We had travelled up to Brighton for the 9 o clock tour. Early start but we were glad of it. We understood 2 - 3 hours, but we were there 5 hours!! It was very well organised, met in the foyer and at 9 went through, the guide gave us a talk and explanation and then opened the huge doors to the Great Hall and WOW. Once through the Great Hall, which was a time limited, the rest was drift at leisure. There was so much to see. The queue for a photo and DVD of you on a broomstick with green screen film background was very long and we gave it a miss. The photo was reasonably priced but the DVD was expensive. Didn't want to spend time in a queue. There were a number of film booths but half not open.
There is a small seating area outside, once we had looked round the displays, (I won't list all there is as they have a good website and there are films on Youtube.)
We had a small beaker of Butterbeer next to 4 Privet Drive, £2:95 and reminiscent of cream soda!
The creature shop is wonderful and we spent a long time in there.
There is a sizeable product shop and we bought our granddaughter a T shirt - cost £15.95, nothing is cheap of course. The guide book of the tour is worth the money and we bought one.
Overall it is a wonderful day out.
Tip - go early, as the day went on and others came in, it got crowded. Also, if you are early and want to pop out for refreshments, you can get back into the main area, late afternoon you can't, we were told.
