Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond – Part Five

Day Five: The Unexpected But Quite Incredible Treat Other than the WB Studio Tour, there’s another Must-Do Potter-related activity in London at the moment, IF you can get tickets. 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.

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...

Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond 2019

Like any committed Potterhead, I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I read The Philosopher’s Stone. I was sick. Really sick. Stay-home-from-work-and-try-not-to-die sick. I was 21-ish, living in London and sleeping on a friend’s couch. He tucked me in that morning, admonished me to stay put and get better, made...
