You will have a true wizarding expert guiding your tour from start to finish. They will lead the way and help you to unearth some of the Harry Potter shooting locations and immerse you in the magical world we all know and love. You will stand at the Leaky Cauldron and even walk along Millennium Bridge - but make sure you watch out for the Death Eaters! When you arrive at Platform 9 ¾, don’t forget to take a photo and then try to make your way to Hogwarts.

If you're looking for more to do after the tour, don’t miss a visit to the Harry Potter Shop at Kings Cross Station. Kidadler Sammy says, "I took my son to Kings Cross and saw Platform 9 ¾ which was free. He loved it!! We got there early to avoid the crowds... then he spent at least an hour in the shop there, which is kind of like a museum as so many amazing themed goods.... not just stuff to buy but the shop looks like something out of Harry Potter. He spent all his pocket money savings on a wand but he loved trying out all the different wands there belonging to each of the characters."

If you are spending more time at home, why not have a little family fun with JK Rowling’s brand new Harry Potter At Home hub where you will find loads of magical treats to keep you entertained. To get you started, here are some of our favourite Harry Potter activities. And if that wasn’t enough, here are some extremely important lessons we learnt from Harry Potter
