Celebrate 20 years of Harry Potter While in London
Muggles and wizards alike should take the time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter soaring onto bookshelves and into our hearts. With a book series, film series, and characters known the world-over, it should come as no surprise that hardcore fans visit London on a quest for all things Potter-related.
Luckily for these muggles with wizard hearts, visiting the places that inspired J.K Rowling’s World of Wizardry has never been easier. For instance, the family-friendly Harry Potter tour takes guests through the London streets to learn more fascinating information about the books and films.
It is common knowledge amongst Harry Potter fans that J.K. Rowling found inspiration for the many settings of the books in London. When you take a free walking tour, you will see the streets that helped her envision Diagon Alley and Knockturn Alley. Look closely and you may notice the similarities between the descriptions of the Leaky Cauldron and a London pub.
Film fans will also be excited to see the various filming locations around London, as well as the site of film premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part Two, which was Britain’s largest premiere ever.
The way you view the London streets will never be the same after you have seen them through Harry’s eyes.
Treasure and Treats
A trip to Harry Potter’s London also means you will have the unique opportunity to purchase treasures and treats that only true fans will appreciate. Tour guests will learn which shops sell treats the book characters enjoyed, as well as where to purchase the finest book and film memorabilia.
Experience magic, fun, and adventure as you walk through the streets that inspired the brilliant J. K. Rowling. You may even take a little magic home with you.
