As you can see in the video above (subscribe to the channel if you haven’t), the first part of my trip was exploring the magical world of Harry Potter through the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. This is where the movie was filmed (certain sets) and includes props, costumes and more from the iconic film series.
See below for more information, tips and photos about this tour.
Location & Transportation
Studio Tour Dr, Watford WD25 7LR, UK
The location is key because you need to be aware that it is located in the outskirts of London, called Watford. There are different modes of transportation but the best is by bus. The hotel I was staying in at Watford was right beside the station so it was easily accessible to the double-decker bus that takes you straight there. A round trip is only 3 Pounds.
Tickets and Availability
You can grab your tickets here and please note you need to purchase tickets in advance. They do come in the mail at a reasonable time and arrives is a cool packaging.
This is a really busy tourist attraction all year round, and rightfully so, therefore you need to book at least 2 to 3 months ahead!
Tour & Navigation
Other key information I would give is that this tour really takes up approximately 4 hours because there is so much to see and do. You will have an audio guide in the beginning and then free to explore the rest of the tour. More than just viewing the props and taking pictures there are many interactive booths including the video you see below. which is also seen on the vlog above.
For those who are asking you do need to pay for the videos and photos, you want to keep. However, it is not bad because the video above plus hard and digital copies (what you see below) was around 10 pounds.
Food Options and More
There are various food options available, above you see the candles on top of the food hall and some neat artwork in that area. I ate food at the Backlot Cafe and if you are interested in my review, check it out here.
The Great Hall
The Forbidden Forrest
Gringotts Wizarding Bank
I believe the Gringotts bank was a new addition this year. Watch the vlog to see the cool animation they had.

Can you identify which movie each picture is from? Let me know in the comments below! The below images include from Diagon Alley, Chamber of Secrets and much more!
4 Privet Drive
I honestly don’t have any recommendations for WB as I really did enjoy everything. Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of the gift shop but there was a lot of cool things to purchase at a decent price. I do suggest you make sure you leave a day ready for this just so you can take your time exploring, taking pictures and shopping.
