Oxford, an hour from London and with so many stunning buildings, is the perfect backdrop for many movies. There can be no doubt that the most famous of these featured a boy wizard by the name of Harry, but there are plenty more to be discovered. Come with us as we lead you on a magical journey through Hogwarts, or at least parts of it!You will hear about the inspiration, the writers and the actors associated with the books and movies.You will visit two locations used in the filming of Harry Potter as well as see many street scenes from other movies. At the end of the tour, you will remain at Christ Church, a third filming location for Harry Potter and you have the option to visit independently and at you own cost.
Meet your guide outside Balliol college on Broad Street (directly opposite the Tourist Information centre) for a 2pm start. Your guide will begin with some background history on Oxford and Harry Potter before leading you along cobbled streets and narrow alleyways to reach New College and then onto The Divinity School. This tour will then head over to Christ Church which you will view from the outside. The dining hall at Christ Church was the inspiration for the dining hall at Hogwarts. You do not visit inside this college as there are often long lines for groups but you will have the option to visit independently (subject to any closures) and pay direct. Entrance fees range from £5.50-£9 per person. However, you guide will tell you all about the inspiration and some locations within Christ Church.Please note that this tour only operates on certain days due to location closures, you plan and coordinate in advance but sometimes there can be last minute closures which are beyond our control.
