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!

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 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

Absolutely brilliant and such a bargain in terms of cost.

We had the pleasure of Sam the Man as our tour host. He was so, so good. The tour lasted approximately 2.5 hours and cost £30.00 which included the boat ticket (bargain). The tour is so informative and really makes the films come to life. To make the tour even more enjoyable Sam the Man did a quiz at each stop and also got certain people on the tour to Rein-act a scene which was fun especially for our 7 year old who got to play Harry Potter. If you have the time book yourself on the tour, you won’t be disappointed. 10/10 Sam the Man

An informative, fun and enjoyable experience!

The tour around London learning about the city as a backdrop to Harry Potter (and other films) was a great way to spend two and a half hours. Ryan's warm and humourus manner supported the group's engagement throughout the experience for young and old. As a tour guide, he was knowledgeable and enthusiastic when sharing the facts and information we all wanted to hear. For those attending 'The Cursed Child' like us, this is an excellent activity to do as part of the Harry Potter experience.

Fun and interesting tour, Tom was very knowledgable and entertaining.

Booked this tour for my daughter’s birthday (she’s 25) and myself as were both Potter fans. Tom our guide both entertaining and knowledgeable about Harry Potter and London. We got to see parts of London you may not normally see. I would highly recommend this tour and Tom as a guide.

Loved the experience and the guide who drove was intelligent and nice

For us the experience was wonderful; however, it was overly priced and I would have liked a less pricey option that I did not have. If we are paying that much, I would like to stay longer at the studios, we practically rushed through in order to see everything.
