The story of the boy beneath the stairs who learned to harness magic and use it with his friends to save the world from Voldemort gripped readers all over the world. No wonder then that so many Potter fans flock to London to see sites across the city that were either directly contained within the books or became immortalised when used to film the resulting movie franchise. The best way to see as many as possible is on a guided Harry Potter tour.

Tours range from guided walking tours, to full-day trips that head north to Watford, just outside London, where the Warner Bros. Studio is located. There are many official and unofficial Harry Potter tours and below are five of the best in London based on itineraries, value for money, authenticity and the review scores from previous guests.
