We started at the leicester square and ended at the king cross platform 9 3/4. Managed to take photos of the famous trolley next to the merchandise shop. The q was a bit long but u have to be patient a bit. The tour was so interactive with the guide explained on how the author began with this. Visited locations where some of the scenes were inspired from. Alexandra our guide (sorry if i get her name wrongly) was fantastic. She used the ipad to show some of the clips from the scenes so everybody can recall.

I am a huge Harry Potter fan and this was such a neat tour! I was so excited to see all the places where they filmed or got inspiration for the movie! I went home right after and looked for the places we went to on the movies! Also there is a lot of good background they give you about J.K and the actors/actresses as well that I had not known previously.
