Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London The Making of Harry Potter

Board a double-decker bus in central London and drive 17 miles (27 km) northwest to the English borough of Hertfordshire. Arrive in the town of Watford, home to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, where you'll witness the legendary Harry Potter film series come to life.

Set off independently to explore the real sets used in these iconic movies. Imagine walking side-by-side with Harry, Ron and Hermione as you explore the Great Hall, view Dumbledore's office and stroll down Diagon Alley, featuring the storefronts of Ollivanders wand shop, Flourish and Blotts, the Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Wizarding Bank and Eeylops Owl Emporium.

Admire the costumes and props used by Harry and his counterparts, and learn about the special effects and makeup that brought magical characters such as Dobby and the Death Eaters to life. Remember to bring your camera — there are exciting photo opportunities around every corner.

Cap your visit at Platform 9 ¾, where you can get a glimpse into how some the film’s most iconic scenes were created. Pose with a luggage trolley as it disappears through the platform wall, and get up close to the original Hogwarts Express steam engine. Marvel as steam billows from the 78-year-old engine and admire the platform’s glass roof, yellow brick walls and luggage racks.

On your drive back to London, sit back and reminisce on your fantastic day in the magical world of Harry Potter.

Very fun interactive tour for any Harry Potter fan!
We had a mishap with dates on our tickets and called Viator hoping they'd help us out and they were everything BUT helpful! They were short with us and wouldn't do a think to help us. I'd suggest using a difference tour site.

Caught the 10am departure bus which means 11am entry into the studio and the return to London was at 3pm. This was more than enough time and was able to get the 2pm return bus due to there being room.

A must for any Harry Potter fan! The bus was a convenient as it also allowed you to leave at different hours regardless of what was indicated on the return voucher. Personally, I found the earliest departure the best choice as the site gets filled up with crowds through the day.

Gut organisiert, alles problemlos abgewickelt. Einzig zu überdenken ist, ob es nicht möglich sein kann, das man, falls man die Tour früher beendet hat und Platz vorhanden ist, mit einen der früheren Busse wieder zurückfahren kann.
