KEY SIGHTS ON THIS TOUR…
For Harry Potter fans London offers many places that were used as locations for the film franchise and also served as inspiration for J.K Rowling as she wrote the famous books. On this tour we’ll visit many of those magical film locations before travelling to Warner Bros Studios to experience ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ studio tour.
Kings Cross Station
Visit Platform 9 ¾ and see the famous station where Harry and his friends take the Hogwarts Express from London. A specially recreated scene at London’s Kings Cross Station is a must see stop for all Potter fans. Kings Cross is also a fanatic piece of Victorian architecture in its own right.
Ministry of Magic
Along Whitehall where the Uk government is based you’ll find the Ministry of Magic. We’ll explore this famous road and peek through the gates to Downing Street where it is said secret meetings are held between The Ministry of Magic and the Prime Minister himself.
Many streets claim to be the inspiration for Diagon Alley, but the most convincing has to be Goodwin’s Court. A stone’s Throw from Leicester Square where the Potter films premiered, this narrow alley definitely gives the impression you’re about to step into the magical world that Harry inhabits.
The Millennium bridge spans the River Thames at Between The City of London and Tate Modern. It’s unique steel suspension design featured in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The bridge is destroyed by death eaters in the film.
The iconic red phone boxes
If you dial 62442 (magic) in one of the phone booths in London, you’ll be connected directly to the Ministry itself. A must-do whilst on the trip!
The making of Harry Potter
A short drive from London brings us to Warner Bros Studios near Watford. This immersive studio tour will take you through many of the sets and props that were used in filming and brings the films to life. On the tour you will walk through studio sets including The Forbidden Forrest, Platform 9 ¾ and Diagon Alley. You’ll see many of your favourite props used in the films and even the costumes the actors wore during filming.
You’ll learn how many of the special effects came to life including the Invisibility Cloak and Whomping Willow and how the producers used the latest Green Screen technology to blend reality with CGI in the films. The art department gives an insight into the meticulous planning and preparation that went into creating the sets. Plus much more to see besides!
At the end of the studio tour we’ll return to your accommodation in London.
