Harry Potter Walking Tour of Oxford

Lights, camera, action!!! Grab your wand and enjoy a fantastical walking tour around Oxford – home to the oldest University in the English speaking world. Suitable for both muggles and wizarding folk alike, this 1 hour 45 minute guided walking tour of Oxford will take you to some of the film locations used in the Harry Potter movies as well as other blockbuster films shot in Oxford.

As part of this walking tour of Oxford, you will be spellbound as you learn about life at one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world, and find out why Oxford’s Colleges make the perfect setting for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and other on screen locations.

During your tour, your student guide will enthrall you as you journey around the old city of Oxford, reminding you of some of the most memorable scenes from numerous films including the Harry Potter series, The Mummy, Transformers 5, X-men, The Golden Compass and many others.

You will learn about what happened when the stars and film makers came to Oxford, you’ll delve into the fascinating history of the colleges and you’ll discover how the magical wonders of Oxford are echoed in movies such as the the Harry Potter series.

Depending on college accessibility entrance into 2 of the 3 film sites is part of the tour for which entry fees would need to be paid directly on the day (approx £7 per person). These are New College and the Divinity School at The Bodleian Library. Due to the queues getting into Christ Church College we don’t include this in the price and suggest you visit after with with the aid of the DIY self guided information sheet we provide you allowing you to find the locations inside the college that were used in filming. Max group sizes are limited to 19 persons.

NOTE: Depending on time of day and University events (which can be announced at short notice), certain Oxford colleges may not always be accessible on the day of your tour.  However, in the instance of any unforeseen or unscheduled events preventing access to venues, your guide will ensure that your party enjoys the best possible tour experience.
