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

Easy and convenient transportation to a fantastic tour!

Pick up location was easy & convenient to reach. With private transportation, we didn't need to wait to meet up with other people, though there were others waiting at the same location. GetYourGuide had someone there to coordinate & give status on your car's arrival, which was nice. The Harry Potter Studio tour was everything we imagined and more! My kids loved seeing all the familiar sets, props, and costumes. There was nice balance of displays and interactive demonstrations. We also loved seeing the evolution of the sets, from initial drawings, to paintings, to paper models, to scale production. We just would have liked a map of the tour, so we could better manage our timing walking through.

Best attraction we have been to, fabulous!

We booked this because we love Harry Potter and it was our Granson’s fifteenth birthday. He said it was the best birthday he has ever had. We enjoyed every minute. The transport was brilliant, we booked private transfer and the driver was excellent. The studio is well organised and stunning scenery and effects to amaze everyone. Ten out of ten.

Great experience, great service for disabled visitors

I was very happy with the overall service I received, from the possibility to not used the transportation from and to London, to the easiness of retrieving the tickets, and especially the service provided to my dad who needs a wheelchair. The studios themselves are also amazing, an average brilliant experience!

Excellent day trip. Well organised thank you.

Easy trip up and back in double decker bus watching Harry Potter on TV. Well organised and on time both ways. Clear with instructions. Highly recommended.

The overall trip was fantastic, however the guide was 30 mins late

The overall experience was exciting and enjoyable, however the guide was 30 minutes late arriving to begin the tour which had all the customers waiting and feeling very anxious, although she arrived and apologized numerous times for her late arrival, I felt it affected the amount of time we had to spend at the studio and felt this part of the trip ended up being quite rushed and felt under pressure to move quickly from one area to the next to ensure we were able to see the whole studio. I would have liked more time to be able to take my time to enjoy all the amazing things at the studio.
