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

Enjoyable and fun tour with Hagrid aka John

John was a very engaged tour guide and it was great fun to get the whole group sorted into groups and answer quizzes along the way. The guide was very thorough and had many film facts. All in all it was a great tour while also exploring London.

Amazing! Definitely a must for anyone...Harry Potter fan or not!

Incredible experience! Amazing seeing all the sets, props and costumes used in the films. Also now knowing how much work went into the sets alone makes me appreciate the film franchise even more! A fun, interesting family experience for all ages!

absolutely outstanding tour. Our guide George was fantastic

My daughter and I went on the Harry Potter walking tour and our guide was George. Right from the start he made everyone feel at ease. Most of our group were foreign and I was impressed with the way he dealt with the language barrier by using translation on his I pad. The tour was very informative and fun. George was very easy to talk to and took the time to answer any questions that the group had. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

The most amazing tour guide, I ever experienced.

I would like to thank rob for being an amazing tour guide for our harry potter tour. He does his job very well, takes times to explain to everyone and makes jokes around. He is a truly massive harry potter fan so he is the absolute perfect person to host these tours. I would recommend this to my friends and family and make them keep an eye out for rob so they would know that they would have a memorable tour that they wouldn't forget.

Amazing service willing to go the extra mile to make us happy.

We arrived late from a connecting flight and the driver was able to accommodate our bags and modify the travel schedule. We were fortunate enough to be able to coordinate this with the company ahead of time, and were reassured by their flexibility and willingness to please. We would definitely use this company again in the future! The studio tour was amazing and we will remember it for years to come.
