What to Expect
The itinerary varies depending on building schedules, but a typical tour begins in central Oxford with a trip to 17th-century Bodleian Library, where scenes were shot for Hogwarts’ library and infirmary. Next, explore one or two of Oxford’s oldest colleges, discovering ancient rooms and gloomy hallways that served as Hogwarts interiors. Learn trivia about the movies and character, and enjoy an entertaining quiz as you stroll to other filming locations. Your tour ends at Christ Church, the most famous of the Harry Potter locations (it provided inspiration for Hogwarts’ dining hall). If it’s open and the lines are reasonable, your guide can show you around, although note that entrance is at your own expense.
