This year marks 20 years since the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and what better way is there to celebrate and relive all the magic than on a super cool Harry Potter tour of London?!
So what’s it all about then? Strawberry Tours in London town is offering wizards, witches and muggles of any age the chance to explore some of the most iconic buildings, monuments and attractions from the Harry Potter world. Where? Well on the streets of London, of course. Expect strolls down Diagon Alley, wizarding duels near Gringotts, fleeing Dementors at the Ministry of Magic and to get up to no good on Knockturn Alley. And yes, dress up is totally permitted.
But that’s not all though. At every stop you will hear all about London’s awesome history and find out why these particular locations inspired author JK Rowling. And if it’s your first time visiting the city, good news – you’ll pass a load of incredible landmarks including the likes of Big Ben, Millennium Bridge, Tate Modern and Leadenhall Market!
Best part about the whole thing is that it’s entirely free – no wonder people having been going so potty over it – but you are allowed to leave a little tip if you feel like it.
