Due to the coronavirus crisis, Tour for Muggles is unable to conduct physical walking tours. However, this has not deterred the company from sharing its expertise online. Tour for Muggles has released a brand-new podcast, WANDerlust, which is available for listening on all major platforms. Will Hagrid, who is one of the guides, dramatically introduces the podcast on its debut episode:

The plan is, we’re going to be tour-guiding you digitally, using our expertise gleaned from walking around London and intensive research. We are going to be massively geeking out on every single one of the Harry Potter locations. We’re going chronologically through the books, starting at Privet Drive. We’re going through every one of them in turn in eye-watering, beautiful details. This means we can walk from our desks at home and you can travel in your mind. There’ll be drama, there’ll be excitement, there’ll be filming facts. It will be glorious!

Starting with the home where it all started, number four, Privet Drive, each episode delves into one location in the Harry Potter movies, looking at possible Muggle counterparts, insider information from interviews, and intriguing trivia about them.

Additionally, the team has created a new YouTube channel, Harry Potter and the Quarantined Tour Guides. It will reveal yet more quirky Potter facts, showcase magical-themed baking recipes, and divulge all the gory stories from the wizarding world.

Tour for Muggles’s exciting new podcast and YouTube channel will bring Potterheads of all ages a cauldron-sized dose of magical entertainment and escapism. They are sure to bring joy to fans’ currently mundane lives, and even the most well-versed fans will learn something new. Check them out today!
