Description

Welcome to a brand new Harry Potter podcast presented to you by Tour for Muggles – every muggle’s favourite Harry Potter film location tour!

We’ll discuss the difference between book and film, chat where it might be located in ‘real life’, and explore behind the scenes, bantering our way through curious facts, logistical conundrums and even interviewing those with insider knowledge. The entire podcast is run by our very own tour guides, so don’t hesitate to subscribe so you’ll never miss on out on a spell-binding episode of WANDerlust!Support the team by buying them a butterbeer on www.ko-fi.com/wand

Our hosts Will Hagrid, Alex Scamander, Greta Granger and Nick Longbottom are getting their feet wet, diving right in, and holding their breath for some truly fascinating underwater content!

In episode 5, our tour guides have finally made it to Diagon Alley! Our hosts Will Hagrid, Alex Scamander, Greta Granger and Nick Longbottom debate back and forth about where the real-life inspiration might be – which mostly depends on who went to uni where!

In our third episode, our tour guides are aiming for The-Hut-On-Rock! Our hosts Greta Granger, Nicholas Longbottom, Will Hagrid and Alex Scamander tackle a shortlist of potential locations to find out if we can narrow down the moment where Harry’s life changes! Could it Blackwater Estuary, because Hagrid likes dolphins? Or maybe it’s in the North Sea, so Hagrid can drop past Azkaban? Does Uncle Vernon actually have a gun license? How tall is Harry and why does it matter? Are four packets of crisps really enough for rations? And is it physically possible for a pack of Thestrals to carry Hagrid’s weight?With plenty of logistical conundrums to answer – how did the Dursleys get off that island anyway? – explore the many aspects of the Hut-On-The-Rock in just over 30 minutes!

In our second episode, join our tour guides as we take a trip to the zoo!

What happened to that boa constrictor after he escaped? Or was it actually a Burmese Python? Did you know there was a band called Parcelmouth?

In our inaugural episode, join our tour guides as we explore the nitty-gritty of the most muggle location ever: Privet Drive! Our hosts Will Hagrid, Greta Granger, Alex Scamander, and Nicholas Longbottom strive to discover the real location – and there are a few contenders! We talk about where the filming was done (several spots, actually!), and one or two behind the scenes stories. Did you know Privet was a type of plant? And did JK Rowling really base Privet Drive on her house in Winterbourne, where she lived when she was little? Is Dursley really as boring as it was made out to be? And what is Potter or Notter?All these questions – plus some logistical conundrums will be explored in a mere 30 minutes!
