Platform 9 and 3/4

Head to King’s Cross, and push your cart and owl onto the platform just like Harry. Look for the queue of fellow First Years in the main departures hall.

The Great Hall

The Great Hall

The enchanted dining hall--recreated at Warner Bros. Studios--was inspired by the real dining hall at Oxford’s Christ Church College.

Hogwarts Express

Hogwarts Express

The real British steam locomotive (name: Olton Hall) is now a museum display at Warner Bros. Studios. All aboard for the 11 o'clock to Hogwarts!

Head to Leadenhall Market. At 42 Bull's Head Passage, you'll see a familiar-looking optician's shop (AKA: the entrance to The Leaky Cauldron!).

The exterior shots for the Ministry of Magic were filmed at its rather appropriate real-life counterpart: Great Scotland Yard.

Planning Your Visit

How far away from London is the Warner Bros. Studio?

Warner Bros. Studio is located 20 miles north-west from central London, in Leavesden.

How do you get to the Warner Bros. Studio?

The closest railway station is Watford Junction, a quick 20-minute train ride from London's Euston Station. There are also plenty of shuttle buses that leave from central London. Transportation to and from London is often included in a Warner Bros Studio tour, so check out all your options before you book.

Can you take a Harry Potter tour without leaving London?

The world of Harry Potter is the world of London, meaning you can do a lot of sightseeing without ever leaving the city. Take a black cab or a night bus around town, and visit the film locations for the Ministry of Magic. And, of course, you can go to Kings Cross (a real-life train station) and take photos in front of Platform 9 and ¾.

What people are saying about London

Fun, and interesting even for non-Harry-Potter fans!

I enjoyed the tour, which took us past some famous sites. I'm not a Harry Potter fan - my kids are, which is why we took this tour. But I enjoyed the walk nevertheless and learned a bit about London's history.

Fanstaic experiance and one I would highly recomend.

This is not to be missed and hands down go for the VIP experience. It was very well worth the money and was an amazing experience. The guide was super knowledgeable and they made transportation very easy. Do not miss out and go for a lesser experience. You will not be disappointed.

Very informative tour for any Harry Potter fan

Very nice tour, and our guide Tom was great. We had a sorting into houses and had quiz questions throughout, my house ravenclaw drew with gryffindor and we lost the tie breaker question. It was very fun and we will definitely book another tour to do.

Best way to explore London & satisfy Harry Potter fans

Tom did an awesome job ferrying the group across many points of interest, providing entertaining details, keeping momentum going through a house competition and including two underground adventures. Well done!!

Excellent attraction, must see for any Harry Potter fans

We were picked up a little later than expected from Kings Cross, but this was due to heavy traffic not the fault of the tour company. We were called onto the bus in turn and the tickets for the Studio Tour handed out as we boarded, this felt very smooth and well done. During our journey we watched the first half of a Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets, this made the journey more enjoyable particularly for my two children. The tour itself was fantastic, there were lots of knowledgeable guides to help out and give information. It was very busy, but we had enough time to fully explore the whole attraction, we did not feel rushed, this included a stop for lunch and butterbeer. There are a few opportunities for photos against the green screens,though these are not cheap. There are a few shops through the tour and a large gift shop at the end, these are not cheap but there is Something for everyone. The trip back on the bus showed the second half of the film. Excellent trip
