Harry Potter-themed cruise is something you definitely want to go on, statOn January 25, 2018 by Kenna
Hardcore Harry Potter fans have a chance to tour the locations of the Harry Potter movies this summer in a super-exclusive boat tour that sounds like a dream for anyone who wants to see where the films were shot in England.
The Harry Potter river cruise, a unofficial seven-night experience aboard an eight-person barge, will be weaving its way along the Thames River in England this summer, stopping at various iconic scenes from the Harry Potter film series and taking passengers on a behind-the-scenes tour of Warner Bros. Studios, Cruise Critic reported Wednesday.
Along the way, the cruise aboard the Magna Carta will stop at Picket Post Close (the location of 4 Privet Drive), Christ Church College at Oxford University (Hogwarts’s Great Hall), and Virginia Water (where Harry met Buckbeak the hippogriff) where passengers can tour the iconic landmarks. The cruise also stops at other famous locations around England including Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle.
All of the tours are covered by the cost of the trip — starting at a whopping $5,350 — along with meals, wine, an afternoon tea experience, and an open bar. The cabins are outfitted with some impressive wooden and leather furniture you can check out on the website.
The exclusive Harry Potter cruise takes only two trips in the summer, one starting on Aug. 5 and the other on Aug. 19. Alternatively, you can charter the boat yourself if you have the money for it.
