Start saving your galleons. 

Passports and broomsticks on standby, American cruise company Barge Ladies is bringing a Harry Potter Magic Cruise to England.

The 8-person Harry Potter-themed cruise will travel down the River Thames, stopping at a number of iconic Harry Potter locations along the way.

Fans will recognise Virginia Water, where Harry first met Buckbeak in The Prisoner of Azkaban and Picket Post Close, the home of the Dursley family.

Other stops include the model for Hogwarts’ Great Hall at Oxford’s Christ Church College and the Warner Brothers Studio Tour The Making of Harry Potter to see sets, costumes, and props.

To truly be immersed in the magic, an onboard chef will prepare a line up of Hogwarts-inspired meals. An open bar is also included (fingers crossed Butterbeer is in stock).

Round up seven of your muggle friends and start saving your galleons because the six-day river cruise doesn’t come cheap at over USD $4000 per person.
