Harry Potter and the Overexcited Tourists

Harry Potter Studio Tour

A couple of weeks ago, we hopped on a train up to Watford to immerse ourselves for the day in the complete delight that is The Harry Potter studio experience. I want to go back already.

Admittedly, I am a big fan of the books and films, and vividly remember making my Dad drive me to the local bookshop to get book 3 the morning it came out. But even so, they have truly done an incredible job. There is so much to see (these pictures are only a tiny percentage of what’s on show), and the detail on everything is amazing. Every bit of the love, creativity and souls of the crew have been poured into the props over 10 years, and it really shows.

The wigs, wand boxes, costumes letters, magazines, sets, flying cars are all spectacular and nothing quite prepares you for the opening of the Great Hall doors, or the unbelievable Hogwarts model. Just go. Please.
