Know More about this tour

Find your private guide dressed in Hogwarts cloak outside Oxford visitor information centre. Please arrive 5 minutes prior to departure time. Unless you have packed broomsticks, the tour will be conducted on foot and you will see or visit inside various Oxford locations including two of the three Harry Potter film sites.

Find out on this tour about the main Harry Potter actors and the producers and J.K Rowling's decisions how to bring the much loved stories onto the screen. You will learn about how various incidents shaped the success of the stories and films but will also be introduced to other legendary literary characters and writers who are associated with Oxford, such as Lewis Carroll, J.R.R Tolkien and CS Lewis. 

This tour be default goes to New college with its entry fee worth up to 6 per person included in our ticket. On any dates where New college is closed, the tour will instead visit Christchurch (its entry fee worth up to 10 per person included in ticket). Where & when it is open, all tours also visit the Divinity School film site at the Bodleian library (its 2 entry fee is included in ticket too).

Please note that unless you book a private group tour from October to May, this tour will only visit inside Christchurch, if you request this, when booking. This is because Christchurch can have queues taking an hour to get in and queues to see around plus it closes often, it costs up to 10 per person entry, has limited opening times to the dining hall and contrary to popular belief, Harry Potter was not filmed in its dining hall. Instead, they filmed the college staircase. It is therefore not a straightforward location for guided tours to and it's recommended that if you wish to visit it, you do so during your own free time. Christchurch dining hall is usually open from 10.30am-11.30am or from 2pm to 4.15pm.

NB if we might offer you a Saturday morning tour to Christchurch, then while we can visit the HP film sites at Christchurch, we cannot usually show you the dining hall, as it is closed at this time.

Special Notice: While very rare, the film sites are private university and college venues, on very rare occasions they may suddenly close to the public without any advance notice!

Inclusions

Entry inside Divinity School film site at Bodleian library- worth 2.50 per person, as & when open

You may also choose on the day to pay additional 10 to guide to add New college entry to tour too

Exclusions

PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME:

Please arrive 5 minutes early for your tour at our meeting point. If you arrive more than 5 minutes later than the scheduled tour, then you will likely forfeit and lose your booking as it interrupts the guide and other customers, if we are trying to find you after a guide has started and left the meeting point.

INFO FOR DRIVERS AND PARKING:

If you are driving, then please allow extra 30-60 minutes over whatever time you think it will take you to get here. Oxford is NOT car friendly and it is congested roads and hard to find parking spaces....unless you park at the sign posted 'park and rides' on edge of town on any major road into the city and hop on their buses into city centre. The park and ride buses leave every 15 or every 30 minutes and take anything from 10 min to 30 min (depending on traffic) to reach city centre. So if you are going to drive, then please assume you should be aiming to park your car about one hour before your tour starts.

    This was a fantastic tour which Peter made so individual and special from the Harry Potter outfits, the quizzes and don’t forget the cakes!! He has such amazing knowledge of the subject and the city, the whole family old and young, really enjoyed it!

    Superbe visite, notre guide était vraiment agréable, plein d’anecdotes et très professionnel. Je recommande également pour la réactivité de l’équipe et le fait que dans cet univers touristique ils prennent soin de la clientèle et sont très humains. A une prochaine fois avec plaisir!

    We couldn’t have asked for a better guide(Jake) through Oxford. He kept our three kids engaged and was full of trivia for adult and child alike.

  • 30-Jun-2019

    Peter our guide was the best!! He could keep a teenager and two kids very interested for almost 7 hours. The Harry P Oxford tour was very interesting but don’t miss de Blenheim Castle, a unique experience and with a great guide like Peter it makes it even better.

  • 02-Jun-2019

    I did find that as there was just myself and two children it was hard for the tour guide to keep the interest with the the boys, the link with Harry potter only really comes real in the hall of Christchurch college which we had to return as the guide arrived there while the students were at lunch.

    Everything was great! Peter put together a fantastic itinerary . It was full but not exhausting. He was so friendly, even offered us some deserts . He also brought harry potter robe, wand and hat for us to take a picture with it. Totally recommended. 👍🏻💯

    J'ai passé plus de 2 heures géniales avec un guide pas du tout ennuyant qui a de bonnes anecdotes et des histoires à raconter sur tout. Quelques surprises vous seront réservées, vous ne regretterez pas :)

    Ce samedi 26/01 nous avons rdv à 10h30 avec Naima pour la visite d'oxford-Harry Potter. Nous avons apprécié que l'organisme VisitOxfordTours.com soit réactif à notre demande d'une visite en français. Déambuler dans les "college" d'oxford sur les traces du tournage du film est une belle expérience pour les fans. Naima ajoute des explications sur la ville et l'organisation des "college". Le réfectoire de christ church était fermé lors de notre passage mais Naima nous a donné nos tickets d'entrée pour que nous puissions revenir l'après-midi ainsi que des conseils de visite pour notre WE et un lien pour toutes les activités programmées ces 2 jours. Nous n'avons pas regretté notre choix: le suivi WhatsApp de notre commande faite sur leur site est rassurant et leur réactivité aux demandes particulières est top. Les 5 personnes de notre groupe ont été unanimes, c'était super; et une petite surprise vous attend lors de cette visite avec Naima.

    We took the Harry Potter tour with Peter this afternoon and all had a fabulous time. We took our 9 and 12 year old children who thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Peter was very good at capturing everyone’s attention and was very engaging and entertaining. I would definitely recommend this tour.

    Our Guide Naima was amazing. She shared so many interesting nuggets and had a great way about her. 5*
