HARRY POTTER STUDIO TOUR



Hey Guys! Last weekend I went on a trip to Watford with a group of friends to go and visit the Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour! I had been wanting to go here since I moved to London so I was so excited. I took pictures of everything that I could, enjoy!






We all took the trip from Highbury & Islington in North London to Watford Junction. It took about 2 hours but it went very quickly. When we arrived at the station we had to take the special bus to Warner Bros Studios. On the bus they showed a small film, teaching us about the history of the studios and to get us pumped up for the tour.






When we got into the building we were greeted with three hand casts of the main characters. Daniel's and Rubert's were way too big for me, but Emma's tiny hands where a perfect fit.

We started the tour and was shown a short video and shown to the doors of the great hall, after a small intro off one of the staff members we entered, it was just as magical as in the movies. We got to take as many pictures as we wanted and to explore the clothes around us that were all worn by the actual actors.

As we walked around the first part of the tour we got to see the Gryfifndor common room, Dumbledore's office, The Burrow, the Potions classroom and much more. It was great to watch all of the small videos next to the sets which explain more about the sets and how they were designed.







After leaving the first half of the tour we entered the Cafe that served lots of food and of course, Butter beer. We all sat down to have a snack and to enjoy a huge cup of the wonderful drink that tastes like fizzy Weathers Originals, a classic British sweet! Some people like it and some don't. I could live off the stuff!






The last part of the tour although the shortest was definitely the best for me, it showed how much talent went into making Harry Potter, and it showed the people who's name's weren't at the top of the credits in there true light, geniuses.

This part of the tour contains the replica of Hogwarts Castle which they used to do a lot of the effects with, screens were placed all around to let people see where this sculpture was used within the film and it was amazing. I have played a lot of the video games for Harry Potter and it was like being transported into this, it was truly amazing.








We we came out of the tour we came into the gift shop which was decorated in every way that you can imagine. I wanted to buy everything there. My favourite things to look at was the sweets and the decorations, I am defiantly going to save up for some of this stuff as it is amazing.

In conclusion I loved the tour, my ticket was £33 which seems costly but as a huge Harry Potter fan it is 100% worth it and you will not regret getting a ticket. I am going to recommend everyone I know to go to this as it is such and amazing gift to be able to see the sets that you grew up watching and to enter a world that you dreamed of entering since you was eight years old. As you can tell I am a huge Harry Potter fan.
