3. Georgian House Hotel

The next Harry Potter attraction in London is not so much of an attraction as it is a hotel. You have heard right, there is an entire hotel inspired by the Harry Potter movies. The Georgian House, as the hotel is called, can be found in the Westminster borough close to the Victoria train station and within walking distance to Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.

Georgian House Hotel

There are 5 rooms in the hotel inspired by the Wizarding World. You will find the rooms decorated with Wizarding World decorations, cosy wooden beds like in the Harry Potter movies, magnificent fireplaces, floral tapestry, and much more to make your stay memorable. All of this for an absolute fair price of 130eur per night. This Harry Potter-themed attraction is a catch and therefore sold out way in advance.
