5 Reasons to Take the Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour
Embrace the Potter madness at the Warner Bros Studio Tour
Learn all the behind the scenes magic of one of the biggest film franchises of all time, on this amazing Harry Potter tour...

We’ve all been waiting a long time for those Hogwarts letters to arrive now – more than 20 years in fact! If you’re getting tired of waiting, you can get your Potter fix at the Warner Bros Studio Tour in London, where you can discover everything from The Great Hall, to the Knight Bus on Privet Drive and Hogwarts Castle itself.

Here are just some of the dozens of amazing exhibits you really shouldn't miss...

 

1. Soar over London on a broomstick

Where else will you get the opportunity to zoom over popular London attractions on a broomstick? Pop on your cloak and Gryffindor scarf and take your place on the broom, which uses magic (and, erm, 3D technology and wind machines) to bring to life the sensation of flying over London at nighttime. Make sure you're photo ready for the end!

A true Harry Potter experience wouldn't be complete without riding a broomstick, so make sure you give it a try.

 

2. Taste a Butterbeer

If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love the creamy Butterbeer drink you can buy around half way through the tour. Butterbeer is a golden coloured sugary drink topped with a layer of frothy foam...yum! The Harry Potter tour is self-guided, so you’re free to go through to the picnic area at any time and take your pick from a range of snacks including the delicious Butterbeer drink and some creamy Butterbeer ice cream. 

 

3. Catch a cauldron in the act

There are loads of amazing interactive exhibits at the Warner Bros Studio Tour which come to life in front of your eyes. You'll recognise iconic sets from the Harry Potter movies and get to explore them yourself, but at the Warner Bros Studio Tour, you'll also get the chance to see the magic up close. The potions room is particularly mischievous and you’ll see why when you get there! Make sure you look out for the little details while you’re on the tour and keep a special eye on the potions kept by Snape in the dungeons...you might just recognise a few familiar ingredients.

 

4. Come eye to eye with a goblin

If you’re interested in seeing how the Harry Potter films, and in particular the weird and wonderful creatures which appear in them, are brought to life, then the makeup and special effects department will be right up your alley. See the intricacies of the goblin masks, make-up work and the technology used to create iconic moments in the film.

 

5. Board the Hogwarts Express

The iconic red train is probably one of the first things you think about when you picture the Harry Potter films and now you can see it in all of its shining glory on the recreated 9 ¾ platform (where there’s of course a photo opportunity to be had!). Better yet, you can go inside the Hogwarts Express train, where significant scenes from the films over the years have been recreated in individual carriages.

 

The studio tour, which has been running ever since the last Harry Potter film wrapped is extremely popular with visitors from all over the world and sells out weeks and even months in advance, which is why it’s important to pre-book.
