Harry Potter Studio Tour London Tips
The Harry Potter Experience is the ultimate day out for everyone, young and old, who loves the books and movies and wants to see it all for themselves.
To get the most out of your adventure, remember these tips:
- You MUST book in advance. You can't just turn up on the day. Book early to bag your preferred time and date.
- Make sure you pick up a free Harry Potter passport when you arrive. They have instructions for a treasure hunt for the kids - and you can get them stamped at certain points throughout the tour. A great little souvenir.
- Don't miss the opportunity to ride a broom in front of the 'green screen.' You see yourself flying from London to Hogwarts!
- Halfway through the tour is an outdoor space where you can buy food and drinks, but you can bring your own packed lunch which is a good idea as it's cheaper and you won't have to spend time queuing for food.
- Set a budget for the gift shop as it's quite pricey. The clothes and costumes (from Gryffindor jumpers to Hogwarts robes) are massively popular, but expensive. You can often get Harry Potter clothes and goodies cheaper by buying them in advance through Amazon - see what's on offer here.
- Take your time as you go round the studio tour as there's much to see. Remember, the Harry Potter Studio Tour is made up of two studios - and once you've left the first one, bear in mind you can't go back.
