4. Hagrid: "If yeh know where to go" – or to put that another way, it all comes down to the guiding.
"If yeh know where to go" Where to go on this wicked walking tour that burns with a hard gem-like flame. Burn with an h. g.-like flame because it's HP. And because it's the mysterious old City of London. And because betwixt and between the film locations we hit the sweet spots – the very best of quirky, peculiar, curious, lost old London. It's all very Harry Potter and Co. Runs every Sunday at 2 pm. Meet Richard outside exit 3 of Bank Tube (by the war memorial in front of the Royal Exchange). N.B. there's a £3 charge for kids as this one's for all ages. It's the normal £10 for adults or £8 for concs.
N.B. In the Summer 2017 London Walks programme – which kicks in on May 1 and runs through October 31 – the Harry Potter Film Locations in the City walk will take place twice a week: every Sunday at 2 pm and every Wednesday at 2.30 pm. In late Spring there will be Harry Potter Film Locations in the City walks at 2 pm on Wednesday, April 5 and at 2 pm on Wednesday, April 12 (as well as the regular Sunday afternoon – every Sunday afternoon – 2 pm Harry Potter walk).
Ah, film locations! Where the ephemeral image on the screen turns into reality! Underfoot and right before our very eyes. And what's right before our very eyes on this one is the Westminster locations that riveted you in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, The Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It's a walk – a quest even – for fans of all ages. And there's a bonus. Well, lots of bonuses. Because the weave also includes lots of great sights – and sites – and the sights behind the sites – for those who are just along for the ride, along to keep a fan company. All led by the Prince of Potter guides – he of the spookily perfect name – actor Richard Walker. N.B. there's a £3 charge for kids as this one's for all ages. It's the normal £10 for adults or £8 for concs. The walk ends in the Potter-perfect little alleyway that's just round the corner from Leicester Square Tube Stop.

If you can't make one or more of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Harry Potter Tours why not think about booking one as a private walk? If you go private you can have a Harry Potter tour – or any other London Walk– on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. And – always with private walks – we go to great lengths to make sure the guide-walker(s) "fit" is well nigh perfect. Ring Fiona or Noel on 020 7624 3978 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. Makes a great birthday party outing. Or if you're looking for a very special birthday or Christmas present for a friend or family member – well, why not consider the gift of a private tour with a world class guide. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
It all comes down to the guiding. If you're not assessing you're guessing – buying a pig in a poke.
