Platform 9 and 3/4

Head to King’s Cross, and push your cart and owl onto the platform just like Harry. Look for the queue of fellow First Years in the main departures hall.

The Great Hall

The Great Hall

The enchanted dining hall--recreated at Warner Bros. Studios--was inspired by the real dining hall at Oxford’s Christ Church College.

Hogwarts Express

Hogwarts Express

The real British steam locomotive (name: Olton Hall) is now a museum display at Warner Bros. Studios. All aboard for the 11 o'clock to Hogwarts!

The exterior shots for the Ministry of Magic were filmed at its rather appropriate real-life counterpart: Great Scotland Yard.

Planning Your Visit

How far away from London is the Warner Bros. Studio?

Warner Bros. Studio is located 20 miles north-west from central London, in Leavesden.

How do you get to the Warner Bros. Studio?

The closest railway station is Watford Junction, a quick 20-minute train ride from London's Euston Station. There are also plenty of shuttle buses that leave from central London. Transportation to and from London is often included in a Warner Bros Studio tour, so check out all your options before you book.

Can you take a Harry Potter tour without leaving London?

The world of Harry Potter is the world of London, meaning you can do a lot of sightseeing without ever leaving the city. Take a black cab or a night bus around town, and visit the film locations for the Ministry of Magic. And, of course, you can go to Kings Cross (a real-life train station) and take photos in front of Platform 9 and ¾.

What people are saying about London

This was a very interesting tour. Our guide Tom showed us where some of the scenes from the Harry Potter movies were located and then showed us scenes from the Harry Potter movies on an iPad. We also learnt a few things about the history of London on our travels. Just one small negative, the iPad screen was very cracked which detracted a bit from watching the movies but otherwise an excellent tour. Thank you Tom.

It was utterly brilliant! My girlfriend & I had so much fun! Tom was a great tour guide and he brought the whole thing to life. It was really nice as well to hear a lot about London’s history aside from the core Harry Potter mania and explore the city. Loved it.

Magical London: Harry Potter Guided Walking Tour Reviewed by Edward, 10/07/2020

This is a must for any Harry Potter fan, no matter your age. Even if you aren’t a super fan, you’ll be amazed at how fantastic this place is. The detail and thought that has gone into making this a remarkable tour is great.

Was amazing we where a family of 5 kids from 7 to 13 year old and they all loved it as well as us adults. From pick up to drop off our driver Could not have been any nicer.

Our tour guide Tom was awesome, a fountain of knowledge with an obvious love for Harry Potter, will definitely recommend to friends to come and share this great experience
