Audio description tours of Harry Potter: A History of Magic

Join us as we take you on an audio-described tour of our Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition.

We will unveil rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library’s collection, capturing the traditions of folklore and magic which are at the heart of the Harry Potter stories. Marvel at original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and illustrator Jim Kay, both on display for the first time. 

This tour is suitable for blind and partially-sighted visitors. The tour is co-delivered by an audio describer and a curator. It includes a 30-minute handling session followed by a 1-hour tour.

Please meet at the Information Desk in the Main Entrance 15 minutes before the start time. 

One free ticket for a companion is available per visitor. Guide and assistance dogs are welcome. If you require any other support, or have other access requirements for this tour, please contact or phone +44 (0)20 7412 7797.
