For all Potter-maniacs out there, Warner Bros Studio is for YOU! My photographs barely scrape the surface on how much they have to offer – the studios are MASSIVE and are crammed to the brim with scenes, characters, props and so much more.
The tour in all took about 3 hours, and it was by no means boring at any point. There are tour guides in every section on hand to answer all of your questions – trust me, they know everything! Each section held incredible film sets, props from the films, stage directions, outfits and even interactive films to find out more about the Harry Potter films. The main hall is by far the most deceiving in size, it’s so strange seeing things on film and then you’re actually there in the flesh… Throughout the tour, there are interactive features and even the chance for you to ride on a broomstick through London! (Not literally, I’m afraid). We obviously had to try the infamous Butterbeer, at £2.95 a cup it was a fairly generous serving. I’m pretty sure it’s cream soda with a buttery foam – delicious and make sure to grab some! We explored the Night Bus and had photographs outside Privet Drive. The second part of the tour took us through Diagon Alley and Hogwarts. The studios as a whole are extremely easy to explore and the open planned features make it accessible for everyone. I want to tell you so much more but you’ll have to find out for yourselves!
The tour is amazing, but by no means cheap. The food is sold at fairly extortionate prices and as for hitting the gift shop… well I suggest you take out a loan! The gift shop has everything to offer though, from wands and hand crafted notebooks, to sculpted chocolate bars and soft cuddly toys. The experience however is priceless, and I have had so much fun finding out behind-the-scenes truths. The Harry Potter studio tour is a magical experience that would thrill fans of both books and films, no matter what the age! It felt like such a privilege to be able to experience it all for myself.
