Indulge your inner Potterhead with this private, 3-hour black cab tour of London. With a private driver-guide, explore the muggle capital’s sights and visit real-life locations featured in the Harry Potter movies. See the building that became Gringotts Wizarding Bank, cross over the ‘Knight Bus Bridge,’ pose for photos by the Leaky Cauldron and set off in search of Grimmauld Place, Platform 9¾ and the Ministry of Magic. Then, cap your tour with a 24 hour hop-on hop-off cruise along the River thames, following the same route Harry takes when he flies over London on his broomstick.
What You'll Get
Begin your morning or afternoon tour with pickup from your hotel, and hop inside the back of a classic London black cab. With your private driver-guide at the wheel, set off in search of filming locations from the Harry Potter movies.
Pause for a photo op outside Australia House, whose grandiose interior was featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as Gringotts Wizarding Bank; stroll over Lambeth Bridge, where the Knight Bus squeezed in between two double-decker buses in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban; and visit Leadenhall Market, a beautiful, covered Victorian market, where you’ll find the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron.
Continue to the pub that was transformed into the Third Hand Book Emporium, and discover the real-life square used as Grimmauld Place (spoiler alert: there are no moving houses) before arriving at King’s Cross Station. Take the ultimate souvenir photo with a disappearing luggage trolley under the Platform 9¾ sign, and then finish your black cab tour with a visit to the Ministry of Magic.
When the time comes, say goodbye to your guide and head to the Thames River for your cruise. See Millennium Bridge, which was destroyed by Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince; glide past the Houses of Parliament and under Tower Bridge; and follow the same route Harry takes when he flies his broomstick over the river in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Choose to stay on the cruise boat for its full loop, or hop on and off at Tower Pier or Greenwich Pier to continue sightseeing independently.
