What to Expect
Meet your guide—who will be easy to spot dressed in a Hogwartsesque cloak—in the center of Oxford and embark upon your tour.
As you walk toward Oxford University, listen as your guide tells you about the city's pre-J.K. Rowling literary heritage and authors like C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Lewis Carroll who studied, wrote, and lived here. Your guide also provides some inside information about the filming of the movies.
Discover the magic of the New College and Divinity School, and understand why they were featured in the movies. Also, marvel at the 11 million antique volumes in Bodleian Library.
After exploring the filming locations, your tour concludes at the original departure point.

Our tourguide was Joe, he was really dedicated and explained everything very well. He had all the time at least it looked like it, that was also very nice that he wasn’t in a rush.
