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!

The Leaky Cauldron

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.

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.

Fantastic experience for the whole family

The Harry Potter Guided Walking Tour gave us the opportunity to see and explore places we would otherwise not have known to visit or even look for. Our guide Gary provided great, unexpected insights mixed with "Harry Potter" humor. The boys (8 & 11) walked the full 2,5 hours with a smile on their face and without complaining once. Thanks for a fantastic experience!

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.

Very enthusiastic guide, fun quizzes, interesting facts and sights.

Highly recommend!!! 2 1/2 hours whisked by with our lovely guide Cate! Good fun for the whole family:-)
