Itinerary
Meet your guide—dressed in a Hogwarts-esque cloak, they'll be easy to find—in the center of Oxford and embark upon your tour.

As you walk toward Oxford University, listen as your guide tells you about the city's pre-J.K. Rowling literary heritage and the authors, including C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, and Lewis Carroll, who studied, wrote, and lived here. Your guide also provides some inside information about the filming of the movies.

Discover the magic of the New College and Divinity School, and understand why they were featured in the movies. Also, marvel at the 11 million antique volumes in Bodleian Library.

After exploring the filming locations, your tour concludes at the original departure point.

Great opportunity to see some key parts of Oxford

Our guide, Lorenzo, was really great. Very personable. He offered interesting tidbits about Oxford and Harry Potter-related facts. It was a little odd the way we had to bring along two Oxford students to help our tour group get into Christchurch. It was unexpected that...More
