The Harry Potter franchise may have drawn to a close but the magic and enchantment that we all felt throughout the ten years, seven books and eight films can still be relived and experienced all over again.
Harry Potter fans will not only get to experience the magic of the Harry Potter Studio Tour in all it’s glory and wonder, but be given the chance to watch their favourite films at the series’ production home, surrounded by all things Potter.

Visitors will explore the studio, getting to see just how scenes and props were used to create the famous franchise before settling down to watch their chosen film from the JK Rowling series.
An attractive history
Warner Bros. opened the spell binding attraction to the public back in early 2012 and has since seen almost 5,000 visitors pass the corridors of the Great Halls and Dumbledore’s Office each day since.
The studio tour has also been honoured with several awards since it’s opening including 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and was named one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Entertainment Design Projects of 2012 by EntertainmentDesigner.com.
Fun for all the family
The Harry Potter studio tour is an entertaining day out for the whole family and will reignite the magic once again. The tour takes place at Leavesden studios just North-West of London where for over ten years much of the actual filming for many of the films took place.
The tour is a chance to disappear into the wizarding world for a few hours, see the sets, the props, the costumes and even taste for yourself the ButterBeer, a recipe highly sought by many but only known by an elite few.
Recently, the Warner Bros. studio introduced a new audio experience of the tour for the blind, inspired by one little boy’s letters. The experience is now more real, and more magical, for every single child and that means it’s the perfect option for you and your family – whatever your needs.
Could it get better?
Although the tour currently only focuses on Harry Potter, Warner Bros. have highlighted the possibility to expand the famous tour to other Warner Bros. franchises in the years to come. This could promote the tour even further in the eyes of families and offer yet more bang for your buck when it comes to a family day out.
For now, visitors can simply enjoy wandering around a space entirely dedicated to their favourite wizard. Tickets for the Warner Brothers Harry Potter studio tour must be bought in advance and, from July, will cost £31 ($56) for adults, £23.50 for children (under-fours free) and £93 for a family of four.
It is advised that you book your tickets as early as possible to avoid disappointment when selecting your dates. After that, all you have to do is get yourself there – car, tube or broom, however you choose to make the journey is down to you!
