Full description

Take a day trip from London and journey towards Warner Bros. Studio to take "The Making of Harry Potter" tour. Located in former aircraft hangars in Leavesden, the attraction recreates the magic of Harry Potter and all your favorite characters. Then, visit Oxford and explore the Divinity School.

Board the original "Hogwarts Express" train at a recreation of Platform 9¾, and explore the inside of the train carriage featured in the films. Take a selfie with a luggage trolley as it disappears through the station's brick wall.

The studio staff will reveal the behind-the-scenes secrets and unveil the intricate prosthetics and make-up that transformed actors into creatures in blockbuster films. See sets from the original movies, and get a peek inside the college of Hogwarts during the 4-hour studio tour. Journey through attractions such as The Great Hall, Gryffindor Common, Hagrid's Hut, the Weasleys' kitchen, and the Ministry of Magic. Take a tour of the backlot and a special effects tour, see a model of Hogwarts Castle, and much more. Depart the Studios and journey to Oxford to explore the real college buildings, including the medieval Divinity School. Upon arrival in the university city founded in 1167, take a guided tour of the historical center and admire some of the most famous college buildings, cloisters, and quadrangles. Delve down alleyways and into chapels, look inside dining halls and across cobblestone squares under the shadows of the legendary "dreaming spires." Enter the hallowed heartland of academia, including the Bodleian Library, Radcliff Camera, Sheldonian Theatre, and other select colleges.

Excellent service. Was really pleased. One side note though, make sure that guest understands and respects the time schedule. We had to wait for about 20 minutes at the parking lot for some guess who did not respect the departure time. Then, when we eventually left to go to the next sight, we then had to drive back an extra 15 minutes(one way) to go back and pick up the same guests who did not comply with the agreed departure time.

It was a fantastic tour. Only complaint I have was the bus was late for pick up and it broke down at Harry Potter so we were a little delayed going to Oxford. However our driver and guide were amazing and he jump started the bus with the help of a few other drivers

We did the tour with Valentina and tony and don’t regret it! She has a great energy and don’t lost it throughout the day. Everything is explaining in a very clear way so everyone can understand. We got to spend 4h at the studio, which is ok but we had to run a bit at the end to join the bus almost on time to go to our next stop Oxford. (If you’re interested buying sth, you need to save at least 30 min for the gift shop at the end of the tour) The bus is comfortable with electrical outlet. Thank you for this magical day, we won’t forget it!
