Explore the magical world of Harry Potter in Oxford, a fun adventure for Muggles and Wizards alike! Oxford is a great place to discover the secrets of Hogwarts and walk the same mysterious hallways Harry, Hermione and Ron once did.
Walk through the historic University City of Oxford and find the famous film locations inside the colleges that were featured in many of the early Harry Potter movies and learn about the places across the city that inspired the movies.
Bodleian Library – Duke Humfrey’s Library: Remember when Harry walked through the Hogwarts library hidden underneath his invisibility cloak with the intention to steal a book; this scene was filmed in the Duke Humfrey’s Library, part of the Bodleian Libraries and is only accessible with a private tour.
New College Cloisters: In the movie Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry comes face to face with Malfoy who is sitting on a gigantic oak tree and where Malfoy was then turned into a ferret by Mad-Eye Moody. This particular tree nestles in the New College Cloisters.
Harry Potter - Oxford university & Warner Bros studio tour - full day 10 hours
Christ Church: Christ Church College provided the location for many Harry Potter scenes. The staircase was used to film the famous entrance scene where Professor McGonagall meets Harry, Ron and Hermione. The staircase leads then up to the Tudor Great Dining Hall which was used as an inspiration for the great Hogwarts Dining Hall. The hallways of Christ Church were also used to film the scene in which Hermione shows Harry the Quidditch trophy his father won.
But there are many more similarities between Oxford and Hogwarts to explore; did you, for example, notice the many grotesques along the walls of the college buildings, and their resemblance to the statues Professor McGonagall awakes to defend Hogwarts
Blenheim Palace is a monumental English country housesituated in the civil parish of Blenheim near Woodstock, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. It is the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough, and the only non-royal non-episcopal country house in England to hold the title of palace. The palace, one of England's largest houses, was built between 1705 and circa 1722. Blenheim Palace was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
The building of the palace was originally intended to be a reward to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, from a grateful nation for the duke's military triumphs against the French and Bavarians during the War of the Spanish Succession, culminating in the 1704 Battle of Blenheim. However, soon after its construction began, the palace became the subject of political infighting; this led to Marlborough's exile, the fall from power of his duchess, and lasting damage to the reputation of the architect Sir John Vanbrugh.
The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university located in Oxford, England. It has no known date of foundation, but there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation. It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge. The two "ancient universities" are frequently jointly referred to as "Oxbridge". The history and influence of the University of Oxford has made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world

The university is made up of a variety of institutions, including 38 constituent colleges and a full range of academic departments which are organised into four divisions. All the colleges are self-governing institutions within the university, each controlling its own membership and with its own internal structure and activities. Being a city university, it does not have a main campus and instead its buildings and facilities are scattered throughout the city centre. Most undergraduate teaching at Oxford is organised around weekly tutorials at the colleges and halls, supported by classes, lectures and laboratory work provided by university faculties and departments.
The university operates the world's oldest university museum, as well as the largest university press in the world and the largest academic library system in Britain. Oxford has educated many notable alumni, including 29 Nobel laureates, 27 prime ministers of the United Kingdom and many heads of state and government around the world. Sixty-nine Nobel Prize winners, 4 Fields Medalists, and 6 Turing Award winners have studied, worked, or held visiting fellowships at the University of Oxford. Oxford is the home of the Rhodes Scholarship, one of the world's oldest international scholarships.
