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!

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 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

Amazing service willing to go the extra mile to make us happy.

We arrived late from a connecting flight and the driver was able to accommodate our bags and modify the travel schedule. We were fortunate enough to be able to coordinate this with the company ahead of time, and were reassured by their flexibility and willingness to please. We would definitely use this company again in the future! The studio tour was amazing and we will remember it for years to come.

Loved Harry Potter Studios but didn’t use the private transfer

We booked these tickets as missed out getting them direct from HP Studios. As we had a car we didn’t use/need the private transfer and glad we didn’t as we spent over 5 hours at HP studios so leaving after 3 hrs would have been a pain. We all loved HP Studios and would definitely recommend visiting even if your not a big fan. It certainly makes you appreciate the effort and details that went into making all the films.

our absolut highlight... the kids loved it...

We had a great time with our guide... George was brilliant, funny and he knew some real secrets about London ;) It was quiet a long walk but it was worth it!!! Absolutely! I can strongly recommend this tour. Even if you are not a Harry Potter fan...
