Depart London in the morning and head straight to the Warner Bros Studio to begin this wonderful private day trip! After collection from your London or Heathrow hotel lobby, air bnb, airport arrival terminal, train station, guest house or private address, you'll begin the drive to the Harry Potter Studios.
After a short drive of around 90 minutes, you'll arrive at the Warner Bros Studio, a truly unique attraction. The Studio Tour is your chance to experience the magic that went into creating one of the most successful film series of all time, where you'll see real life sets, props and costumes, all used to make the Harry Potter books come to life! Marvel at the detail throughout the tour as you stroll through the Great Hall, and some of the most iconic sets from the movies, including Diagon Alley, Dumbledore's Office, 4 Privet Drive, the Gryffindor Common Room, the Weasley kitchen, the Hogwarts Express and the latest addition to the Studio Tour, Gringotts Wizarding Bank! During your visit, you'll have the opportunity to discover behind-the-scenes secrets which created the special effects we enjoy in the films, sample a Butterbeer in the Studio backlot, marvel at the intricate details that went into every single part of the films, and take advantage of great photo opportunities. All will be revealed at the working studios where all eight Harry Potter films were produced!
After a magical morning at the Warner Bros Studio Tour London, head back to London for a tour of this spectacular city. Enjoy an eye opening tour of old favourites including Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, St.Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. We will also see the city's more recent additions; the Shard, the London Eye and the replica of Shakespeare's Globe theatre. Let's not forget that wherever you drive in London you will be constantly passing the homes of great writers and poets, politicians, adventurers, inventors, actors and of course filming locations from world famous movies - undoubtedly something for everyone!
