Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the 6th film in the series has now hit the big screen and the wizard is as popular as ever. Evidence of the phenomena is everywhere. On my way in to work in our Regent Street Office, I pass a gaggle of tourists photographing the staff at the famous toy store, Hamleys, who are dressed as characters from the film. Kids and adults alike are seduced into the Harry Potter world, as they find Harry et al … welcoming them into the store. Hamleys has a section on the 5th floor – wands, Hogwart’s pins, even Harry Potter’s Levitating Wand Pen – Harry Potter toys at Hamleys
At British Tours, we have been busy adding the new settings from the latest film to our already wildly popular Harry Potter filming locations tours.
In London, the Millennium Bridge is one new addition. Outside of London, the picturesque 13th century Cotswolds village of Lacock was once again heavily featured, including the beautiful Abbey and historic Angel pub.
British Tours offers a wide range of tours of the film locations to suit all Potter fans requirements, whether it be a 3 hour tour of the London sights or a full day out in the country to see such places as Oxford, Gloucester and Lacock.
