A magical experience awaits you
Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Warner Brothers studios, open to the public for the first time. See real costumes and props from the Harry Potter movies, discover secrets of how the films and magical creatures were created. The Harry Potter studio tour is an unforgettable opportunity to experience the magic of Harry Potter for yourself. Official tour tickets can be bought online here, and must be purchased in advance (Harry Potter tour tickets are not sold at the studio). Tickets for the Harry Potter tour include return transport from Central London on a special Harry Potter studio tour bus!
During your tour of the studios and sets, you'll get to visit Platform 9 3/4 and climb on board the REAL Hogwarts Express train, constructed by the original film crew on the Harry Potter movies. Tour visitors can sit in the actual carriage used for filming and watch scenes from the films through the steam engine's windows. During the first part of the tour you can see sets and costumes used in the films including The Great Hall and Weasley's bungalow. Then head outside to see external sets and attractions including Privet Drive where you can buy refreshments (you can take your own food and drink) and try the famous butterbeer, which gets a mixed reception from tour visitors! You will experience lots more including special effects and prosthetics used in the movies, a huge scale model of Hogwarts, a green screen experience and lots of photo opportunities along the way.
Touring the Harry Potter studios is a unique experience ideal for families, couples, grown ups and kids, and you don't have to be a huge Harry Potter fan to get lots out of the day. The Harry Potter tour is part-guided with other rooms and attractions where you move at your own pace. It's an unrushed tour that usually takes three to five hours, but it's your experience to enjoy your own way. Visitors post regular glowing online reviews of the Harry Potter tour with many repeat visitors (you'll want to go back!). To enhance your visit, you can obtain digital guides and souvenir guidebooks from the ticket windows at the start of the studio tour.
