Discover key locations from the Harry Potter movies on this guided Oxford walking tour. The itinerary varies, but sights you might visit include the Bodleian Library and Christ Church college, both used for Hogwarts settings. Bond with fellow fans, take a quiz on the movies, and hear behind-the-scenes stories. Choose from multiple departure times to fit your schedule and enjoy plenty of time for questions on this small group tour.

What to Expect
The itinerary varies depending on building schedules, but a typical tour begins in central Oxford with a trip to 17th-century Bodleian Library, where scenes were shot for Hogwarts’ library and infirmary. Next, you’ll explore one or two of Oxford’s oldest colleges, discovering ancient rooms and gloomy hallways that served as Hogwarts interiors.

Learn trivia about the movies and character, 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 (it provided inspiration for Hogwarts’ dining hall). If it’s open and the lines are reasonable, your guide will show you around, although note that entrance is at your own expense.

Fun tour, but not a ton of Potter.

We loved it, but it's more like a general tour of Oxford with a bit of Potter thrown in. Definitely worth doing, we learned a lot and really enjoyed it. Freddie was a fun guide and made us feel quite welcome. Would recommend to anyone...More

Fun university tour, not enough Potter

The tour was as much a university tour as a Harry Potter. Sure, we went to some sites where they filmed scenes from the movie. It was great that our guide had an iPad with images and scenes from the movies. A great reference. But...More
