  • 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

    2. Explore Hogwarts

  • The magic behind the magic

    3. 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

    What would a wizard be without his robes, wands, and cauldrons? These and countless other magical items from across the series are on display.

Planning Your Visit

  • 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.
