Your day trip to the Warner Bros Studio Tour London begins with departure from either Victoria / Baker Street or Kings Cross for the 60 minute drive to Leavesden in Hertfordshire, where the studio is located. This tour is ideal for fans of Harry Potter. Step off your Warner Bros transportation and head inside the studio tour to immerse yourself into the world of Harry Potter. The Warner Bros Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter allows you to walk around the studio independently and see the actual sets used in the Harry Potter movies, including the Great Hall and the Hogwarts office.
Check out the storefronts of Ollivanders wand shop, Gringotts Wizarding Bank, Flourish and Blotts, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, and Eeylops Owl Emporium as you explore Diagon Alley, pretending that Harry, Hermione and Ron are walking alongside you. Learn about the magical special effects and makeup artistry that helped bring spells and much-loved characters like Dobby to the screen, and see the actual costumes and props used by the actors themselves.
Throughout the Warner Bros Studio Tour London, there will be photo opportunities aplenty so make sure you bring your camera.
Your studio experience includes Platform 9 ¾, where you can get an intimate up-close view of the original Hogwarts Express train, whose 78-year-old engine billows steam.
You will also get to explore the interior of Gringotts Wizarding Bank and have a photo opportunity inside the Lestrange vault.
Following all the excitement of your tour of the magic of moviemaking, you will then be taken back to where you departed from in central London to finish your magical day.
Special Events for 2022
Saturday 22nd January – Sunday 1st May 2022
You will discover how the magical moments from the films were brought to the screen. The Great Hall will be dressed for a Weasley prank on the peaceful O.W.L.s exam, complete with the swinging pendulum under the watchful eye of Dolores Umbridge, with her pink two-piece costume also taking centre stage. Also, look above to see the playful Weasley twins’ costumes on their broomsticks suspended from the Great Hall ceiling.
See how clever camera trickery created the disappearing effect of the invisibility cloak and make your own origami howler, just like the one Mrs Weasley delivered. Learn how the infamous fireplace letter scene inside 4 Privet was created. Eagle-eyed visitors will spot a number of pesky Cornish Pixies on the loose around the Studio Tour and collect stamps as part of your Marauder’s Map activity passport.
Friday 23rd September – Sunday 6th November
The Dark Arts feature will return for Hallowe’en in 2022 with the Great Hall ceiling decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins as well as a spooky feast of lollipops and red apples dressed along the tables. Follow the Dark Mark trail, try their wand combat moves against Death Eaters in a live duel as they storm the Studio Tour, all before walking down a darker Platform 9 ¾ and a spookier Diagon Alley.
