1) Visit Harry Potter - Warner Bros Studios

  • Do you want to ride a flying broom and play a game of Quidditch?

Explore the Warner Bros. Studios of Harry Potter - The Making of Harry Potter or the behind the scenes of harry potter (yes, it is a bit longer to pronounce than to throw a good Expecto Patronum…).

You don't have to be a Harry Potter fan to appreciate the Harry Potter Studios Tour in London; the parents who accompany their little sorcerer's apprentices also find their story there. It really is a great visit.

2) What to visit in the Harry Potter studios in London

  • Behind the scenes at Harry Potter studios

The visit allows you to understand the behind the scenes of the film. We discovered the great hall, Dumbledore's office, the Gryffindor common room, the children's bedrooms, Hagrid's cabin, the potions classrooms, from Professor Umbridge to the Minister for Magic.


The field is filled with iconic accessories that are sure to catch the eye of fans, like Harry's Nimbus 2000 and Hagrid's motorcycle. We really have the feeling of accessing the secrets of the shoot.

/! Tips during your visit to the Harry Potter studio

  • To take photos, I advise you to do the first session in the morning. Then it will be enough to drag your feet behind the group a little to believe that you are alone and take the photos you want.
  • Enjoy each of the rooms during your visit because you will not be able to return.
  • In general, the tour lasts three hours, so it is best to avoid visiting it in the late afternoon.
  • Audio guides are available at the entrance for £ 4,50. Of course, that adds to the budget, but it does have some interesting anecdotes.

  • New exhibition: The forbidden forest

Follow in the footsteps of Ron, Hermione, and Harry and enter a place forbidden to Hogwarts students. See life-size models of Aragog and Buck the Hippogriff, as well as one of Hagrid's original costumes.

Surrounded by trees over three meters in diameter, visitors can check the weather using the same techniques as the filmmakers.

  • Shop

Plan a specific budget for the store… It costs around € 30 for a Dobby plush, € 80 for a sweater, € 35 for a wand. There are also board games, books, magic cloaks, cups, etc. The store is quite impressive, Harry is not willing to do the manga.

  • The study of coffee

The cafe offers freshly made sandwiches, a full selection of coffees, hot and cold drinks, and more. Try the buttery beer, but be careful, it's quite disgusting; better to take only one to several if you come with friends.

  • Here's how to buy your Harry Potter tickets:

First, you must buy your tickets online (with roundtrip transport) or (also with transport) if there is no more space or go to the official website.

 

Once the purchase is made on the site, you will receive an email (so be sure to enter your email address) confirming your entries.

3) Join the Harry Potter studios

  • How to get to the studios with the porter transfer (Golden Tour bus)

To get to the studios, there is no Hogwarts Express, but rather a Golden Tour bus that departs from Victoria, Baker Street and most recently Paddington and Saint Pancras stations, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays only at 9am

On the other hand, only the one at the Saint Pancras metro station (in addition to being at the Eurostar exit), allows you to visit the famous platform 9 ¾ for a little extra magic (avoid rush hours) before going to the studios out of London.

Avoid going through it anyway, you risk being stopped suddenly ...

A visit to the Harry Potter studios in London with the bus ride included costs almost € 78 for over 16s, € 72 for children aged 5 to 15, € 22 for children aged 3 to 5, free for children under 3 years.

  • Reach Harry Potter Studios from Victoria Station

I found 3 tickets from Victoria station, it's up to you to compare prices, schedules and availability. Ticket 1, Ticket 2 and Ticket 3 for Harry Potter Studios with transportation from Victoria Station.

  • Get to Harry Potter Studios from King's Cross Station or St Pancras Station (it's the same)

Here's the Harry Potter ticket with transportation from King's Cross Station (St Pancras Station).

A family rate is offered for two adults and two children from 5 to 15 years old from € 289 (you barely earn € 10, their offer is not very good but you know it).

  • How to get to Harry Potter Studios from Luton Airport:

If you are arriving from Luton Airport (where many low cost flights arrive), you can take the National Express to Hemel Hempstead and then the 318 bus.

Anyway, if you are worried about getting lost, ask at the information points (at Luton airport) how to get there harry potter studios, you'll see, they are used to it… It will cost you about 10 euros.

The other airports are too far away to attempt a trip by public transport (or by taxi, don't even think about it). You will need to get to London first and then to the stations mentioned above.

  • Get to Harry Potter Studios by tube (London Overground company tube, a rail transport network)

The tube (tube) certainly will not take you directly to the studios, but it will be essential to discover London or to reach one of the starting points of the Golden Tour bus. I gave you a little earlier in the article, the departure stations of the Golden Tour Bus.

The road still takes almost two hours and the buses leave every hour.

So if you want to get there by tube from London you have to join London Euston station to get to Watford Junction station, then take the shuttle to harry potter studios.

  • to expand GoogleMap - Get to Harry Potter Studios by metro:

/! Trick :

To avoid paying for the bus, you can also decide to go to your studies on your own. Since I am super nice and have spent an hour searching the site, you will find individual non-package seats on the Warner Bros. site (here) only, not the Studio Tour site.

It will cost you £ 39 for the tour alone, to which you can add a little over € 10 on the return journey, taking the tube (from Euston tube station, for example) to Watford Junction (be careful, avoid the train , which costs much, much more), where a shuttle with the image of the little wizard will take you directly to Leavesden Studios for little money.

