Mad about magic

If your children are mad about the magic of Master Potter, the Warner Bros Studio tour is sure to be a big hit. The unique walking tour takes you behind the scenes and uncovers the secrets of the world’s most successful film series; a series which bought everyone’s favourite books into the real world. You and the kids can marvel at many of the models, sets, costumes and props that helped breathe life into the colourful characters and their enchanting world with adults sure to be just as mesmerised as the kids.

The Harry Potter Tour takes in a variety of spectacular sets. From the Great Hall to the shop front of Gringotts Wizarding Bank, your children can explore the places that continue to spark their interest and imagination.

Step onto the cobbles of Diagon Alley or discover Dumbledore’s Office, complete with Sorting Hat and the authentic Sword of Gryffindor – it’s enough to get even the most despondent teenager smiling with glee!

Hagrid’s hut and his magnificent motorcycle vie for attention too, along with such iconic props as Harry’s Nimbus 2000 broomstick. There are also many models of curious creatures, including the ubiquitous Hippogriff, Buckbeak, and the giant and terrifying spider, Aragog.

Whether you and the kids are an avid fan of the series or a general film enthusiast, there’s something to amaze and astound everyone. Young and old will enjoy uncovering the secrets behind the magic and the detail and imagination that brought the creatures to life is showcased for all to see with make-up designs and extraordinary animatronics.

You’ll discover the power of green screen and special effects and learn how some of the most spectacular scenes evolved. You can also view an amazing, hand-crafted model of Hogwarts Castle. Witness the extensive work and intricate detail that helped bring the enchanted castle to life on the big screen and realise just what a feat it was.

Throughout the year the studio hosts special seasonal surprises for those taking the tour too. Depending on the date of your visit, you could discover some of the spookier special effects with ghostly goings-on at Halloween or enjoy the festivities of Hogwarts Great Hall at Christmas.

Whenever you visit you’ll be guaranteed an exciting and enjoyable experience but before heading out to embrace this world of adventure and enchantment, ensure you plan your visit in advance to avoid disappointment.

Tour tickets are not available for purchase on the day, so you’ll need to book your date and tour time slot in advance. It’s quick and easy to do though and would make a great gift for the kids.
