About the Trip

Walk through the same areas of the UK that inspired the iconic Harry Potter book series. Taste butter beer in Diagon Alley and ride on the Hogwarts Express. This trip will inspire the magic in us all!

Join the Girl Scouts of Central Texas in traveling from Texas to Florida to the United Kingdom. Our Harry Potter journey is packed with exciting destinations, such as Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade at Universal Studios Florida. We will then jet across the Atlantic to tour the original sets at Warner Bros. London and explore other Harry Potter filming locations around the UK!

Pack your wand and robe to enjoy these and other wizarding adventures.
