Walking around historic Oxford you almost feel Harry, Hermione and Ron right behind you in some magical parallel universe! Oxford locations (Christ Church college, the Bodleian library and New College) famously feature in many of the early Harry Potter films helping to create the iconic gothic backdrop that became the unmistakeable Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry!
A real highlight of this tour is the visit to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London. The behind-the-scenes walking tour truly immerses pupils into the world of film-making. Walk on the famous cobbles of Diagon Alley, featuring the shop fronts of Ollivander's wand shop, Flourish and Blotts, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Wizarding Bank and Eeylops Owl Emporium. Discover the authentic sets used in the making of the Harry Potter™ film series. Step inside the actual Great Hall and explore Dumbledore’s office. Enter the Gryffindor common room, the boys’ dormitory and Hagrid’s hut. This outstanding tour lasts around 4 hours.
A programme of new educational workshops is also available to complement the Studio Tour. These workshops are delivered in a purpose-built classroom and use the Harry Potter™ film series as an example of the wider context and theories surrounding film-making and design. These need to be booked well in advance.
