We opted for the bus tour, rather than trying to get there on our own and were so glad that we did. Once we were on the bus, the convenience was worth the cost of the tour. The exhibit was excellent my husband is not a Harry Potter fan - no books or movies- and he thoroughly enjoyed it. It was exciting to see the sets and costumes, but the behind the scenes exhibits were equally enjoyable. We especially liked the special effects rooms which highlighted the mechanics behind so many of the creatures in the movies. We took the 3 hour tour, which was just the right amount of time for us since we did not participate in any of the special break-out offerings wand wizardry, broomstick flying, etc., but if you are a devoted fan, or have children with you, you might look for a longer tour. It' s important to note that the tour bus adheres closely to it's schedule- we waited 10 minutes for one of the passengers and finally left without him/her. The bus driver did confer with another driver and made arrangements to assist the tardy passenger so it wasn't a heartless decision. Our driver, Michelangelo, was very professional.
On the downside, we had never taken a bus tour from Victoria Station and did not easily find the bus, or the bus terminal. Google maps was not helpful and we were directed by the Information people at the station to follow the line on the floor to the bus terminal. Easier said than done, once outside the station we had to look for small signs posted on lamp posts to guide us several blocks to the bus terminal. Once at the terminal, we were directed to Gate1 which was noted on our voucher unfortunately, the tour left from Gate 0 and we spent tense moments trying to find out where to go. Again, once we were on the bus things were great, but had we not allowed ourselves ample time to find the terminal, etc., we would have literally missed the bus.
Great driver, great tour, good time management
I am not a fan of harry potter but this was quite interesting my wife and grandson looooved it
Clean, good. The diagonal ally was fantastic. All the exhibits were just fantastic. I have seen only the first and part of the second movie but it was still great to see the sets, the Hogwarts Express, platform 9 3/4 etc etc....
Wonderful experience once inside the exhibition. Unfortunately after you receive your ticket and pass through security you have to que for a very long time inside before you can actually go into the exhibition. You get 3 hours to visit but that includes the queuing inside, which means in reality you have far less time to enjoy the experience.
I only wish there was more time! For a true Potterhead this is IT. Diagon Alley, Hogwarts Express?!?!?! Does it get better than this? Totally worth every penny. I could spend all day here. The time we had wasn't nearly enough. We will do it again though to make sure we cover every square inch.
Must see if you love the Harry Potter series
The Harry Potter Studio Tour was worth every penny. Even though it was very crowded, the crowds were well managed. The number of authentic sets available for viewing was stupendous. The butterbeer is a must!

This was an excellent trip and worth the money. We were collected outside the Evans Evans office in London and transported to Warner Brothers Studios with a few pickups at the beginning. We arrived and the driver collected the tickets and distributed them to everyone. we had 3.5 hours at the attraction. We had a train to catch so that was ideal but it might be a little short for some people.
The tour was excellent and the level of detail was also great.
I can recommend this tour without hesitation.
If you are a fan of the Harry Potter movies, you should not miss going to the Warner Bros. Studio and seeing the sets, props, costumes, etc. from the movies. Once the opening talk in the theater is finished, you move through the rest of the site at your own pace. Go early so you can spend as much time as you like in each area!
