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 enchanted dining hall--recreated at Warner Bros. Studios--was inspired by the real dining hall at Oxford’s Christ Church College.

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 Ministry of Magic

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

If you weren't a HP fan before the visit, you would be afterwards!

At first, we thought the tickets were a little expensive, but afterwards we realized it was very well spent! The guide at the train station was really enthusiastic and helpful, and made the transportation both easy and enjoyable. He made the whole group excited for the trip. The girl who guided us inside the studios, was simply amazing! We were handed (nice quality) individual headphones, which meant we could hear her loud and clear all the time. All the stuff she knew was unbelievable, and even though we are pretty big HP-fans, she could tell us tons of things we didn't know beforehand. The possibility of going back into the studios after the tour was one of the things, that made the extra spending worthwhile. It meant that we could take the time on the tour to pay attention to the things she told, and really enjoy it. Then we could go back inside again, and take the tour in our own pace, and take as many pictures as we would like. All summed up, it was an amazing trip!

Good (family) tour for Harry Potter fans.

Good organisation, but a bit chaotic at the site. We thought the slot times would be handled stricter. And the time of the actual beginning of the tour was misleading. We were at the meeting point at Victoria two hours early! That was a bit annoying.
Harry Potter Family Package with Transfers from London Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 10/14/2016

Harry Potter Studio was teriffic, wished we had more time there.

My daughter and I really enjoyed the studio. But we felt that we where very rushed, to get back to the bus on time. We would have prefered if we had the option to travel back on a later bus.

We had a wonderful time. Absolutely awesome!!!

We had an amazing time. The whole tour was a tribute to everyone around those amazing books and films. To everyone who loves Harry Potter - Please visit the Studios!!!

An amazing magical day for Harry Potter fans.

The actual tour of the Warner Bros studio tour was a wonderful magical experience. So many things to see and enjoy. Just check and make sure the tour transfer & Hotel pick up is valid before you book, otherwise you may have a trek to the Victoria Coach Station to access the coach.
