Your journey will start in Central London, where you will meet your City Wonders representative. They will give you return train tickets directly to Watford Junction Station. From there, your experience begins with a short ride on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London branded shuttle bus. With free Wi-fi and Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone™ playing on board, you'll be well entertained throughout the journey. Enjoy timed access and a greeting from a dedicated Studio Tour guide, who will reveal the wonders you will encounter throughout your tour of the original sets, props, and costumes from all eight of the Harry Potter films. You will be given an audio headset to ensure you do not miss any of the fascinating behind-the-scenes facts. Once your guided tour comes to an end, you can choose to re-enter the Studio Tour and ride a broomstick over London in the green screen experience, or even spend some time discovering the full range of Harry Potter merchandise in the Studio Shop!
Your unforgettable experience will start with a short film in the cinema before entering the iconic Great Hall set where your guided tour will begin. Your Studio Tour guide will share production secrets and inside information, as well as highlighting the processes used to bring the films to life. This experience is completely unique and the best way to explore the behind-the-scenes magic of the Harry Potter series. Take a look inside Dumbledore’s office and walk along the famous cobbled street of Diagon Alley, featuring the shop fronts of Ollivanders, Flourish and Blotts, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, Gringotts Bank and Eeylops Owl Emporium.
Visit the original Hogwarts Express locomotive and a recreation of Platform 9 ¾. Climb aboard the train’s carriage and pose for a photo with a luggage trolley as it disappears through the platform wall. Enjoy other memorable sets from the Harry Potter film series, including the Gryffindor common room, the boys’ dormitory, Hagrid’s Hut, the Potions classroom and Professor Umbridge's office at the Ministry of Magic – all while being captivated by the secrets and insights shared by your guide.
