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

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

Amazing experience - great value for money!

Brilliant experience from start to finish. Tour guide (Rob) provided us with an amazing and seamless journey from Harry Potter to Oxford.

Perfect blend of London tourism for all Harry Potter enthusiasts!

Fun, informational and full of sights of London that you would want to see while visiting. Tour guide was organized and showed video Clips of the HP movies at the locations we stopped at. Perfect length of time. A lot of walking but anyone could do it! There is time to rest at each “stop”. You won’t want it to end - but you will be extremely satisfied with this tour! So glad we did it!

Great value for money and a great tour, worth a visit!

We booked it as a last minute tour, didn't really know what to expect but wow what a great saturday afternoon. Tom was our tour guide and he showed us around with great enthusiasm and knowledge. He really knows his stuff! Dont be put off by the two and a half hour walk if thats whats stopping you, it was really enjoyable and went by at a leisurely pace. Being able to stop and take photos without just rushing ahead was great! Well worth it for the price, very pleased with our tour.

It was a wonderful tour that we absolutely loved.

The tour was amazing. The tour guide named Lauren was very nice and spoke very clearly. She was so sweet with the kids, made it a truly sensational tour.

Overall easy with the transportation - studio tour was excellent

Overall this was a good deal and worth it. It was low hassle. The pick-up location isn't super practical and there seemed to be only one option. They had two coaches so if you get there a little early maybe you could be in the first group to go. Mobile tickets worked great. In any case, we were in the second one so went 10 or 15 mins later. The only real complaint I had was that they don't tell you they stop to pick up others at a hotel on the way. As it's in London it added a full 30 mins to the trip. And it was only a couple people so it was annoying... why didn't they also need to meet at the same place we did? Once underway it went quite quickly. Wifi in the coach was occasionally spotty but on most of the time. The studio tour itself is outstanding. They allowed about 30 minutes more than what I wanted for everyone to be back (4.5 hours). But OK... and return was smooth. We got off at that first stop on the return. Would do it again - overall well organized and smooth. Thanks!
