A Magical Tour of York


The Wizard Quest is a fun, interactive walking tour for all ages (may contain mild peril). Discover the magic in the streets of York, with professional actors to guide you, entertain you and (hopefully) protect you from anything lurking in the shadows….

Make potions, help the Ministry Of Magic find their lost key, learn some useful spells and see our beautiful city in a whole new magical light!

From 7th March (see our Facebook page for exact dates) we run public tours on Thursday and Friday evenings. These begin at 5.45pm in King’s Square and last around 45 minutes. Dressing up is welcome but not obligatory, and children must be accompanied by an adult as we can take no responsibility for disapparation or transfiguration. £8 adults/£4 children, tickets can be pre-booked online or just turn up on the night (subject to availability).

Bring wands if you have them!

Dogs/well behaved werewolves welcome.

Tours are weather dependant and we reserve the right to postpone/cancel in case of inclement weather/unsafe walking conditions. Please advise us of any access needs, allergies or intolerances.
