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

3 Adult daughters grew up with Harry Potter....dream come true!

Truly a highlight of our vacation...sent our 29, 25 and 20 year-old daughters off to enjoy. Having grown up and still addicted to Harry Potter, they were in awe of it daughter took over 300 pictures! Pricey, but similar to paying for a Disney experience. Driver wonderful and on time. Had ample time to view it all and spend time (and lots of money) in the gift shop.

It is a wonderful experiment to visit Harry Potter Studios !!!!!

We spent a great day in Harry Potter Studios!!! The private transportation is a real plus!!

Great tour to book if the online tickets are sold out

We planned out trip to London and realized the tickets to the studio tour were sold out. The direct tickets need to be booked weeks in advance. GetYourGuide had a package available on the dates we needed which included private round trip car service and the studio tickets. The package cost much more than the WB online site but since our options were limited, we booked the trip. The car service made transportation very easy and gave us plenty of time to explore the studios. Our driver, Ali was early and very professional. This is a great package if you find yourself without tickets and can afford the after market rate.

Harry Potter Studios & Private Transfer from Central London Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 08/20/2017

Engaging, brilliant and utterly entertaining - Best pub crawl ever!

My friend and I had a fantastic time on this tour! We met with our guide at the designated spot, and even though we were told that it was in fact just the two of us who had booked that night's tour they still went through with it! Our guide, Ben, was super friendly and engaging, a wonderful storyteller, and had heaps of fun trivia and tidbits to share with us - we had an absolute blast with him (and we hope he had fun too, putting up with just us two Danes)! If you're a Potter fan we'd definitely recommend booking this tour - it was the perfect way to end our trip to London! I'm definitely booking this tour again next time I visit the city!

Bringing to life the Harry Potter movies...the best!

This was a highlight of our first trip to the U.K. We are fans of Harry Potter and seeing the actual sets from the movies was amazing. Can't see the movies the same way. Our private car transportation was very professional and easy. Highly recommend!
