Muggles welcome! Go inside Christ Church and the Bodleian Library on a magical adventure into the medieval buildings of Oxford University. With a fun Oxford student guide, complete with a quiz, the odd prop, and terrible jokes and puns! Suitable for devout Harry Potter fans, along with those publicly unwilling to admit their devotion, and those with no prior interest but looking for a fun way to explore! The tour includes other famous books such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings - along with the history of Oxford University.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Blackwell's Bookshop, 48-51 Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BQ England

Not quite Flourish and Blotts but as close as a muggle bookshop can be. Blackwells is the dream of every Ravenclaw, holding approximately holding 250,000 volumes, which translates to 3 miles of books! This is even more impressive knowing that their first store measured only 12 feet square, and held just 700 used books.
Don't forget to have a look at the roof of the building from a distance. Don't worry the stone figure you'll see on top isn't someone petrified. It is a statue by Antony Gormley; one of a series of sculptures called “Another Time II”.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Bodleian Library Bodleian Library Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BG England

One of the largest libraries in England and home to archaic medieval books on spells and wizards!

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Clarendon Building, Broad St., Oxford OX1 3BA England

Learn about how magic or occult sciences were studied at Oxford! These were not seen as completely separate from science until the end of the seventeenth century, so alchemy and astrology were researched here until then.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: The Divinity School, Oxford OX1 3AZ, UK

This dramatic site is not only one of the oldest parts of the University, but it was also used in various scenes when filming of Harry Potter was taking place in Oxford. Instantly recognisable as a Harry Potter site, with one of the best examples of medieval architecture in England.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Radcliffe Camera, Radcliffe Square, Oxford OX1 4AJ England

A truly iconic Oxford landmark! Learn about the underground passages students take and the rules librarians enforce. Not quite as intensely as Madam Pince though.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: University Church of St. Mary the Virgin, St. Marys Church High Street, Oxford OX1 4BJ England

An iconic door hidden to the side would be inspirational for another famous children's writer, CS Lewis for his famous Chronicles Of Narnia. Hear how he and Tolkien would meet weekly and take inspiration from the Oxford landscape

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: 6 Alfred St, Oxford OX1 4EH, UK

The Bear Inn also known as The Bear is our Oxford equivalent of the Three Broomsticks, dating back to 1242. While butterbeer is not something you can order you are bound to be amazed by their tie collection and the stores behind it.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Christ Church Meadow, Oxford OX1 1DP England

Before diving into the wonders of Christ Church itself we will tell you about another magical connection: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Christ Church, St. Aldates, Oxford OX1 1DP England

The most famous Harry Potter site in Oxford (and the most expensive Oxford College to visit)! Roam the dark corridors, see the inspiration for the Hall of Hogwarts, along with the grand Hogwarts staircase. Feel like Harry on his first day! The tour will end here, allowing you to enjoy the included audio tour and spend as much time as you like here!

Duration: 30 minutes

The trip was organized for our 2 granddaughters aged 15 & 13. Both avid & knowledgeable Harry Potter fans. (They absolutely loved it!) We were lucky to have beautiful weather on a Sunday when Oxford was not ever so busy. Also our guide was superb. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Jaime was a wonderful tour guide and made visiting Oxford a memorable experience by binging Harry Potter costumes, his historical knowledge and humor to the walk through lovely Oxford. Thank you Jaime!

Jaime was such a good tour guide! Very interesting tour - Oxford is such a pretty place. We did a fun little quiz at the end. I would recommend! The cathedrals and library were closed due to graduation which was a bummer but we will just have to come back again! (:

Jamie was an informed and friendly guide. The tour was excellent! He had lots of extra information about the history of other buildings and the college separate from Harry Potter filming, which was appreciated.

We were shown around by Jamie who was excellent. He really brought the city to life with lots of good stories and interesting facts. The cloaks, scarfs and even a wand went down well and helped everyone get into the spirit!! The fact that he was at Oxford university gave him more credibility. He took some photos of us which hopefully you will be able to use.
