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

Fantastic 2nd experience - great idea to add the forbidden forest! :-D

This is a must see for any Harry Potter fan. It is a magnificient experience that is so treasure trove for all of us who have seen the movies over and over again - and you will most probably go home and watch them all one more time now that you know how the movies were made

Driver dropped us off very far from our starting point

Driver did not return us to Original London Visitos Center. Instead we walked for over half an hour and missed our next attraction.

Enjoyably fun and the tour guide kept it all interesting

The only negative was the bus back to Euston Station was at the driver’s change over and we stood in the wind and cold for 45 mins waiting to board a bus when we could see one bus parked in the carpark and when the next bus arrived, the driver would not let us board for 15mins when the queue was back to the Entrance

It was really awesome the Tour, Thanks a lot to Tom for this guide

Tom is really a great guide, The way he explains everything is really good. Even for people who don't understand much english could understand him very nice as per his way to explain and express is very nice. Thanks a lot to him we enjoyed a lot walking around the streets of London and get to see streets which a normally the tourist don't go to.

Stunning tour and an easy way of traveling

We waited at the given meeting point. Our driver was on time and brought us safely to the studios and back to London. The tour itself was great even so the studio was very crowded. The only negative aspect was the timeframe. We had three hours to discover everything which is very tied.
