I can stand where he stood? *faints*

First stop: Reptile House at ZSL London Zoo

Taking it all the way back to the first film, before Harry had a clue.

Second stop: River Thames & Millennium Bridge

A quick trip down the Thames brought us to the Millennium Bridge, destroyed by Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Onto: Leadenhall Market

Where they filmed scenes for Diagon Alley in Harry Potter and the Philospher's Stone. Side note: it's a great place to shop, especially if you're looking for weird cut outs of celebrities faces.

Next: Borough Market

Scenes for the Leaky Cauldron, and more of Diagon Alley, were filmed in this location. If you've seen the first three Harry Potter films enough times, you can easily notice the shots used from this location.

Recreating moments: Scotland Yard

Just outside Scotland Yard is where Harry, Ron, and Hermione broke into the Ministry of Magic.

Avoiding Death Eaters at: Picadilly Circus

Hermione rescues the boy with her quick thinking to apparate to Picadilly Circus, which is full of people (so them appearing out of nowhere totally went unnoticed)

Onto the Tour: The Making of Harry Potter

This tour is hands down the best experience any Harry Potter fan can ever have. The Harry Potter Exhibition and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter are incredible, but this takes the cake.

No. 4 Privet Drive + HEDWIG

YES. THE REAL HEDWIG. During filming there were many owls, male and female, used to portray Hedwig. While there we got to meet Emma, the most recent owl who played Hedwig.
