Harry Potter Walking Tour

During my week long vacation in London, the first thing that we did was to do that Harry Potter Walking tour that I had missed three years ago.
We took Muggle Tours walking tour and our guide was Mr. Lockhart (I swear that it is his true name) who was amazing and hilarious. I was hoping that my friend who is currently in his 6th book might be spared from any spoilers. I did spoil Dumbledore’s death for him long ago. But thankfully it was OK. We went through some of the spots where the movie was shot and the guide told us so many tidbits and inside information not just about Harry Potter but also about London and the places we were going. It also included a Tube journey from London Bridge to West Minister and the whole tour was about 2.5 hours. It was so much fun. We had some quizzes on the way. If you are a HP fan, you should take at least one of these just for fun of going out and about where the movie was shot.

Can you see the Knights bus dashing down? Nope… You are a muggle then.

Cecil Court Street – Apparently the place that inspired JKR for Diagon Alley. The Watkins Books is a very old book shop.

      Thank you so much, Leslie 🙂 I forgot to take photographs in a couple of places. Was so engrossed with the stories that it didn’t cross my mind.

      👍. That one is still in the pipeline. Couldn’t do it without spoilers for my friend. So it’s on for the next time 🙂
