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

What people are saying about Warner Bros. Studio London
This is a long day and while you can spend a whole day (or two!) at either Oxford or Harry Potter studios, there is enough time on this trip to enjoy both (being somewhat mindful of the time). We had a great tour guide in Oxford, local man who I believe studied/studies there; he gave recommendations & local flavor. Had enough time for lunch at Turf Tavern and some quick shopping. Harry Potter studio is massive and one can easily schedule a whole day for it. We had about 4 hours. I'm a massive fan and was accompanied by a casual one. We ideally would have liked about 30-45 minutes longer to not feel at all rushed but again, still plenty of time to wait in line for pictures on a broomstick, Hogwarts Express, etc if everything else is kept at a decent pace. Unfortunately, the bus does not have outlets, wifi or a bathroom. However, the driver does stop at the facilities en route. Overall, I rate this a 9/10 (slightly longer at Harry Potter maybe, upgraded bus) but would recommend!
I attended the trip with my 13 years old daughter. We both liked the trip so much. It was easy to travel with the bus and the guide, who told us Oxford's history on the way there. The bus driver was also so nice and funny! In Oxford we divided into two groups and our guide was the most fantastic lady called Debbie. She told us interesting stories about the university, studying there and of course Harry Potter connections. At the studios we had 4 hours to explore it by ourselves. I can recommend this trip to everyone, who is willing to pay a little extra for a convenient bus travelling and to know a little more about Oxford.
This was a terrific tour. Be sure to get your tickets early as they sell out, and there are very limited entry to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter behind the scenes experience. I can't tell you how many times we heard in London that people tried to get tickets but it was sold out. I loved how this was a self-guided tour, because it allowed my daughter and me to take our time and focus on the things that interested us most. The bus left on time and was very comfortable and they gave us more than enough time to see the entire attraction, eat and shop. I highly recommend this tour!
My kids (11 and 14) are big Harry Potter fans. This was a great tour and it was fascinating to see how they made the movie. My husband and I are not huge fans but we still enjoyed the tour. We visited in July and it was quite warm on the bus for the first 45 min. They show a Harry Potter movie on the bus which entertains the kids (and adults). The facility is huge and there is a lot to see. If you enjoy Harry Potter and are interested in the behind the scenes of movie making, this tour is for you. It is highly recommended.
I would 100% go back to Harry Potter, but would not book with a tour as they don't leave enough time to get the full experience, go on your own and leave on your own, it's not hard to get there. They only give you about 4 hours to see it with a tour that picks you up and dops you off and I ended up missing the bus and luckily got on the second (not everyone will) but I could have used at least two more hours there than they alloted us.
