  • Platform 9 and 3/4

    1. Platform 9 and 3/4

    Head to King’s Cross, and push your cart and owl onto the platform just like Harry. Look for the queue of fellow First Years in the main departures hall.

  • The Great Hall

    2. The Great Hall

    The enchanted dining hall--recreated at Warner Bros. Studios--was inspired by the real dining hall at Oxford’s Christ Church College.

  • Hogwarts Express

    3. Hogwarts Express

    The real British steam locomotive (name: Olton Hall) is now a museum display at Warner Bros. Studios. All aboard for the 11 o'clock to Hogwarts!

  • The Leaky Cauldron

    4. The Leaky Cauldron

    Head to Leadenhall Market. At 42 Bull's Head Passage, you'll see a familiar-looking optician's shop (AKA: the entrance to The Leaky Cauldron!).

  • The Ministry of Magic

    5. The Ministry of Magic

    The exterior shots for the Ministry of Magic were filmed at its rather appropriate real-life counterpart: Great Scotland Yard.

Planning Your Visit

  • How far away from London is the Warner Bros. Studio?

    Warner Bros. Studio is located 20 miles north-west from central London, in Leavesden.

  • How do you get to the Warner Bros. Studio?

    The closest railway station is Watford Junction, a quick 20-minute train ride from London's Euston Station. There are also plenty of shuttle buses that leave from central London. Transportation to and from London is often included in a Warner Bros Studio tour, so check out all your options before you book.

  • Can you take a Harry Potter tour without leaving London?

    The world of Harry Potter is the world of London, meaning you can do a lot of sightseeing without ever leaving the city. Take a black cab or a night bus around town, and visit the film locations for the Ministry of Magic. And, of course, you can go to Kings Cross (a real-life train station) and take photos in front of Platform 9 and ¾.

We loved our Harry Potter tour.Our guide, Lula was brilliant! My son, hard core Harry Potter fan, loved every bit of it. My parents are hard of hearing and know nothing about Harry Potter but even they loved it due to Lula's clear and interesting delivery. He was great with the kids and the adults so there was something for everyone.

Our guide Jack was excellent. He made the whole experience far more entertaining than a normal tour. His knowledge about all things Harry Potter was amazing..even his impression of Professor Snape.
