Where to Eat:
If you're hoping to spot Harry Potter's creator, J.K. Rowling, while in London then look no further than Scott's in Mayfair. Rowling is known to frequent the high-end restaurant, which won the title of BMW Square Meal Restaurant of the Year in 2008. Scott's is known for their selection of seafood, including a Roasted Cornish Seabass with lemon and herb butter and their fresh fish of the day, both $35. They also have an extensive wine list and a private room available for larger parties. Reservations are needed and can be made online.
What to Do:
Some of the must see London locations for Half Blood Prince included the Surbiton railway station, Gloucester Cathedral (where the first and second films were also shot) and the Millennium Bridge. There are also several tour companies that will bring you to various locations used in all of films, like British Tours, who offer 3 or 7-hour group tours of London. The tours stop at Leadenhall Market, the London Zoo and Borough Market, along with dozens of other London landmarks used in the Harry Potter films. The cost per group for a 3 hour tour is $415. Now go book it, you muggles.
