What You Can Expect

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.

I cried when I arrived and when I left. I am a very devoted Harry Potter fan, and after visiting this wonderful place, I know that I will be a fan for life. If you like the Harry Potter, especially the movies, and you are in London, I say this is an absolute must!

Best day ever...for our Harry Potter loving daughter!! We really enjoyed the tour as well. So much to see, and we got our first taste of Butter Beer, actually quite good. Highly recommend this for anyone or family who has followed the lives of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the rest.

Even better than I expected...

We are huge Harry Potter fans, and this was an emotional trip. I would highly recommend an earlier tour when it's less crowded. We were able to get through with minimal crowds, but as we were leaving, lines were forming. A great family activity...

Super experience!
We would love to spend an extra hour or two in the studios. We were forced by the return tickets to leave at a fix time.

Our tour office was at the Colonnade Shopping Center on Buckingham Palace Road near Victoria Station. Big white block-long building, you can't miss it. We were picked up on time in a clean air-conditioned double-decker bus wrapped in Potter logos. London traffic was terrible making the ride out much longer, but the ride was comfortable. The studios and tour were very impressive. My Potter fans loved it! I could see how a few hours might not be enough time for fans to soak in every little piece of Potter memorabilia or stand in line for photos/videos on the broomsticks, but it was just enough time for us. The new Hogwarts Express area was also pretty cool. Ample shopping, food, and butterbeer without the foam please!. I'd definitely recommend this tour!

Go, you won't be disappointed! Great day out! Do the 7.5 hours tour!

This is one of those things that people rave about to the point that you think it will be overrated - but it wasn't! We had a wonderful time. The audio tour is well worth it. So many show sets, props and information. The introduction movie with the 'big reveal' it perfect! The bus ride out can be a bit long and dry, but hang in there. The queue was long to enter the exhibit when we arrived, but it moved quickly. The only drawback was the food service. There is only 1 quick service restaurant and it was a bit slow. The options were limited. Other than that it was really great.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Wonderful place. Very interesting and very easy to get around. The folks at the Studio were helpful and everyone was happy and smiling like at Disneyland! Would highly recommend it to young and old.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Great tour itself! The bus ride to it was about an hour and a half. Had to wait after the tour for our bus time for about an hour so take your time through while touring. It is a self guided tour great for all ages and fans of the movies and books! Well worth the money!
