Our insider tips

Make sure to get the Activity Passport

Activity Passports are available for free from the info desk by the entrance. If you're there with kids, definitely grab one as it includes fun activities such as a Golden Snitch hunt and six passport stamps to collect throughout the studio – a great souvenir to take home!

Ride the legendary double decker bus

If you're coming by public transport, take the train to Watford Junction and from there, ride the Harry Potter double decker bus to the studios. It's a more convenient way to get there than by regular transport, as it's cheap, the buses come roughly every 10 minutes, and they drop you directly at the entrance to the studios.

Great way to get last minute tickets, but not enough time

There are a lot of negative reviews of Get Your Guide, so much that I was worried that the tickets would be fake. But everything was legitimate. They pick you up right outside the congestion zone (so not at your hotel if you are staying in central London). The studio tour is awesome but really does take 4-5 hours to complete, particularly if you want to take a break half-way and have a snack or meal. The reviews that say you don't have enough time are right. I'm not sure why they don't fix this. We offered our driver extra money to wait another 45 minutes and he did, so it worked for us. But I'm not sure that every driver would do that and it would be harder if you were sharing a car (which they often have two groups do).

this is by far the best option to visit Warner / Harry Potter Studios

I have to commit I was a little bit sceptic in the beginning when booking this option. Turned out that it was - by far - the best option I could go for. Meeting point is very convenient as it let's you grab some sandwiches (if needed) and/or coffee before you go. We could meet Yonas and his team very easy as they were there half an hour before 12:00 (expected departure time). Transfer started on time. We shared a minivan with 2 lovely ladies from Sweden. Said made the 90 minutes trip to Watford short and entertaining >> the fun started for us on our way there. The tour itself is a m a z i n g and a must for any Harry Potter fan (and definitely worth visiting even if not like me) PS: 3,5 hours on site is the perfect time

Easy and convenient way to explore Oxford and Harry Potter studios

I attended the trip with my 13 years old daughter. We both liked the trip so much. It was easy to travel with the bus and the guide, who told us Oxford's history on the way there. The bus driver was also so nice and funny! In Oxford we divided into two groups and our guide was the most fantastic lady called Debbie. She told us interesting stories about the university, studying there and of course Harry Potter connections. At the studios we had 4 hours to explore it by ourselves. I can recommend this trip to everyone, who is willing to pay a little extra for a convenient bus travelling and to know a little more about Oxford.

Harry Potter Studio Tour & Oxford Day Tour from London Reviewed by

Excellent, well worth the money, we loved it!

All ran smoothly apart query over what time the coach left the station. Our departure time was not showing on the list of departure times on confirmation email but got resolved promptly via phone and email. Contrary to what I had read in other reviews there was lots of choice with very good food in the main food hall near entry/exit. Just burgers and hot dogs in cafe (and butter beer/ice-cream!) half way through the studios. Lovely day, would do it again and especially loved the CGI dragon in remains of Gringotts Bank! Coach driver and coach very pleasant too. Would recommend.

Great tour, but no time to eat lunch during the short break

Our guides were great and the tour was interesting and informative. It was just great! However, we were very dissappointed with the short break (30 min for lunch). That would have been plenty of time, but since the break was at a time when everyone else wanted to eat too, we ended up with 8 minutes left to eat and go to the toilet. That was a real shame and my child had to leave about half of the meal uneaten.
