Nerd Alert. I was 9 when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone came out and even to this day I am obsessed with all the books and movies. So when I went to London it was on the top of my list to go to the Harry Potter Tour. Located in the WB Studios are the real life props and costumes that were preserved after filming. The cast and crew reassembled the sets themselves! It’s as close as you get to the real thing. Join me here for a mini virtual tour…
A few pretty awesome sets
“Fly” on a broomstick with your Hogwart’s attire.
See the dress costumes up close and personal.
Drink a freshly tapped Butterbeer.
Check out the behind the scenes architecture and drawing models.
Shop for your very own wand.
Get an inside look at Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs.
Walk across the covered wooden bridge.
Get comfortable in Hagrid’s flying motorcycle.
If none of this appeals to you then W H A T kind of fan are you!? 🙂
Tickets have to be purchased in advance. Currently a basic single adult ticket costs 41 Euros and a single child costs 33 Euros.
To purchase tickets visit: Warner Bros Studio Tour- UK
How long to spend there
I took a tour bus from my hostel directly to the studio. We were allotted 3.5 hours from the time we were dropped off. When I first booked my tour it seemed like enough time but there is sooo much to look at and read there. I could have spent a few more hours there and ended up having to rush towards the end. If you’re a mega fan, you’d be better off finding your own transportation and allow yourself more time there.
