The magical highlights of the Harry Potter Studio Tour

Muggles may not be allowed inside the real Hogwarts, but Harry Potter fans will rejoice at the chance to explore the Warner Brothers Studio, where all the movies were shot. Here are five magical highlights from the Harry Potter universe that await you.

Ride the Hogwarts Express
Step aboard the real Hogwarts Express steam engine used in the films and relive Harry’s magical rides to Hogwarts – just for those who know how to get to Platform 9 3/4, of course.

Explore Hogwarts
Visit the movie sets: if you always wanted to walk across the Great Hall, snoop through Dumbledore’s Office, or hang out in the Gryffindor Common Room, now’s your chance!

The magic behind the magic
How does Harry disappear behind the invisibility cloak? Does the Great Hall’s ceiling really reflect the sky? Find out all the secrets behind the movie’s magical special effects.

Meet the magical creatures
Over 200 magical creatures were created for the films. You’ll get the chance to meet house-elves and the Gringotts goblins and to say hi to Hagrid’s friends, Buckbeak and Aragog.

Insider tips

Make sure to get the Activity Passport

Activity Passports are available for free from the info desk by the entrance. If you’re there with kids, definitely grab one as it includes fun activities such as a Golden Snitch hunt and six passport stamps to collect throughout the studio – a great souvenir to take home!

Ride the legendary double decker bus

If you’re coming by public transport, take the train to Watford Junction and from there, ride the Harry Potter double decker bus to the studios. It’s a more convenient way to get there than by regular transport, as it’s cheap, the buses come roughly every 10 minutes, and they drop you directly at the entrance to the studios.

Good to know

When should I visit?

9AM – 10PM daily.

How to get there

After getting the train to Watford Junction, you can take the Harry Potter double decker bus.

Is it expensive?

Ticket prices vary.

Will I need a guide?

Handheld digital guides are available onsite for £4.95. For more details, please speak to staff at the collection point in the Studio Tour Lobby.

What people are saying about Warner Bros. Studio London

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Excellent service! I would use again tomorrow.
Great service. My girlfriend and I got our ticket to the Harry Potter world, and transport back and forth with plenty of time to spare to take our time on the tour and have lunch before transfer back to London. Can not recommend enough having been suspect at it being too good to be true when booking.

Harry Potter: Warner Bros. Studio Tour with Transfer reviewed by Dr. Thomas

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Very good! A must-do for all Harry Potter fans!
Very very good! We loved every bit of it! The only thing not so good was the time. We felt like er had to hurry up all day. Left us with no time at all in the shop. That is bad for business guys! Kids got stressed finding things to take back home. Being able to book your preferred terurntrip might be an idea.
