There’s magic out there! You’ve just got to know where to look. Perhaps walking and exploring London on your own and following one of the many self-guided tours available to download from London for Free is the answer? Maybe there are some other tours to go alongside exploring alone that will reveal the magic, especially if your time in London is precious.


If your visit to London is short or you just want someone else to do the guiding for you, here are two fun tours you could join – and maybe, just maybe the magic will be revealed.

Harry Potter Tour London

You’ll definitely find the magic on this tour especially if you’re a Harry Potter fan. And who isn’t a Potter fan? These tours take you around some of the famous sites, film locations and the studios used in the films. Any of these themed Potter tours will reveal the ‘magic’ and are sure to light up any London trip?


If more proof were needed, these tours are perhaps the most popular in London. Visit platform 9 ¾, go to the places that were the inspiration for Diagon Alley and the Leaky Cauldron, plus see all the iconic London landmarks featured in the films.

Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour

If you’re looking to capture a different kind of London, a hop-on hop-off bus tour is another great way to uncover the ‘magic’ of the city. Not only do you get to see even more of the capital than by walking, but you will also learn about the city’s traumatic, turbulent and triumphant past.


Take your seat on the bus, sit back, relax and enjoy the sites of modern and ancient London. Listen to the commentary and if you really fancy exploring somewhere further, then hop-off at the next stop and do just that, explore. You can always catch a later bus to rejoin the tour, that’s the joy of hop-on hop-off. You are in charge.


Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour is flexible, value for money and reveals a different London to the one seen while walking.


Two guided tours, different but both revealing the magic of London – explore and enjoy!
