Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond – Part Five

I’m talking, of course, about the record-breaking, award-winning theatre event that is The Cursed Child, running since 2017 at the Apollo Theatre. I tried to get...

Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond – Part Four

Day Four: Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour If I could bottle the excitement engendered by our imminent visit to the Harry Potter Studio Tour on our fourth day in the UK, I could power a small city for a week. I don’t think Uchenna slept a wink the night before, but that didn’t seem...

Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond – Part Three

Day Three: Primark As stated above, London (and the rest of England), is awash with Harry Potter Merchandise. Every tee-shirt seller, umbrella-maker and purveyor of novelty coffee mugs in the city has jumped on the Hogwarts Express, and there are a thousand different HP-related ways to part tourists from their money in the Capitol.

Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond – Part Two

Day Two: School of Wandcraft AirBNB Experiences is an amazing platform, and I’ve used it before to have a more authentic experience in the cities I’ve visited since it was launched. I was sure that the London list would be extensive, and I was right. HP-themed tours and activities abound, but one stood out from...

Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond – Part One

Day One: Kings Cross Before we left, I decided on a balance between organised walking tours (official and non-official), and self-guided rambles around well-known HP sites. The first of these was Kings Cross itself. And, if you’re a witch of wizard looking for magic, this is exactly where you need to start! Gazing up at...

Okay, New York. What’s Happening?

Raw, honest travel blog. I spent one week in New York, in September 2017. September is a very humid time to go to New York. The air was sticky and heavy. My hair went wild from the humidity, ruining any possible good photo opportunities. In Times Square I could feel the weight of smog in...

Dear Future Aupairs.

Raw, honest travel blog. Not everything went to plan, but Travel Savvy certainly made one.
