Went on a Harry Potter walking tour with Scottish John, I think his name was. It was great, not just for Potter fans but also for fans of history and other movies as well. You do need a tube ticket which is not clearly detailed on the website, and there is a lot of walking. However, John made this tour... More

Im not really a fan of Harry Potter, nor do I even have internet at home but the guys told me to create an account and do a review if they thought I liked the tour. I loved it because not only did they talk about all the Harry Potter related sites, areas, scenes, but they also delved into London's... More

Scottish john was great. He led the group together in and we saw many sights related to the films. Now we're going to do the studio tour soon with my son Josh who isa massive Disney and Harry Potter fanatic and he loved the tour too.

The two guides Alan and John were exceptional. However there needed to be more pics for the kids and less walking maybe. Having said that people should know what they're getting into when booking this online. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it and the guides really worked their magic, Cheers guys. Jack M

We went on the Harry Potter Tour in London today and it was excellent. The amiable tour guides, John and Alan managed to combine imparting their extensive knowledge of Harry Potter's London, information about London's interesting buildings and history of the area with great humour. The tour involved visiting places of interest around the West End, Blackfriars, the City and... More

The ghost walking tour was a lot of fun- our guide Tom was an excellent storyteller, clearly knew his stuff and also injected a high energy and great sense of humour that kept things interesting and all of us engaged. Would definitely recommend to tourists looking for the creepier side of london, or locals looking for something a little bit... More

We initially had trouble booking The Walking Beatles Tour online, ultimately after a number of emails and messages that was sorted out, however a few days prior to our trip we got a call that the tour time was changed to a different day. Of course we were unable to make the time change, and despite contacting them via their... More

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
