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.

What people are saying about Warner Bros. Studio London

Matthew was a wonderful guide. Lots of information and helpful tips.

Matthew was a wonderful guide, giving lots of information on Oxford and the surrounding drive. Also gave good suggestions for free time in Oxford and good places to grab a bite. Driver was very professional and safe. Excellent tour!

Very detailed and high-quality, spectacular tour, we really enjoyed it

I think the tour is well-organized. It was absolutely stunning, to take a walk in the Gringotts and the Diagon Alley, the Forbidden Forest and etc. I didn't think the exhibition is so big, there are even outdoor parts, where you can take a walk around the Knight Bus, the original houses, the Hogwarts wooden bridge. You can sit into the flying Ford Anglia, or take a selfie on Hagrid's bike. You can watch loads of behind-the-scenes videos and photos, robots and their electronics, masks, costumes, literally everything. I think it's not just for Harry Potter fans, but for film fanatics, who are curious about film making. It was very likable, that a few stories and "warning videos" were told by the original actors. :)

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.

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.

This studio tour is a must do for anyone who likes Harry Potter

So much to see and such amazing quality. The guide, Emma, was brilliant. Finding the guide at Euston Station was pretty easy, although it wasn’t that clear that we were part of a City Wonders group and not a get your guide tour.
