What to expect

Follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and the other Hogwarts students as you explore inside one of Harry Potter's most famous filming location, New College. Founded in 1379, the cloisters of New College may be familiar to Harry Potter fans and you'll enjoy its curious grotesques, attractive gardens and impressive medieval city walls. The college is said to be haunted so if you're lucky you might see more than just talking pictures and floating lamps in its medieval Hogwarts-style dining hall.

You'll also discover the Divinity School at the Bodleian Library which is where the hospital and dance scenes took place and even find out how life at Hogwarts compares with a modern-day Oxford education. Will you be able to answer all of the guide's Harry Potter quiz questions along the way?
