• Warner Bro Studios Tour London•

1:00 pm

Hey guys, hope you had a great week! If you don't know I am going over to America for 3 months with Americamp to work in a summer camp. One of the criteria is to get a Visa, sadly there is not one in Scotland so I had to travel to London for the embassy! 
As you can tell I am a big fan of traveling so this was just another adventure. My parents kindly accompanied me on my travels and more excited paid for a trip to the Warner Bro Studios, London!  
I thought I would share some pics with you on my travels however I have a lot, so I am going to split this into two posts, The Studios, and the Embassy 'experience'!

The Warner Bros Studio Tour

We got the tube into Euston and then got the train into Watford, At Watford Station, there is a shuttle bus that takes you into the Studios, it costs £2.50 and they are every 10/15 mins.
 We got there pretty early, had some lunch and looked into the shop. Things are quite expensive so if you are a big big fan then bring lots of cash! 
We waited 15/20 mins in the queue, then got taken into two separate rooms with two separate videos about the making of Harry and the Studios. It then opens up to the great hall and the tour began.


The Great Hall was incredible, it was amazing to be standing in the hall where everything was filmed.
There were then props and costumes from the different films as you walked through, it was so interesting to see how small Daniel Radcliff was when he first started.
I loved seeing the Common Rooms and Professor Umbridge's office!






Then you made your way outside to one of my favourite bits, The Knight Bus, Privet Drive, The Hogwarts Bridge and Godric Hollow, as well as sipping Butterbeer which is, by the way, the best!!! 
This time Privet Drive was actually open for you to go inside, it was so cute to see the living room and the layout of the house! 






There was also the Hogwarts Express which you could have a wander through, it showed the different sets in the train throughout the films!
There were more props and a visual effect section, right now they have 'Directing Dobby' where you stand and move your body to move him. You also got to see all the creatures/animals used in the film, my favourite being Buckbeak the Hippogriff!


Then there was Diagon Alley, which was another favourite part of the tour, again it was amazing to be standing where they filmed the movie! It is so impressive to see all the little detailing in all the shops.
The last part of the tour was the replica of Hogwarts, I believe it was used to film far away shots in the film! It was massive and had so many intricate detailing, from the trees to the building!
 



It took us maybe an hour to walk round, although the say the average is 3 hours,  so if you want to have proper look then you have plenty of time!!
I visited it before however, it was still very interesting, it brought my inner Harry Potter fangirl out and took me back to when I was younger!
If you are a Harry Potter fan then I highly recommend going, it is so worth it!
If you have any questions, just ask.

Like I said I am going to upload my Visa experience so if you have any questions, just let me know?

  9. I've been here a couple of times but not for a while so really want to go back. I haven't seen the Hogwarts Express yet which sounds amazing! I'm hoping to go this Christmas - they cover the castle in snow which is supposed to look fabulous!

  10. As if you had to travel all the way to London to get a visa, I didn't realise there wasn't one in Scotland! Good excuse to visit though! I love the Harry Potter tour but it's been about three years since I went so haven't seen the train, really wanna go back!

  19. I hope you have so much fun at AmeriCamp - what a great experience. I've always really wanted to go to the Harry Potter studios tour but never have been able to, i've been to the Warner Bros Studio Tour in LA and they have all the props in there as well so that was so cool!
