Harry Potter Tours

Updated on December 5, 2014

Movie Location Tours

Have you ever watched a film and then wondered 'Where was that filmed?' or 'I would love to visit that location'. Well these days you probably can. If the show has been a 'hit' then there will be a tour to visit the locations either running or in the making. These days there are lots of companies which offer movie location tours. Visiting filming locations of your favorite movie, seeing original location photographs, hearing stories and enjoying trivia with like minded people and even meeting celebrities or people from behind the scene is in a days work for a movie tour company.

The best way to find out about them is do a little bit of research and read reviews on Trip Adviser. I have done this for Harry Potter tours, so if your interested in going on one carry on reading! :-) And please vote on the poll below. I want to find out which is the most popular film.
