What makes this tour special

Inspiration for hundreds of novels, and the romantic setting for many TV shows and movies, including, of course, several of the Harry Potter films. Experience the magic of Oxford and the Harry Potter filming locations with your private guide and driver on this enchanting day trip from London. 

On your private tour you will:


Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, one of the most beautiful, eminent and historic cities in the world is your destination for the day.

You’ll be picked up in central London from a location of your choice, by your private guide – a passionate historian, Harry Potter fanatic, and qualified private guide and Black Cab driver! You’ll enjoy a scenic drive to Oxford where you’ll spend the day wandering around the enchanting colleges, streets, markets, and gardens of this magical city. 

Birthplace of Alice in Wonderland, Narnia and Middle Earth, and more recently His Dark Materials, Oxford was used as the location for some of the most memorable scenes in the Harry Potter movies – including everyone’s favourite dining room – the Grand Hall of Hogwarts! 

Not only will you step into the movie scenes at Christ Church and New College (founded in 1379 – it’s no longer that new!), your privately guided tour will take you all over the city. You’ll pass by all the must-see landmarks including the Bridge of Sighs, Carfax Tower, the Radcliffe Camera, the entrance to Narnia, the Sheldonian Theatre (which hides an elusive Potter secret!) and Tom’s Tower. 

You’ll see many of Oxford’s beautiful colleges from the outside, where some of the greatest luminaries have studied and you will also enjoy some peaceful green space as you wander along the River Isis, through Christchurch Meadow and the Botanical Garden. 

You’ll walk past the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Oxford Castle and Prison – the partly ruined Norman medieval stronghold dating back to the 11th century, the Ashmolean Museum of Art, Archaeology and Antiquities, and the Martyrs Memorial where you’ll uncover some grim Tudor History, and the Covered Market – a delicious place for street food where you’ll learn about the Town/Gown riots! 

After a day spent absorbing the magic of Oxford, you’ll then enjoy a peaceful drive back to muggle London.
