The magical highlights of the Harry Potter Studio Tour

Muggles may not be allowed inside the real Hogwarts, but Harry Potter fans will rejoice at the chance to explore the Warner Brothers Studio, where all the movies were shot. Here are five magical highlights from the Harry Potter universe that await you.

Ride the Hogwarts Express

Step aboard the real Hogwarts Express steam engine used in the films and relive Harry's magical rides to Hogwarts – just for those who know how to get to Platform 9 3/4, of course.

Explore Hogwarts

Visit the movie sets: if you always wanted to walk across the Great Hall, snoop through Dumbledore's Office, or hang out in the Gryffindor Common Room, now's your chance!

The magic behind the magic

How does Harry disappear behind the invisibility cloak? Does the Great Hall's ceiling really reflect the sky? Find out all the secrets behind the movie's magical special effects.

Meet the magical creatures

Over 200 magical creatures were created for the films. You'll get the chance to meet house elves and the Gringotts goblins, and to say hi to Hagrid's friends, Buckbeak and Aragog.

See the props and costumes

What would a wizard be without his robes, wands, and cauldrons? These and countless other magical items from across the series are on display.

Our insider tips

Make sure to get the Activity Passport

Activity Passports are available for free from the info desk by the entrance. If you're there with kids, definitely grab one as it includes fun activities such as a Golden Snitch hunt and six passport stamps to collect throughout the studio – a great souvenir to take home!

Ride the legendary double decker bus

If you're coming by public transport, take the train to Watford Junction and from there, ride the Harry Potter double decker bus to the studios. It's a more convenient way to get there than by regular transport, as it's cheap, the buses come roughly every 10 minutes, and they drop you directly at the entrance to the studios.

What people are saying about Warner Bros. Studio London

Amazing tour, worth every bit of the price!

The train ride was easy and convienent and being able to choose when to ride back via train versus being stuck to a bus timetable was game changing. The private tour was awesome. Our tour guide James was very knowledgable of all things Potter and showed us props that no one else on a regular ticket could see like Harry’s actual scar appliance and books and props that were behind the fence. The tour wasn’t long enough to see wvwerything and this is where our ability to go back through after the tour was awesome. We revisited things that we couldn’t do the first time around like riding the brooms etc. great tour! Highly recommend!

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

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.
