lots of the real film locations used in Harry Potter films. Close enough to one another to drive, this tour taxis from location to location so that you can see, stand next to and sometimes walk in the actual places where Muggles fear to tread. Walk diagonally through Diagon Alley, stand fractionally closer to Platform 9 ¾ or deposit yourself outside Gringotts Bank. All are featured on this tour of the real film locations. Everyone welcome, except for Deatheaters!
