Harry Potter Tour: (Warner Bros. Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter)

KidRated’s Harry Potter Tour Top Tips:

  • Bring cash for Butterbeer, green screen photos and the gift shop
  • Look out for special events, particularly at Hallowe’en and Christmas
  • With so many photo ops, make sure your camera is fully charged

Ever since J.K. Rowling dreamt up the idea on a crowded train from London to Manchester, the adventures of Harry Potter, Ron and Hermione have been eagerly followed by fans worldwide.

 

Ever wondered what Butterbeer tastes like? Want to see how big the Great Hall really is? If so, this is the perfect tour for you! Fans of all ages can enjoy learning about the magical talents and efforts that went into the creation of the famous Harry Potter film series.

 

The tour is organised into different sections. You can see all aspects of the set behind-the-scenes from the model of the Hogwarts castle used in filming to Privet Drive itself where Harry’s journey began. Special events take place periodically throughout the year, such as ‘Wand Week’ which gives budding wizards and witches the chance to duel with a death eater.

 

You can see the original Hogwarts Express in a recreation of Platform 9 3/4. You will have the chance to pose at a luggage trolley as it disappears into a wall and even explore the inside of a carriage on the train. Read more about it here. All this is included in the price of a standard ticket. There has never been a better time to book your visit to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

Parent Point of View

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • This isn’t a cheap day out but these are the real Harry Potter film sets so it is recommended.
  • After being led into the Great Hall, you’re free to explore so try to stick together or have a plan to find each other before seeing the exhibits outside.
  • Don’t play hide and seek inside. Yeah, I learned my lesson as it took ages to find the kids!
  • Butterbeer is so sweet it makes your teeth hurt but, go on, you can only buy it here.
  • The shop is pricey so limit the souvenirs to something small.

    What a place! I thought I’d heard everything there was to hear about this as so many friends had taken their children – but I was completely unprepared for how brilliant it was. Took our 5 and 7 year old boys and spent an incredible 6 hours there and we all loved every single second. Well worth the money and a very definite 10/10, magical!

    We took our 8 year old son for his birthday with 3 friends of the same age , they absolutely loved it, as did the elders. Plenty of interactive exhibits to bring the filming alive and great to see so many well known sets up close. This would suit children ( and adults ) of all ages who are old enough to see the films and appreciate the detail and effort in every scene. Easy to find , park and explore , took around 3 hours and great fun . Would definitely consider a return visit in a few years time once the kids are older and can appreciate the more technical aspects. Only down side is the cost and expensive gift shop ( especially the wands ! ) Fabulous day out 10/10 !
