It’s Almost That Time Again

Yep. With July’s release of the new Harry Potter movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and the release of the final book in the series Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Britain is going to see a surge of tourism again. Since 2001, when the first Harry Potter film came out, the U.K. has experienced a tourism phenomenon.

This time, London-based tour operator British Tours Ltd. will be ready. They received their first Harry Potter inquiry in October 2000, before the first film had been released. By 2006, they were conducting more than 200 tours a year.

The Harry Potter films use several of Britain’s historic sights as backdrops, and all of them have seen an increase in visitor numbers since the first film came out.

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
