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

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!

The Leaky Cauldron

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 Ministry of Magic

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

Very well led, entertaining and informative.

Tom was a lovely guide and made the tour fun and informative on what was an extremely hot day!

George was the best!!! Almost like walking with George Weasley!

I recommend the Muggle walking tour with George. He is knowledgeable, funny and interesting. He brings both the history of London and the wonder of Harry Potter to life! Valerie from California

Wonderful introduction to London for Harry Potter fans!

We had a great time with our tour guide, Gina! She was very knowledgeable and fun. Loved the tour!

Great guys, good Time.. totally worth it

the tour was absolutely lovely. Our guides were two authentic and friendly british blokes who really knew what they were talking about. They will show you around central London and you will learn quite a lot about the places that inspired J.K.Rowling and the world of Harry Potter.

Alles super aber nächstes Mal buche ich früher dann ist es günstiger..

Thank you to the guide at the meeting place Starbucks! He managed all for us and was very very nice!!! Thank you so much, we had a wonderful day because of you!!! And thank you to our driver, he drove us to Harry Potter in only 45 Minutes, so we had more time for the Studio-Tour and he helped us getting our flight at Heathrow!! Thank you very much from Germany!!!
