After collection from your London or Heathrow address (we can collect from your hotel lobby, air bnb, airport arrival terminal, train station, guest house or private address) your exclusive day trip begins with a visit to Oxford, to visit the historic town and its famous University founded in 1167. Its connections to the world of literature are wide and varied. Alice in Wonderland, The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia to name but three. Authors, poets, actors, inventors and statesmen have called Oxford their home over centuries past. Spend the morning exploring Oxford's ivy clad colleges, beautiful university buildings, secluded quadrangles and cobbled streets.
After lunch, begin the short journey to the very studios used to create the Harry Potter films. See the actual sets, props and costumes, and tour the huge buildings used to bring the boy wizard to the big screen! Enter Hogwarts Great Hall and walk past the wooden tables down to the sorting hat. Sit in the Weasley's flying car and peer into Hagrid's hut. Stroll along the spectacular Diagon Alley and visit the Gryffindor Common Room. Out in the backlot you can see the Dursley house in Privet Drive, Harry's parents house at Godric's Hollow and then marvel at the Knight Bus! Visit Hogsmeade station and climb aboard the Hogwarts Express.
The latest and biggest addition to date the Warner Bros Studio is Gringotts Wizarding Bank! Gringotts is lined by marble pillars, sparkling chandeliers, and props and costumes belonging to the Goblin bankers. Discover the vault of Bellatrix Lestrange, see the Sword of Gryffindor, piles of golden Galleons, silver Sickles, bronze Knuts and Helga Hufflepuff’s cup. After exploring the Studio Tour, you'll have the chance to purchase souvenirs such as wand replicas, robes and wizarding chess sets before beginning the short journey back to London.
**If you are unable to source tickets at the Warner Bors. Studio tour at 1pm, we can switch this itinerary and visit the studios first (purchase tickets for around 9:30am), we will then visit Oxford in the afternoon.
