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

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

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!

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.

The tour Tom provided and excellent and interesting tour.

As grandparents we enjoyed seeing our two grandchildren thoroughly enjoy themselves.

Nic was a great guide, who made this tour a very lively event!

We were a bit late at the meeting point and appreciated very much that they waited for us a few minutes.

Amazing experiece - a must for all Harry Potter fans

We spent wonderful time in the studio. Eye catching creatues, great behind the scene informations, great entertainment. One should plan 4-5 hour for the in studio - if you wish to see and try everything!

Wonderful tour, lots of information about HP and sights!

Great tour for the HP-fans to see some of the inspirational sights for the films. Aneira knows a lot to tell. It was also really great to hear about al the sights along the way, so it's sort of a citytour en HP-tour in one. Group was around 12.
