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

Great tour! We would do it again! Very impressive!

It was a great tour! Definitely recommendable! The transfer worked well and the driver was friendly and flexibly concerning picking us up. Each of us four was impressed and happy! But print your tickets! Unfortunately pur tickets weren't accepted on the smartphone. But fortunately we could print it at the studios. All in all it was a great tour! Thank you!

One of the best parts of our London trip!

Guide to studios, Ryan, was organized and friendly. The studio guide, Carmen, was a true expert and made our experience one of the best parts of our London trip. We were truly awestruck as first time visitors! The free time afterwards was an added boon to go into details in the parts we wanted to look at more closely, and take more photos. The cafe near the front had opened for the first time on our visit, and my daughter said it was the best hot chocolate she’s had in a long time! My mocha wasn’t too shabby either! Shout out to Callum making the drinks! We can strongly recommend this tour for Harry Potter fans, or movie fans in general. We can’t wait to go back with our other daughters!

Our guide Nathaly was awesome, very enthusiastic and entertaining !

I definitely recommand this activity ! That is the funniest way to discover London.

Warner Brothers Tour was wonderful but Golden Tours is not good

The WB tour itself was wonderful, fun, and educational. I cannot say the same for Golden Tours. When we were in London we had four tours booked. By mistake we arrived for the 8:00 WB tour and our tour was later in the afternoon. The gentleman loading the bus for the 8:00 WB tour said they had space but I need to check with the office. The office said we could not go early because WB had our name on the list for later. I found out later at WB they have no ones name and don't care as long as you have a ticket. During the later morning my wife became ill. She insisted I go anyway. When I arrived at Golden Tours office I explained my situation and was told they could not change the tour because all the tours for the days we had left in London were full. I went on the tour and had a great time. When I returned to the hotel I checked and they had space on 3 of the four days we had left. Two chances to help with no results. I will not use Golden Tours again and do not recommend them.
