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!

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.

Excellent day out at Warner Bros Studios

The tour itself was amazing would highly recommend. Bit of confusion regards the pick up times and entrance times could do with better clarification on your confirmation emails. I had booked for the 1.30pm entrance (bus leaving at 11.30am) when we arrived for bus was advised we had been booked on 1.30pm bus for a 3.30pm entrance. Not to bad for us as hotel was located near pick up point but would of been a nightmare had we travelled from further afield. Bus also broke down for return journey which caused delays for familys with young kids not getting back til after 9pm at night and waiting out in cold for alternative transport.

Full of fun Potter facts and features used in filming

Our guide Lena was a fountain of Harry Potter knowledge as well as info on other London landmarks. Would definitely recommend to Potter fans.

Every thing was well planned and enjoyable

A nice calm place for prayer was provided for us, this was very thoughtful and responsible. Very amazing experience.

Sarah is a super friendly and knowledgeable guide for this tour!

We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and Sarah, our tour guide, was super friendly and knowledgeable about Harry Potter (she has been a fan of the series since the beginning)! She showed us many places where JK Rowling got her inspirations or were filmed in the movies. I actually took the family by a few of the places already but there was no way I could have described the background and history (my daughter who is a big Harry Potter fan would definitely attest to that). Even though we took longer than the expected 3hrs (lots of pictures), Sarah was professional and took us to the end of the tour. We had a lot of pleasant chats along the way as well. My whole family would HIGHLY recommend Sarah!
