Harry Potter cruises are set to begin within the UK


Harry Potter fans can now go on a barge cruise to visit the real-life places that feature in the hit films.

Fans of Harry Potter won't want to miss this themed cruise being offered this summer on the Magna Carta in London.

Some of the other entertainment options for the weekend include a behind-the-scenes look at the new "Harry Potter and The Cursed Child" set to debut on Broadway this spring and performances from the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra alongside memorable scenes from the Harry Potter films.

There guests are able to explore the palace before enjoying a gourmet dinner and heading back to the barge. It's also the location where Harry speaks with Barty Crouch Sr. following the second task in Goblet of Fire.

Next on the itinerary is a tour at the Windsor Castle and then a visit at the Picket Post Close, also known as 4 Privet Drive by Harry Potter fans. That's a cool stop, but the best parts of this cruise have been saved for last.

At Oxford's Christ Church College, fans will recognise its Great Hall as the inspiration for The Great Hall at Hogwarts, and the dramatic 16th century stone staircase which received screen time in several films.

Now for the bad news.

There will be two Harry Potter Magic Cruises with the first one starting on August 19 until August 25.

Hiring the boat privately for the cruise costs nearly $40,000 while cabin with double occupancy is $5,350 per person. At the end of the day, it's still a nice vacation cruise with some Harry Potter highlights, but it would be nice if Warner Bros. came up with an even more satisfying cruise that puts people in the world of Harry Potter even more.
