Secluded quadrangles, cobbled square and lots of fantasy and magic, come along for a guided walking tour of historic Oxford and the wonderful world of Harry Potter.
The ‘City of Dreaming Spires,’ Oxford needs no introduction. The city is home to some of our favourite literary works – Alice in Wonderland, The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia to name a few. During a fascinating walk, we will find out why authors, poets, actors and inventor made Oxford their abode. We will explore the ivy-clad colleges and the prestigious University founded in 1167 and still operating within its traditional collegiate system.
Next up, keep your wands and brooms ready as you enter the world of wizardry and witchcraft. Visit Warner Bros. Studio and see the actual sets and props used to bring Rowling’s spellbinding world of Harry Potter alive. Step into the Great Hall and you can almost imagine the clamour of robe-clad students chatting over some delectable turkey and pumpkin juice at the Great Feast. Dumbledore’s office takes you on a trip down memory lane and leaves you as wide-eyed as Harry during his first visit in the Chamber of Secrets where he meets Fawkes. Your enthralling brush with Hogwarts continues as we take you through all your favourite locations - the unforgettable Potions classroom, the absolutely cosy Hagrid’s Hut, the fantastic Gryffindor Common Room, of all things magical in Diagon Alley and much more! Learn about all the behind-the-scenes techniques used to bring the magical world to life. Whether you are six or twenty-six, we bet you will leave the Studio absolutely bewitched by the marvels of human fantasy.
