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

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

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

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.


What people are saying about London

Very interesting and very informative and active

It was well planned guided tour on Harry Potter The quizes were very infomative and add dynamicity and humour to the tour The only issue for considering was the pace of the tour- it was too fast for us and we had to run most the time.

This was an awesome experience and the highlight of our trip.

Andi our guide was absolutely amazing. We've taken many tours and have had a range of quality guides, she is literally the best we have ever had. So thorough, detailed, knowledgeable, and absolutely lovely.

Loved the tour. Great for adults and kids. Would do it again.

Guide was on time, friendly and really knowledgable. Gave us Harry Potter info and inteeesting London history as well (Why do you see the Chanel logo on London lamp posts?) The guide had a challenge because none of the 8 year old children on the tour had actually seen the movies, and yet he was able to help us understand the sites and relate them back to the story and prepare for when they would see them in the movies. He was a good sport. We covered a surprising amount of territory, but didn’t feel rushed in the least. The kiddos were able to keep up just fine. We toured on a Saturday, and felt like any day would have been a fine day for this tour. I much preferred this walking tour to a day “trapped” on a bus for the other big name and $$$ tour that you’ll read about when you visit London. The last stop was the official Harry Potter store at King’s Cross station, where we indulged in an official HP wand. Perfect!

Great day, lovely car, ran like clockwork

What a great day, the driver was on time, the car was spotless. The studio tour was great and the transfer back to the city was lovely. Highly recommend this company.

Fab Tour - Highly recommended for any Potter Fans of ANY age

Fantastic walking tour, our guide Sam (he) was fab, especially considering it was his first solo tour. Our 6 year old absolutely loved it, would highly recommend - 5*
