London Part 4: Harry Potter Studio Tour


The thing I was looking forward to most about London was definitely the Harry Potter Studio Tour. Harry Potter has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. My friends and I used to go to all of the movies on opening night and went to Boston and lined up all day to get the last book right at midnight. I even dragged my family to NYC for the last movie premiere and got up at 4am to go meet Rupert Grint - best moment of my life. I never get tired of watching the movies over and over again and I probably never will. We went to the tour on Halloween and it was everything I imagined it to be and more. It took us about four hours to get through everything and they had special Dark Arts things for Halloween, like Death Eaters walking around and trying to scare you.

It starts off with a video from the cast - which I had to make an effort not to cry during - and then the tour starts in the Great Hall. The first part of the tour is more about the props and setups of the different rooms and such, and then you move on to an outside area that has Butterbeer, the Knight Bus, Privet Drive, the bridge, and the flying car. Then there's Diagon Alley and the castle, which is more amazing than you could imagine in person. The last part is the Hogwarts Express and Platform 9 3/4 and all of the gift shops. I took a ridiculous amount of photos but these are some of my favorites. If you ever find yourself in London and are a Harry Potter fan, you absolutely have to make a trip to the studio.

The only thing better was when I went to the Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, I literally burst into tears as I walked through the gates!

  33. I could say the same thing! Harry Potter was (and still is!) my absolute favorite. Whenever a new book came out, my sister and I literally wouldn't put it down until we finished it, so naturally my mom always got angry at us for reading it during dinnertime.

    Also - your hair is just as magical as the series!
