Overview

Muggles welcome! Go inside Christ Church and the Bodleian Library on a magical adventure into the medieval buildings of Oxford University. With a fun Oxford student guide, complete with a quiz, the odd prop, and terrible jokes and puns! Suitable for devout Harry Potter fans, along with those publicly unwilling to admit their devotion, and those with no prior interest but looking for a fun way to explore! The tour includes other famous books such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings - along with the history of Oxford University.

Know More about this tour


Not quite Flourish and Blotts but as close as a muggle bookshop can be. Blackwells is the dream of every Ravenclaw, holding approximately holding 250,000 volumes, which translates to 3 miles of books! This is even more impressive knowing that their first store measured only 12 feet square, and held just 700 used books.Don't forget to have a look at the roof of the building from a distance. Don't worry the stone figure you'll see on top isn't someone petrified. It is a statue by Antony Gormley; one of a series of sculptures called “Another Time II”.
One of the largest libraries in England and home to archaic medieval books on spells and wizards!
Learn about how magic or occult sciences were studied at Oxford! These were not seen as completely separate from science until the end of the seventeenth century, so alchemy and astrology were researched here until then.
Despite the name, it is one of the oldest Colleges at Oxford, built-in 1379. With its medieval cloisters and beautiful spaces it is easy to see why they decided to film multiple scenes for Harry Potter here!
A truly iconic Oxford landmark! Learn about the underground passages students take and the rules librarians enforce. Not quite as intensely as Madam Pince though.
An iconic door hidden to the side would be inspirational for another famous children's writer, CS Lewis for his famous Chronicles Of Narnia. Hear how he and Tolkien would meet weekly and take inspiration from the Oxford landscape
The Bear Inn also known as The Bear is our Oxford equivalent of the Three Broomsticks, dating back to 1242. While butterbeer is not something you can order you are bound to be amazed by their tie collection and the stores behind it.
Before diving into the wonders of Christ Church itself we will tell you about another magical connection: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!
The tour will end next to Christ Church with a description of how it inspired Hall at Hogwarts (but was actually not the real Hall as it was too small!) You can book direct with them to go inside at this point, or head back to the city center with the guide
This dramatic site is not only one of the oldest parts of the University, but it was also used in various scenes when filming of Harry Potter was taking place in Oxford. Instantly recognisable as a Harry Potter site, with one of the best examples of medieval architecture in England.

    Great walking tour. Nancy was super. Lots of fun, beautiful places, and interesting facts. Highly recommended.

    A very entertaining and enjoyable tour by Nancy our witch! Ever tolerant of muggles she guided us on a magical tour of Oxford. We visited lots of sites from the HP movies including New College. The 90 minutes seemed to dissaparate in front of our eyes as Nancy kept us entertained with a House points quiz and shared lots of stories and facts about the University and movies. We had 4 children with us between 11-15 and they were entertained for the whole time. Would recommend, especially for Harry Potter fans.

    Wonderful guide - very artistic. Not boring. Atractive tour. Our children liked it very much. Many interesting facts about Harry Potter movie. And more - a little bit about Tokien, Carrol, Lewis.

    I was at this tour on 31st of July and had great experience with one of your tour guides which name I don’t remember. She was kind and clear with her instructions. She stayed in her character and entertained us.

    My guide was amazing! She really made the tour engaging and interactive, which was perfect for the young ones on our tour. She also knew her stuff about Oxford and it’s connections to Harry Potter.

    Fun tour of Oxford. Worth the experience!! Seeing Oxford as a wizard was lots of fun. The poor muggles didn’t know what was going on……
