London: Harry Potter Walking Tour

2. London: Harry Potter Walking Tour

Start at the Monument to the Great Fire of London, discover how a baby dragon destroyed 80% of London, how magic was used to put out the fire, and how an innocent muggle was accused of starting the fire.

Next, cross London Bridge and take in the sights, such as the Shard, The Tower of London, and HMS Belfast. Whilst on the bridge, hear how a daring driver crossed Tower Bridge in a double-decker bus as it was opening, with the bus full of passengers.

Once across the bridge, learn why it sways, and why death eaters attacked the bridge in the opening moments of The Half-Blood Prince. Carry on to St Paul's Cathedral and listen to how this site of religious worship goes back to the Romans, how the medieval church was once used as a stable, and how it survived the bombings of the London Blitz.

Roman London Walking Tour

3. Roman London Walking Tour

Much of Roman London is now 23 feet or 7 metres underground but if you know where to look then you can still see Roman structures today and what makes it especially incredible is that they just about survived 2000 years of construction, great fires, bombs and wars. This walking tour takes you away from the mainstream tourist sights of the West End into the original Londinium or the City of London as it is today. You will visit the sites of the old Roman Baths in London and see some of the most impressive sections of the old Roman city wall which used to span the entire city along with the ruins of an old Roman fort. The tour also takes you underground into a crypt with the flooring of a Roman house and a ‘re-laid’ Roman pavement or sidewalk. Where possible you will visit the famed Temple of Mithras, the Persian god of heavenly light which was discovered in the 20th century before being moved to a new location.  It has now been painstakingly put back in place and restored but underneath a 21st century office tower. You will visit the site of the largest Roman building north of the Alps, the famous London Stone and the remains of the London amphitheater where 7000 people used to watch the events unfold in the arena. They might not be the most complete Roman buildings in the world but they provide a fascinating insight on the very earliest history of modern London and get to see places that even most locals never get to explore.

What people are saying about Leadenhall Market

The tour was just great! Sonja not only knew a lot about Harry Potter, but also took us to places that we would otherwise never have discovered. In between, she also liked to tell us something about London itself, so there's something for everyone who is dragged along by a Harry Potter fan.

Very good but expensive!

We saw a lot of places that we probably wouldn't have found on our own. So it was very interesting. With the crowd in London, I was also happy not to be with a larger group. However, I find the price-performance ratio very high.

Very interesting and a lot of things I never expected to see! Stephen was a Great Guide and we had a really good Time.

Excellent guide, in depth knowledge and great personality!
