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.

What people are saying about London

Tom (not Riddle) was the best tour guide ever!!

Tom was articulate, knowledgeable (both about Harry Potter and also about London history), and had a good strong voice so that everyone could hear. He was also funny.

this is by far the best option to visit Warner / Harry Potter Studios

I have to commit I was a little bit sceptic in the beginning when booking this option. Turned out that it was - by far - the best option I could go for. Meeting point is very convenient as it let's you grab some sandwiches (if needed) and/or coffee before you go. We could meet Yonas and his team very easy as they were there half an hour before 12:00 (expected departure time). Transfer started on time. We shared a minivan with 2 lovely ladies from Sweden. Said made the 90 minutes trip to Watford short and entertaining >> the fun started for us on our way there. The tour itself is a m a z i n g and a must for any Harry Potter fan (and definitely worth visiting even if not like me) PS: 3,5 hours on site is the perfect time

Better than I expected, great experience.

Few weeks ago, I was in Universal Studios in LA, so I was little sceptical if this tour can offer me something new and exciting. But yes, it´s is completely different kind of experience, interesting, clever, funny and sometimes mindblowing. If you love Harry Potter and movies at all, you shoudl not miss this tribute to one of the biggest franchises of all time - and to movies and people behind them.

Tom was a fantastic, enthusiastic guide. I would highly recommend him.

Tom was a great tour guide, who had great enthusiasm about Harry Potter, but also the other sights of London. He pointed out other things that we might be interested in seeing while here. The inclusion of the sorting hat and quizzes kept the tour entertaining and encouraged the fan’s competitiveness while keeping it lighthearted and fun. Go Ravenclaw!

Great Magic Morning in Rainy London with Tom and Harry Potter

Great way of visiting London while walking, with a great Harry Potter addition/main focus. Loved Diagon Alley, Harry Potters' room in the Leaky Cauldron. Loved that it included a ride on the Thames, questions with points. It went by fast and nice, not tiring at all despite a heavy rainy morning. Tom, our guide was really nice, enthusiastic and dynamic. Overall, a great experience. My friends and I, had a really nice time. I recommend it !
