Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter

Tripoto

The Studio Tour is located 20 miles north-west of London and regular shuttle buses run from Watford Junction to the Studio Tour with a journey time of around 15 minutes (tickets cost 2.50 GBP). Buses run every 20 minutes from 9.20am. So all you have to do is reach Watford Junction by train or tube.

The very first poster of Sirius Black that greets your eyes! The tour costs around 45 GBP which is roughly 4500 INR. There are no time limits once you are inside the studio, but try to book morning slots as they will give you much time to wander around.

The entrance to the studio is lined up with the Marauder's Map and some of the most famous quotes from the books and the movies

Make sure to take some quick photos here as the next group would be waiting to enter the Great Hall. But do not miss the uniforms of all the houses kept on display

Can you believe? They only built one staircase and used CGI to show us the 100s of the staircases. In complete awe by now!

Any guesses who would have such a beautiful sewed quilt? I can see a R there on the trunk! Mrs. Weasely was always good at such stuff (remember her famous jumpers?)

After the general studio tour, you enter the Forbidden Forest tour (included in your ticket already) where you see a spectacle of the magical creatures. I would not post and ruin that for you as that is one of the most jaw dropping, scary forest experience!

The next section is the Platform 9 3/4ths where you can board the train and click pictures pushing your trolley

I had to do this right!

With most of the tour over, it was time to have some food and BUTTERBEER! Believe me, this is the best thing I have ever tasted and its nothing like beer. Kids will love it and adults will love it as well. Priced at 7 GBP (700 INR), one might think its a bit expensive, but its worth it.

The next section is situated outdoors with the sets of Pivet Drive House No. 4 and James and Lily's destroyed house.

Inside the Pivet Drive, other than this stunning storm of the letters, you can see Harry's cupboard under the stairs. Keep an eye out for the very, very interesting certificates that have been won by Dudley (like finishing his lunch always) and displayed proudly by the Dursleys in their hallway.

Its time to visit the Diagon Alley now! If you are visiting after May 2019, there has been a recent opening of Gringott's Wizarding Bank as well - right opposite the Diagon Alley. Think I have to plan one more trip!

Wasn't this shop the best??

Look closely and you can see the Weasley's Puking Pastilles! They can get you out of a boring lecture pretty quickly.

So much attention has been paid to the details. You will respect film - making at a completely different level now.

The castle has been built from scratch and you can have a look at it from all the corners. No words for this.

Wands signed by each cast and crew member. Try to spot your favourite character before your friends find theirs! This brings us to the end of our tour. Make sure you wear shoes or your legs will give away by evening. Try to book as early as possible as tickets are sold out months before.