Important: : Take your tickets online, they obviously don't sell tickets on the site.

  • Here's how to buy your Harry Potter tickets:

First of all, you must buy your tickets online, here without transport or here with transport.

I found 3 tickets from Victoria station, it's up to you to compare prices, schedules and availability. Ticket 1, Ticket 2 and Ticket 3 for Harry Potter Studios with transportation from Victoria Station.

Here's the Harry Potter ticket with transportation from King's Cross Station (Saint Pancras Station).

5) where to sleep near the Harry Potter studios

  • Where to stay near Harry Potter studios in London

Unless you're driving and planning a post-visit road trip, or want to stay in the area and avoid London, I don't necessarily see the point in sleeping near the Harry Potter studios. However, if this is the case, some hotels in the surrounding area offer great savings compared to the British capital, known for its prohibitive prices.

For example, you have the Harvest End, in Watford, a few kilometers from the attraction, for example it shows € 50 per night on average for quite adequate services, with private and free parking.

Even closer but a little more expensive you have the King Lodge.

Anyway if you want to know where to stay in London to visit Harry Potter studiosI think the easiest way for you is to stay at Victoria Station (for those coming from Gatwick airport). Here are the Harry Potter tickets with transportation from Victoria Station.

I found 3 tickets from Victoria station, it's up to you to compare prices, schedules and availability. Ticket 1, Ticket 2 and Ticket 3 for Harry Potter Studios with transportation from Victoria Station.

Here you can also get to the Harry Potter studios on your own, so it may be good to find accommodation near this station (Euston station). Here's the Harry Potter ticket with transportation from King's Cross Station.

  • Where to stay in London to be close to the Harry Potter studio?

If you want to find a hotel in London while being close to the station (Victoria or King's Cross) to reach the Harry Potter studios, look for accommodation near Euston or Saint Pancras station (Fossil - King's Cross) (d (in other places, this is the station you are sure to arrive by if you are arriving from Luton Airport or via EuroStars).

So if you want to get there by tube from London you need to join London Euston station (which is next to King 'Cross Saint Pancras or Euston station) to get to Watford Junction station, then take the shuttle to harry potter studios.

You also have Hotels.com or TripAdvisor that can help you find accommodation, take your time to compare!

Here are some good addresses we shared with internet users in my "Where to sleep in London" article.

  • Affordable accommodation?

Zones 2 and 3 are a little less expensive and allow you not to be too far from the center. Furthermore, London has changed a lot in recent years and one district cannot be said to be more sensitive than another.

That being said, London is still expensive to find accommodation and the city is 3 times more than Paris, it would be a shame to be too far from the city center ... Therefore it is better to arrive early to benefit from accommodation with a good value for money.

  • For those coming from Gatwick airport:

I advise you to stay not far from Paddington station, to enlarge this Hotel Map - Hotel near Victoria station:

6) where to go out near the Harry Potter studios

Make no mistake, go to London just for the Harry Potter Studios TourIt is a great effort for a few hours of visitation. While you're at Swinging London, you can enjoy it too.

Various tours of London will allow you to deepen your visit, such as King's Cross station, of course, the reptile house of the London Zoo where Harry meets a boa constrictor.

Lambeth Bridge where the Magicobus gets stuck between two double-decker buses. Tower Bridge over which Harry Potter flies on his broom, Millennium Bridge destroyed by Death Eaters, or even Leadenhall Market, which evokes Diagon Alley, a covered market in the city of Victorian times.

  • Where to go east

If you visit Leadenhall Market, continue your visit to the East London neighborhood, and in particular to Brick Lane, a long and trendy street full of markets with a thousand flavors and whose walls are covered with street art.

Eat at Tayyabs a stone's throw away for a true Indian culinary experience and head to bars like the Strongroom, perfect for an aperitif in the lively courtyard, or other bars like the Water Poet, with multiple small rooms crammed with such decor. British and surprising Beer Garden.

  • Where to go out in the center

Do you hang out downtown? Skip the Piccadilly Circus area for a meal and head to Covent Garden for typical English food (yes, there is) after a visit to the market.

  • Neil's Patio

To go out at night, you should know that the district is not the best, a bit too touristy. I recommend the Troy 22, a real secret tucked up a side street near Tottenham Court Road station. It's tiny, you feel like you're dancing in someone's living room and the walls are sweating alcohol, but it's an experience to live, to unleash rock hits.

The Spanish restaurant downstairs is also very nice, combining tapas and lively concerts. The two often lead to wild parties that end in the wee hours of the morning, with many new friends. Alternatively, Waxy O'Connor is an institution, with its vaulted rooms, its woodwork ... and even its central tree! Harry Potter probably would have approved of the decoration.

  • Waxy O'Connor

Finally, think of the many West End “musicals”, these musicals like no other, so you don't miss out on your stay in London. Can't get enough of Harry Potter?

Head to the Palace Theater to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child part 1 and 2. It will cost you a whopping £ 125 for each part. No, the price is not magic.

  • Here's how to buy your Harry Potter tickets:

First of all, you must buy your tickets online, here without transport or here with transport.

Once the purchase is made on the site, you will receive an email (so be sure to enter your email address) confirming your entries.
