Good walking tour showcasing spots where the movies were made with tidbits of information shared by Brian. Recommended for adults & kids. A must for Harry Potter fans. Clink museum not too bad, a bit small and very dark, might be too gory for young ones. My 12 year old niece didn’t like it cos it was too dark & scary for her
