Harry Potter, created by the brilliant British author J K Rowling, is a worldwide cult fiction figure. If you've ever read one of the compelling books - as a child or an adult - we'd heartily recommend discovering for yourself the London that inspired some of the books' most important moments.
A Harry Potter Walking Tour, led by an expert guide, takes you to some of the hidden parts of London that inspired J K Rowling's fertile imagination as well as to some of the locations used in the blockbuster Harry Potter series of films. Tucked away in the heart of London's bustling West End, for example, is the evocative inspiration for Diagon Alley, a street filled with bookshops piled high with treasures. You'll also walk across the Millennium Bridge, in real life designed by the renowned architect Norman Foster, in fiction destroyed by Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters.
The books will come alive around you on this fascinating London stroll - and you'll find things that you might have believed were simply made up. Prime among them is the most famous Harry Potter landmark of them: Platform 9¾ at King’s Cross Station, where a trolley disappears into a wall. This walk, like the books, is magical.
