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.

What people are saying about Warner Bros. Studio London

Overall easy with the transportation - studio tour was excellent

Overall this was a good deal and worth it. It was low hassle. The pick-up location isn't super practical and there seemed to be only one option. They had two coaches so if you get there a little early maybe you could be in the first group to go. Mobile tickets worked great. In any case, we were in the second one so went 10 or 15 mins later. The only real complaint I had was that they don't tell you they stop to pick up others at a hotel on the way. As it's in London it added a full 30 mins to the trip. And it was only a couple people so it was annoying... why didn't they also need to meet at the same place we did? Once underway it went quite quickly. Wifi in the coach was occasionally spotty but on most of the time. The studio tour itself is outstanding. They allowed about 30 minutes more than what I wanted for everyone to be back (4.5 hours). But OK... and return was smooth. We got off at that first stop on the return. Would do it again - overall well organized and smooth. Thanks!

Warner Bros. Studio London: Tour with Coach Transfers Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 02/11/2018

Very good! A must do for all Harry Potter fans!

Very very good! We loved every bit of it! Only thing not so good was the time. We felt like er had to hurry up all day. Left us with no time at all in the shop. That is bad for business guys! Kids got stressed finding things to take back home. Being able to book your preferd terurntrip might be an idea.

Everything went to plan and staff were helpful and charming.

We arrived one hour early for the coach transfer as I misunderstood the booking and thought the Warner Brothers part of the tour started at the booked time. It may have been my fault but it could be made clearer on the tickets.

It’s on the steep side but overall worth the money in my opinion

Our guide really made the experience with her enthusiasm and knowledge. A few audio issues but nothing to detract from the experience

Book twice! One for Warner Brothers and one for Oxford

Only problem was that we could have used double the time. A wonderful, well organised trip to be recommended!
