What to expect

Have you always wanted to know if you were a Gryffindor or more of a Slytherin? Wanted to show off to friends and family that you know your N.E.W.Ts from your O.W.Ls? Well, then this is the tour for you. Take a trip around gorgeous York, a walled city which offers much of the inspiration for fictional locations from the books and films, such as Diagon Alley, platform 9-and-three-quarters and much more. You'll be sorted into your school houses, before heading off through the city, enjoying a hilarious Harry Potter trivia quiz, using video clips, costume pieces and live re-enactments. Not only will you be learning about the mysteries behind the Harry Potter stories, but you'll also have the chance to learn about the history of York itself, as you go along. You're in for two hours of fun, so get your wands at the ready, because this is going to be magical.
