The Warner Bros Studio Tour gives visitors the opportunity to experience first hand the magic behind the Harry Potter films.
The tour allows access to original sets, costumes, props, animatronic creatures and awe-inspiring special effects. It also reveals some closely guarded secrets about the making of the Harry Potter films – the most successful film series of all time.
During the tour you will be able to step inside the Great Hall, explore Dumbledore’s office, set foot in Diagon Alley and rediscover other memorable sets from the films, including Hagrid’s hut and Professor Umbridge’s office at the Ministry of Magic. There are plenty of interactive activities too, including the chance to ‘fly’ a broomstick and sip a cup of Butterbeer!
Special features run during the year. You can find out more about these and the tour in general, as well as purchase tickets here.
Based 20 miles north-west of London, trains from London Euston take around 20 minutes to Watford Junction from where you can use the shuttle bus service to the Studio. Alternatively there is a coach service which operates a return service from central London, further details here.
If you are planning a stay in any of our London vacation rentals the Studio Tour makes a great day out for all the family.
