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.

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 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!

Classy day out for Harry Potter fans like me

There was a time, you could only do this kind of thing in a great way, in America. This experience is top level, beautifully done, just as interesting for adults as well as kids. All you ever wanted to know about the great skills and effort needed to make those legendary Harry Potter films! Plus high quality merchandising too!

Harry Potter Studios are very interesting

The price for the ticket is very high, in this price the headsets should really be included. The Meeting point should be at another point, very much traffic.
