What you'll do

Ever wondered how they made Hagrid look so tall? Could you pay off your mortgage by selling a single first edition book? Or which Leaky Cauldron had the best tacos?

Using professionally filmed footage I am going to take you on a virtual walking tour of London where we will find the locations that brought the Boy Wizard to life on screen, and tell you behind-the-scenes stories and movie magic techniques from both the film series and the books.

We'll first see the real entrance to Diagon Alley, before we pop down to see the Ministry of Magic, and find the magic barrier at King's Cross station, as well as others I don't want to spoil here. I'll also share some of the weirdest London facts I've learned along the way.

Brush up on your wizarding world knowledge as there will be an ongoing trivia quiz to see which house wins the House Cup.

The tour is designed for older fans of the series and filmmaking, but all ages are welcome. Recommended for ages 11+ due to content.

**All under-18s must have their own paid ticket and there must be at least one paying adult per booked group as per Airbnb's T&Cs.**

This tour is very chat heavy and presented by a quick-talking Scottish comedian, so a good conversational grasp of English is ESSENTIAL.

SPOILERS for the entire book/movie series.

Strictly one slot per INDIVIDUAL watching, not per SCREEN.

Hi! I'm Mark and I'm a Scottish stand-up comedian and massive Harry Potter nerd. My London walking tour is the highest rated Potter tour on Airbnb (over 2000 5* star reviews), and now I'm bringing it to your living room via the magic of the internet.

I've been taking guests on Harry Potter related walking tours for over seven years now. Regaling people with behind-the-scenes tales of the movies, as well as walking in the footsteps of JK Rowling to try to find the real life inspirations for her magical series. My goal is to make sure everyone goes away with a new interesting fact, whether they're a Hogwarts first year or a prefect, as well as a new friend in me... so long as you're happy being friends with a Slytherin.

Mark was an excellent tour guide! He made sure to involve everyone that was on the tour and make it a special experience for all of us! He obviously put a lot of work into preparing the virtual tour and that paid off - everything ran smoothly, was fun and hilarious, and showed us a great deal of interesting sites and facts. Mark had a wealth of great trivia knowledge, made sure that we were all asking questions and enjoying the tour, and made a bit of a game of it to keep everyone interested. We will be passing along his info to many of our friends! Highly recommend to all!

I had a great time on the virtual tour! Some day I hope to see these sights in person, but Mark did an amazing job of transporting us to London and into the world of Harry Potter from our couch.
