Harry Potter & The Cotswolds


Experience the magic of Harry Potter with our immersive Harry Potter Tours. Follow in the footsteps of Harry, Ron, and Hermione as we take you to the enchanting locations that inspired the famous movies in Oxford and the Cotswolds.

One of Oxford’s prestigious colleges served as the inspiration for the grand dining hall of Hogwarts and the iconic staircase scenes. Explore the very college where the unforgettable scene from “The Goblet of Fire” was filmed, where Harry confronts Malfoy and is transformed into a ferret by Professor McGonagall. Discover the spot where the infirmary scene in “The Philosopher’s Stone” was shot, where Harry seeks refuge after his encounter with Voldemort.

After a fulfilling morning, we’ll stop at a charming country pub for a delicious lunch before venturing to one of England’s most magnificent Cathedrals. Gloucester Cathedral, with its 900-year-old history, provided the backdrop for various scenes in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and “The Chamber of Secrets,” including Hogwarts’ corridors, the bewitched bathrooms, and the lively portraits and ghostly encounters.

For film enthusiasts, we’ll conclude the day in the medieval village of Lacock. This picturesque village has been featured in numerous renowned films, such as “Downton Abbey,” “Wolf Hall,” “Pride and Prejudice,” and, of course, “Harry Potter.” Lacock Abbey itself served as Hogwarts in two of the films, while the abbey’s cloisters were featured in multiple scenes. Additionally, one of the houses in Lacock stood as the home of Harry Potter’s parents.

Our Harry Potter Tours can be personalized to include as many sites as you desire, and we can even incorporate other attractions like Stonehenge into the itinerary. Prepare to be transported into the enchanting world of Harry Potter as we bring these iconic locations to life.

Cotswold Tours & Travel are the most accommodating and creative group I’ve ever had the pleasure of travelling with!

We knew we wanted to do private touring of the Cotswolds, so we asked Eddie Dale to help us design 3 days of “out of the ordinary” touring. And did he ever! David picked us up at our hotel in London, then travelled to Oxford, then Blenheim Palace, then indirectly to Stow-on-the-Wold. Wonderfully informative. Day two we did on our own — walking through fields to Bourton-on-t...
