A Review....Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour London.
Hey lovelies :)
Now way back in January 2012, I was lucky enough to book some tickets to go to the Harry Potter Studio's!
I booked the tickets for 4th July 2012, and wow, what an incredible day!
I unfortunately cannot like Harry Potter. I think JK Rowling writes incredible books, I think the films are made brilliantly, and I think all the actors within the movies are outstanding, just unfortunately it is not something I can like...and I really wish I could.
So without really reading any of the books, and with only seeing the first film, off I went.
I went with my Mum and sister (two huge Harry Potter fans) and I had just an amazing day, I feel like I can't even translate it into words on here how much I enjoyed it!
- Well all your general information can be found here at their website: www.wbstudiotour.co.uk
- The car park is huge, you will have no issue at finding a spot to park.
- The whole tour is flat apart from one occasion where it is a tad up hill but even though it is a slight incline, it is still a smooth one!
- It is easily accessible for children, wheelchair users, adults, people who cannot stand for long, there are plenty of seats dotted around.
- You don't walk around with a tour guide the whole time. They take you into the first room, and then you are left to do your own thing. There are tour guides however throughout the whole tour who are more than happy to tell you anything you want to know...and trust me there is nothing they do not know. Their knowledge is incredible!
- The tickets cost between £21.50-£29 for 5 year olds to adults. All ticketing information and prices are at this webpage.
- There are toilets within the tour.
- You can go around it completely at your own pace, there is no time limit in the sections.
- It was suggested to take 3 hours to complete the tour if you really go slowly around it. We were in it for 5 hours, and we didn't go slowly, we just absorbed everything. It really is a well worth your money trip.
- It is situated north of London.
- There are plenty of opportunities to take videos and photographs all the way through, I think I took just over 500!
Well as I am sure you can probably guess by now, I cannot suggest you go here enough!
- If you like Harry Potter, if you don't, if you are interested in how films are put together or if you just want to have a taste of butter beer...there will be something here for you!
- As I said earlier, I just can't like it, and therefore I don't know too much about the characters and films, but I just loved it, I would go back in a second, and I didn't want to leave!
- The gift shop is fully stocked with all things Harry Potter, wands, sweets, postcards, cloaks, glasses...you name it, it will have it. But do ensure you save your money up, because it really is not a cheap gift shop!
- Ensure you save your camera battery up and have enough room on your memory cards as you will be astounded by how many photographs you end up taking!
- Yes, it costs a lot, but the cost is very much reflected by what you are getting when you go. You learn so many secrets of the films. You see real sets, costumes, you are actually in the rooms where they recorded the movies! You will be so surprised and amazed by things you see.
- It was a fantastic day out which nearly a year on we all still speak about!
- It was easy to get to, very quick link from the motorway and we are not familiar of the area at all!
I will post some (LOADS) of my pictures underneath my writing now, so if you don't want to see anything or have any spoilers then look away! I have tried to keep them so they don't reveal too much!
Let me know if you intend to go here or if you have already been?!
I would love to hear your experiences of it!
Thanks for reading,
Until the next time,
