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

An excellent idea to visit these 2 places on the same tour.

The local tour guide at the Oxford University, Chris, is very knowledgeable and a good story teller. You can tell that he is very proud of his heritage.

The most amazing and informative harry potter tour.

Hi me and my family went for this tour and it was amazing. Our guide Nic took us around the various locations which were used in Harry Potter. We started our journey from Palace theater where the cursed child was playing,it was where we met our guide Nic. First we got sorted into different houses and Nic said that he would ask us questions about Harry potter along the way,which would determine the winner.He took us around various locations and informed us about it . He had and I-pad from where he compared the scene in the movie to the place we were in. Nic was very understanding and he slowed down when we felt tired or needed a break. We also went on a cruise in the Thames river,where he gave us additional information about the various bridges. We visited Daniel Radcliffe's school, places which inspired Diagon Alley, Gringotts Bank, Leaky Cauldron and many more. We ended our tour at Kings Cross station and saw the famous 9&3/4 platform. Nic was an amazing guide and we had a lot of fun

The tour is great way for HP fans to immerse themselves in HP world

This was one of the highlights of my London trip and it was really worth every penny. You get to go into sets, recreate scenes and see a lot of cool behind the scenes things! I also really liked that this ticket included a bus to take you to and from the WB Harry Potter tour, however the bus was supposed to play the first film on the way to the tour but only the audio worked. The tour itself however was truly incredible!

this tour made everything so easy, and truly magical.

I’ve been on this tour both self guided with a regular ticket and now through this tour. This was by far the better experience. It was so great having someone guide us there so we didn’t question once if we got the correct trains/bus. Our tour guide once there was passionate and knowledgeable. Got so much info I didn’t already know. I felt like I had special access as he interacted with props in a way regular people could not. I did an early morning session on a Saturday and was able to go through the exhibit AGAIN a little slower and take even more photos. I would say the cost was worth it, and a big thank you to our guide who made my trip extra special!

We have a great time yesterday at our walking tour.

We have a great time yesterday at our walking tour. Our guide, Ryan, was great, with a nice sense of humor. My 11th years old daugther, really enjoyed it. Althouth English isn't our mother language, the description was understood.
