“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good…” 🔮
If you are a real Harry Potter fan this is a MUST visit place. The Warner Bros studio near to London is full of relics. You can see complete movie sets, authentic costumes, objects…
The studio is located about 1-1.5 hours drive from central London near Leavesden. If you book your trip via a guided tour (I went with golden tour) they usually have bus transport vica versa.
The tour is pretty amazing, once you get inside you don’t need to hurry there is no time limit, so take your time, make epic experiences.
First, you will arrive to the Great Hall, the journey starts from here. One of the most iconic scene during the films. The opening ceremonies, the famous Halloween dinners, or the sorting of the students to different houses. All happened here.
Leaving the Great Hall you will enter to the first huge studio where costumes, real movie sets from all 7 movies are visible. You can visit Dumbledor’s office, or Umbridge’s pink room and many more….
You can take potion classes with Snape, check the memories for the pensive or visit Gryffindor’s common room.
If you are brave enough, you can try to ride a broomstick front of the green screen.
One of the most amazing part is clearly the Diagonalley. It is funny to walk on the streets of Diagonally where the real movie scenes were recorded. Potion shops, Olivanders Wand store, the entrance of the Gringotts….
Entering the garden area, you can bang on the door of the Dursleys under Privet Drive nr. 4. See the tomb of Voldemort, or hop on the Knight Bus.
And these are just a few thing I mentioned from all the amazing things you will see there. Also, you can taste a mug of butter beer.
Once you are done with the studio tour, you will enter the souvenir shop where clearly anything is for sale: wands, clothes, chocolate frogs, Bertie Boots every flavor beans, sorting hat etc…
As I mentioned, you can book your trip via a company, then you don’t need to worry about anything. If you make your trip by yourself, I suggest to buy your ticket few days before visit (https://www.wbstudiotour.co.uk) and arrive 20-30 minutes earlier.
