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 trip - enough time for both activities

This is a long day and while you can spend a whole day (or two!) at either Oxford or Harry Potter studios, there is enough time on this trip to enjoy both (being somewhat mindful of the time). We had a great tour guide in Oxford, local man who I believe studied/studies there; he gave recommendations & local flavor. Had enough time for lunch at Turf Tavern and some quick shopping. Harry Potter studio is massive and one can easily schedule a whole day for it. We had about 4 hours. I'm a massive fan and was accompanied by a casual one. We ideally would have liked about 30-45 minutes longer to not feel at all rushed but again, still plenty of time to wait in line for pictures on a broomstick, Hogwarts Express, etc if everything else is kept at a decent pace. Unfortunately, the bus does not have outlets, wifi or a bathroom. However, the driver does stop at the facilities en route. Overall, I rate this a 9/10 (slightly longer at Harry Potter maybe, upgraded bus) but would recommend!

If you are a Harry Potter fan, you MUST do this!

This was truly an amazing place to visit and it was all organized so well! We had met one person who told us that we will be taking the train with him (while handing us tickets) and guided us from the train station to the bus, where is also told us how to get back to London from the train station since we had open ended train tickets for our return. We then had a new guide inside the studio. She was someone who was enjoyable, but really focused on what her interests were. I understand that there is A LOT to see, but for example, we stood in front of the description of the directors of the films from over the years and explained why they did these movies, etc. That is information we could have Googled if we wanted to. She did point out a lot of small details throughout the tour that really big Harry Potter fans would enjoy. After the guided tour, you were allowed to go back into the exhibits and take your time reading and reviewing. Overall, this was a very memorable experience.

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.

What a great tour! Get your tickets EARLY!

This was a terrific tour. Be sure to get your tickets early as they sell out, and there are very limited entry to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter behind the scenes experience. I can't tell you how many times we heard in London that people tried to get tickets but it was sold out. I loved how this was a self-guided tour, because it allowed my daughter and me to take our time and focus on the things that interested us most. The bus left on time and was very comfortable and they gave us more than enough time to see the entire attraction, eat and shop. I highly recommend this tour!

Well worth going, but wouldn't book with a tour.

I would 100% go back to Harry Potter, but would not book with a tour as they don't leave enough time to get the full experience, go on your own and leave on your own, it's not hard to get there. They only give you about 4 hours to see it with a tour that picks you up and dops you off and I ended up missing the bus and luckily got on the second (not everyone will) but I could have used at least two more hours there than they alloted us.
