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

Devoted tour guide, excellent experience!

Tom is a really devoted tour guide. You will be surprised to walk through alleys that resemble Knockturn Alley, and many other wonderful places you may miss without a guide! You'll certainly be thrilled if you are a real Harry Potter fan. Before the tour, reread the books again to make sure your house wins!

Make the trip to Leavesden much easier and more comfortable

The coach service made the trip so much easier to the studio. If you travel by yourself plus the studio ticket, the total cost would almost be the same with the this guide (maybe less than 10% different). The bus driver Mark is really a thoughtful and kind person. He explained the information we need to know in a good manner before arriving at the studio. We had about 3.5 hours in the studio, which is quite enough. If you are a Harry Potter fan, this guide really makes you recall all of your childhood memories!

A great tour full of Harry Potter and history!

George was a wonderful tour guide! He has a great personality, is very knowledgeable about both Harry Potter and the history of London, and made this a great experience. I highly recommend this tour for all Harry Potter fans!

Amazing look behind the scenes, every room and every prop a highlight!

You can feel the care and love which was spend into creating every main attraction and every detail of the movies. That same care and love to detail is every present during the whole tour. I was there 4 hours with my 12 year old. Needles to say we were great fans of the books and the movies before, but having the chance to see everything for real was just breathtaking. Totally recommended for a special family-trip. Keep up the magic! Thanks so much to all team behind the scenes for an unforgettable day!

We had two real nice guides! The tour was very interesting

Our two guides were really nice. Josh, who picked us up at the station and was very friendly and funny and Erin, who guided us through the Studios and was extremely knowledgable about Harry Potter, giving us lots of inside information. Well done and thank you guys!
