During the last few weeks I got quite a few messages of people asking me if I could give them some informations about the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. Because this was one of the best experiences in my life so far (believe me… I am NOT exaggerating, it was incredible!) I decided to share it with you guys.
Tickets: We booked our tickets on the official WB internet page in advance. The price for one adult ticket including the audio guide and a souvenir booklet was nearly £40 (= ca. 55€).
How to get there: We took the train from London Euston to Watford Junction and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. At Watford Junction you can take the Harry Potter shuttle to the Warner Bros. Studios for about £2.
Honestly, the studio tour is breathtaking – for Potterheads and movie-nerds alike. You see so many behind-the-scenes stuff, making-off and other random stuff you’d never believe if you wouldn’t see it there. When I was there it was “Feathers and flight” season so we got to see the animal actors of the owls in the movies and they were so cute.
I’d definitely recommend to take the audio guide because it’s amazing! It’s recorded by Tom Felton (duh, isn’t that reason enough??) and gives you so much additional information you wouldn’t know if you’d only stroll around without the guide. I kid you not, the whole visit felt like a roller coaster of emotions to me, with my excitement going up and up and up only to result in me crying and being speechless in the very last room.
Even though the whole thing isn’t exactly what I’d call cheap, I’d definitely recommend going there to anyone interested in Harry Potter. By the way, Butterbeer isn’t as good as it sounds.. it’s basically just apple juice with cream on top, kinda weird :D
