What you'll do

**As featured on Buzzfeed!**

Join me as we venture into the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter in London from the comfort of your sofa.

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 over the last nearly three decades.

With the help of clips from the films, I will regale you with behind-the-scenes stories from both the books and the movie series. We'll head first for the entrance to Diagon Alley, before we pop down to see the Ministry of Magic, and find out which Leaky Cauldron has the best tacos, as well as others I don't want to spoil here.

I will also share some of the strangest, funniest non-HP facts I've learned about London along the way.

Bring your Harry Potter knowledge as there will be an ongoing quiz to see which house earns the House Cup (big up for Slytherin).

It'll be just like being here, except you won't have to remember to look the other way when crossing the street.

Please be aware that this tour is fairly chat-heavy, so a conversational grasp of English is ESSENTIAL for maximum enjoyment.

Prices are per-person regardless of the number of screens and all under-18s MUST be accompanied by an over-18 per Airbnb T&Cs (doesn't have to be same room/house, just on the same Zoom call).

Wands at the ready!

Hi! I'm Mark and I'm a Scottish stand-up comedian and massive Harry Potter nerd. My Harry Potter 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 six 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.

This was a lovely tour full of Harry Potter knowledge that I, an avid Harry Potter geek, did not know. I highly recommend!

This was a really fun experience! Mark does an awesome job engaging the group, showcasing his knowledge, and providing lots of humor along the way. I’m not Harry Potter fan at all (bought this for my wife) and I still had a lot of fun. Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and it was better than expected. Mark was very personable and has great knowledge about Harry Potter. This could be a fun experience during the lockdown.

What an amazing experience on this virtual Harry Potter tour! Mark is a excellent story teller with wonderful insights about lovely places in London that is connected to The world of Harry Potter. Highly recommended virtual experience.

It was amazing experience as if I were actually in London walking with Mark. I was planning to visit London this summer, but cancelled my trip due to the current situation of Covid-19. So, as soon as I found this tour on Airbnb, I booked it and it was a great decision that I made! I could tell he loves Harry Potter movies and novels very much, which made this virtual tour lively. He was also very good at getting guests involved even we were from all over the world. I felt like I was physically with the other guests and enjoyed together entire time of the tour.

I booked it because I miss London so much during this time, and Mark’s footages make me feel like walking down the London streets, with a bonus of Harry Potter stories and British jokes. (I guess I’m slowly becoming British after all these years?) thank you so much, and I cannot wait to get back to London soon!
