We have taken a Deluxe tour with my wife and were amazed by winter pre-Christmas mood and decorations WB crew has set up. We have enjoyed our time, possibility to re-enter the tour and were astonished with the extent of the tour. Would definitelly recommend to everyone!

Me and my partner visited for the first day of hogwarts in the snow and were absolutely blown away. I have visited the tour before but it felt just as magical the second time around.
The food in the lobby's cafe was very tasty, I had initially thought it seemed expensive but the pies we ordered were worth every penny, we even had other people coming and asking what we'd ordered because it looked so good!
The tour itself was handled very well, there were a lot of people with the queue extending out past the cafe but the staff handled it well, kept everybody organised and the queue moved very fast. The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic and seemed to do a great job of making sure everybody had a magical time!
The one down side was with how busy it was, at points it was difficult to see certain things for a little while but that still isn't too bad considering just how many people were there.

We visited the Studio Tour on a Friday in the middle of November, just before the Dark Arts event came to a close, and overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the exploration through the Harry Potter Studio Tour.

However, the biggest issues we faced were trying to read and navigate around the exhibits with the large number school groups and an enormous amount of irritating self sticks. For people like us, who have an interest in being able to closely engage with the attractions and memorabilia, we found it very difficult to do so, without being rudely interrupted by a large number of people taking selfies, with the use of selfie sticks. Due to this, we felt as if we were not able to spend enough time looking at everything in as much detail as we would have liked. It almost felt as if we were being pushed aside just to accommodate for people taking selfies. Furthermore, before entering the exhibition, we were repeatedly told not to eat or drink unless we were in the Back Lot Cafe, however one school group decided to sit in the middle of one of the exhibition rooms eating their packed lunch. This made it difficult to enjoy this part of the tour.

Aside from this however, we thoroughly enjoyed being able able to take a behind the scenes glimpse at the world, and making of, Harry Potter. The interactive displays and performances with the Death Eaters, as part of the Dark Arts event, bought the exhibits to life, and made the over all experience feel more immersive. It would however, have been nice to see a little more of this interactivity taking place.

It would have been nice to have seen more 'making of Harry Potter' merchandise in the store, along side all of the Harry Potter memorabilia. Although many Harry Potter fans love being able to spend their money buying house jumpers and chocolate frogs, it would have been nice to see more that focused on the tour itself.

Overall, we really enjoyed our visit to the Harry Potter Studio Tour, and should we visit again, we would make sure to do so during another one of the seasonal events, e.g Hogwarts in the snow.

P.s Please ban selfie sticks, as many other tourist attractions have done so.

Everything I dreamt of and more.. Absolutely amazing.. They show you everything and more. We traveled over from Dublin and it was the highlight of the trip, very accessible we got a train direct from euston station and the harry potter bus picked us up and dropped us back when done.. Couldn't fault it. Also a plus we got to experience the great hall at Christmas time.

We were previously impressed with the standard Tour so were very excited at going to a special screening of the latest Fantastic Beasts just a day after its UK premiere. At £149 each (no discount for our 10 y/o daughter) it meant spending nearly £500 for the evening, but we thought it would be worth it. It wasn't.

We had to wait nearly an hour just to join the normal public Tour, and the Studios were so understaffed that there were long queues for everything, leaving us at serious risk of not making the screening at all as we got so behind time. So in the end we skipped out whole chunks of the Tour just to ensure we were in time for the screening.

The 'special screening' was clearly an afterthought and it was botched. For that price you'd expect a fast track and special experience but what it boiled down to was a standard Studio Tour, a burger, a couple of free drinks and a free photo. The staff were unfailingly pleasant but really weren't sure what to do with the 100 or so people who had turned up for the screening, and we were left thinking how good it could have been, rather than how good it was. A big miss.

A real must do for any Harry Potter fan! Book the early tours as it gets busy as the day goes on. The digital guides are very useful but not essential (it gives you extra information) and dont rush through the exhibits as you cant go back once you are in the gift shop at the end. A real insight into how the films were made. We spent 3 to 4 hours here but you could take longer. The gift shop items are expensive but only what you would expect for Warner Bros and the like.
Hope to come back one day.

Fantastic visit. It exceeded my expectation. Often, us british folk dont do theme parks as well as the americans but Warner Bro's have done really well. The atmosphere throughout was awesome. It is well worth the trip. My only negative point was that we would have liked to have purchased food and drink but the ques were just far far to long. They do let you take your own though. Just go!

I brought my 10 year old grandson all the way from Somerset for a day out. The 11 hours round trip travelling on buses and trains was well worth it. We were tired and hungry on arrival so were pleased to find the café by the entrance to the tour where we could rest and eat. The food was excellent. Every effort has gone into creating a healthy and tasty menu that is also reasonably priced. I was really impressed by this. Whilst sat here we could also explore our tour guide device before going in. That was good as we hardly used it when in there. The exhibition was marvellous. You pushed a button and it worked! Each exhibit was displayed really well even for those who are not 100% au fait with the stories/films. It was amazing to see the skill and real artistry that goes into making the costumes, props and sets - not to mention special effects. So much here as well to inspire children about careers - these are real jobs you too can do! be a set designer, a draughtsman, a dressmaker, a technical wizz - all just amazing. My granddaughter is due to visit with her school drama group and there is so much to see and learn here to inspire students. The most amazing thing for me was the model of Hogwarts Castle - totally magical. I need to mention too how brilliant the staff were. Lots of them and very helpful. Only two gripes. We queued for about 15 minutes for the flying broomstick photo/dvd. And another 30 mins for the purchase. The waiting was bad enough but when we got the picture it was disappointing. There was glare on my grandson's glasses - which could have been edited out and he looked at the picture and said 'that is not my hair!' so I have no idea of what happened there as he was right. But we took the pic hurriedly as there was a queue behind, but it was not worth the £14. Then in the various gift shops the merchandise was ridiculously expensive. Pricing definitely needs to be looked at. Given the numbers of people spending money, it should be possible to sell goods more reasonably priced for what they are. But all in all a really worthwhile day out.

Excellent day out, everyone enjoyed it. It is exciting to have a look at the special events and behind the scenes. It really is a fabulous and magical place to visit if you are a Harry Potter fan. I've been about 5 times altogether and each time there has been something added to see. This time for me it was the forbidden forest and it had a Halloween theme with Deatheaters putting on a display.
The only down side is the prices for things In the shop and for photos, I really feel that it is a rip off for certain things. A photo on a broomstick is £14 for 1 and £20 for 2. A chocolate frog is now £9! and the merchandise is generally a lot of money so make sure you take lots with you.
I would definitely go again as it is magical and I have learned new things each time.
