Full description

Depart London and journey towards Warner Bros. Studio to take "The Making of Harry Potter" tour. Located in former aircraft hangars in the residential district of Leavesden, the unique attraction recreates the magic of Harry Potter and all your favorite characters. Board the original "Hogwarts Express" train at a recreation of Platform 9¾, and explore the inside of the train carriage featured in the films. Take a selfie with a luggage trolley as it disappears through the station's brick wall.

The studio staff will reveal the behind-the-scenes secrets and unveil the intricate prosthetics and make-up that transformed actors into creatures in the blockbuster films. See sets from the original movies, and get a peek inside the college of Hogwarts during the 4-hour studio tour. Journey through attractions such as The Great Hall, Gryffindor Common, Hagrid's Hut, the Weasleys' kitchen, and the Ministry of Magic. Take a tour of the backlot and a special effects tour, see a model of Hogwarts Castle, and much more. Depart the Studios and journey to Oxford to explore the real college buildings, including the medieval Divinity School. Upon arrival in the university city founded in 1167, take a guided tour of the historical center and admire some of the most famous college buildings, cloisters, and quadrangles. Delve down alleyways and into chapels, look inside dining halls and across cobblestone squares under the shadows of the legendary "dreaming spires." Enter the hallowed heartland of academia, including the Bodleian Library, Radcliff Camera, Sheldonian Theatre, and other select colleges.

Magical trip! We loved it. It was displayed full but not the impression of being stuck, on the contrary! Very pleasant! We were amazed by all the decor work that was done! Even my husband who is not a fan was impressed! The staff was super nice! What happiness! We visited Oxford just before going there. It was great too. We were lucky to have a great guide Rob who gave us lots of info!

Everything went like clockwork. The tour guide Valentina was very nice and knowledgeable. At first I only wanted to book Harry Potter, but I'm very glad that I booked Oxford as well. A great place with a lot of history and great buildings. Harry Potter was awesome! But only for fans! Great day well organized. I would only advise everyone to be at the meeting point punctually at the agreed times, as there is not a long wait.

Great trip to Oxford with 2-hour guided round trip. Competent, witty guide (Toni). For Harry Potter but are 4h by the studios almost too little, as it is huge in the first line and is incredibly much to see. There is little time for details (and there are many). Maybe there would be a private trip not wrong. Nevertheless, I am glad to have been there!
