OMG!!! If you are a Harry Potter fan, you need to make the effort to go and visit this attraction!!!

My husband and I visited during March 2014 and I can honestly say that I loved every moment!!

It was really interesting to see how the films were made, the sets used, the props created.

I loved all of the Harry Potter films and it was fab to walk down Diagon Alley, stand at the huge chimneys in the Ministry of Magic and not to forget entering the Great Hall via the huge doors often seen in the films.

The back-lot was also excellent where you can try butter-beer, sit in the enchanted car, stand on the back step of the knight bus as well as knocking on the door of the Dursley's House on Privet Drive.

Yes it’s expensive but in my view it's worth the money!! Your tour is self-guided and you are not rushed around. Its also fab that they allow you to take photographs during the tour and the guides that were available, were only too happy to help with you wanted photos with a friend or partner.

Even thought I have been on the tour, I would certainly go back and do it all again - it was that good!!

“5 reasons to take your teens to see Warner bro studio near London”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

I am not a fan of Harry Potter. My daughters are and like any involved parent i hear them. On a recent visit to London, both the girls were adamant to see the studio. I tried to wiggle out but eventually agreed coz i wanted to spend time with them.
And then I was charmed..
The first thing I noticed was the details. The love in creating each piece was evident. It was the old fashioned satisfaction of doing a job with a focus. We have forgotten the art, trying to keep up with the pace.
The second was the variety of skills used to create. From line drawing to actual working model, i could count 25 different work types. It was a good factor to point out to my 16 year old , who is going through i-dont-know-what -i- will-do, that there are jobs and jobs in the world which she could work towards.
Third was telling her about project management. Fantastic live example of disparate objects woven together in one story.
Fourth the creativity. JK Rowling thought it and then 4000 men and women gave shape to it.
Fifth and most important, also a learning for me, that the best works of art do not always give credit to its owner. How much I know that as a manager and how much rant I hear about it. 4000 people worked on the sets but only handful of names known. These people must have moved on, because life is not about sitting pretty about one act, but being able to make and move on.

It was time well spent and i was glad that it was with my daughters.

Fantastic from the moment of arrival. Good parking, well organised queuing for entry, well rehearsed and professional guides. The attraction its self, on the original sound stages, all of which are iconic is magical. The feeling of being behind the scenes is a terrific thrill. And adds to the experience. Straight home and watched the last two, back to back.

Some of the items in the shop are shockingly expensive.....

Well organised coach from Victoria. From start to finish it had me enthralled. Favourite bit was behind the theatre screen ( not going to say as I dont want to ruin the suprise) Disliked leaving ! It was my daughters birthday and every single member of staff who saw her badge made a fuss of her ( shes 21!!!) Cant wait to go back

“Harry Potter Perfection”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

If your a HP fan........Just GO!!! Amazing , perfect day. So much to see and take in. Loved every second. No negatives at all ( apart from not loving the taste of butter beer !)
The whole location is set up really well. Flowed without a flaw. Spent hours and never felt rushed or too busy. Worth the money. Gift shop great if you need to remember your credit card as it is too good to miss these items if your a fan. Anyway just go...!
