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!
' 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.”
