We are delighted to be able to show Hagrid’s bike during the run of our Reel Stories exhibition, which, among other things, examines Liverpool’s remarkable ability to be a backdrop for filmmakers.

We are very grateful to Warner Bros. for loaning us the vehicle, which we hope will be a hit with ‘Harry Potter’ fans and film buffs, as well as our regular visitors.

   Following in the footsteps of Harry Potter with Strawberry Tours0 Comments

At 3.30pm every day in Leicester Square, something wonderful happens. Potterheads, families, tourists, and a whole mix of people gather to be led on a free tour of London like they've never seen it before. They're going to be shown Harry Potter's London, from the Ministry of Magic to The Leaky Cauldron, revealed as if by magic!

Strawberry Tours' Harry Potter walking tour is a great way to see some of the most iconic buildings, streets and neighborhoods which inspired JK Rowling, and appeared in the Harry Potter films. The tour guides are as educated about the Harry Potter world as any muggle can be – and luckily they’re at hand to show some of the most well-known Harry Potter attractions located in and around central London. This includes a stroll down Diagon Alley, and even some shops selling one-of-a-kind Potter-related merchandise that you can't find anywhere else in the Harry Potter world.

Of the company running as a “free tour” operator, City Manager Charles Purdue-Pulido said,

“We believe that everyone, no matter their budget, should be able to experience and enjoy what London has to offer. We also believe that the price of the tour should correlate with your budget and how much you enjoyed it. Therefore, our tours run on a “Pay-What-It’s-Worth” basis so that everyone can choose to donate whatever they thought it was worth.”

About Strawberry Tours: Strawberry Tours, recently re-branded from Free Tours of London, is one of the very first tourism companies to offer a pay-what-you-want walking tour in London. Their tours have 4.9 or 5-star ratings on TripAdvisor, which has also granted them a Certificate of Excellence. Their Harry Potter tour runs every day in English and Spanish and it's a must for Harry Potter fans, families, budget travellers or anyone looking for a unique London experience.

   Potter fans risk death taking photos0 Comments

The British Transport Police is reporting that Harry Potter fans are risking injury and even death to take photos near significant Harry Potter landmarks.

  Accio Quote:
Sgt Kevin Lawrence, based at Inverness station, said: “Tourists from all over the world travel on the Jacobite steam train during the summer months to visit the famous Glenfinnan viaduct.

“Alarmingly, visitors often get off the train at Glenfinnan and walk back along the line to take photographs. This is extremely dangerous.

“The scenic, rural area also attracts many bikers and other tourists also travelling by road to see the viaduct.

Please stay safe!
