Warner Bros. Studio Tour LONDON!

What happen’s when you take two over excited Harry Potter fans and put them into the Warner Bros. studio tour?

A bloody good day out that’s what.

Last week my friend Bianca and I headed up to Watford to do just that. After saying we wanted to do it for sooo long and booking these tickets months ago we were like two small children at christmas.

Warner Brothers Studio Tour

The tour started with watching a sort of intro hosted by Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. It really showed just how passionate they are about the film’s and some amazing facts about the production.

Then the doors to the great hall appeared and the room got ever so excited. We were in the great hall where so many of those iconic scenes were shot.

A tour guide stayed with us in the great hall and gave us information about what it is we were looking at such as on of Harry’s first set of robes seen below. It’s incredible to think that these are the actual costumes, props and sets they used to film in.

We then left the hall for the rest of the tour, it was at this point we were left to our own devices, which was nice. I wasn’t quite sure how the tour would work, going at my own pace suits me so much better.

Each section held surprises and brought back all the memories from the films. There is so much to see, discover and read about, I now get what people mean when they say they find something new each time they visit.

There are lots of fun interactive bits as you go round which will entertain children. If I am honest the Warner Bros. Studio Tour wouldn’t be a place I take my girls, they’re just too young. Reading facts and watching short behind the scenes clips wouldn’t interest them. Me on the other hand – I was in my element. I think 10 would be a good age to take children.

Half way through the tour you find the cafe where you can grab something to eat and enjoy a butter beer if you fancy. See my reaction to my first try of Butter beer in the video we shot of the day below.

Part two of the tour was all about special effects and behind the scenes action. It was definitely my favourite part; it’s so interesting as though you are being let in on little inside secrets. I wont give them away but I have been going around spilling my new found film making/Potter knowledge to anyone who will listen.

I feel like this post is a tad vague about our day here but the Warner Bros. Studio Tours is just one of those places you need to see for yourself whether you are a Harry Potter fan or just a huge film buff you will love it.

FYI..

The tickets for the tour cost £35 each I think thats brilliant value for money, when I was looking into it I thought they would be much more!
The tour takes on average 3 hours but you do have as much time to go at your own speed, no one is rushing you about at all, we took 3 and a half hours.
Book in early to avoid disappointment, I tried to book in for December for Hogwarts in the snow in November and it was fully booked until January.
You should not refer to it as Harry Potter Land – unless you want strange looks.
The Forbidden Forest is opening at the end of March!!!!!! I will be going back for this – watch this space.
The tour is really accessible if you do go with young children there are plenty of space for pushchairs as well as access for those in wheelchairs.

Check out the video!

    If I can get out to the UK with my daughter before she gets too much older I know she would love this. I hope we do get to get out there sometime soon. I stayed about a month in The U.K. nearly 13 years ago and I had an amazing time.
