We visited the studios while they were having a special winter event – meaning everything was covered in tinsel, snow or other wizardly decorations.
I haven’t included a lot of pictures, as I didn’t want to reveal the cool things hidden at the studios!
I had to pop in this picture of the entrance to Dumbledores’ office though – very cool!
And of course the potions classroom – Professor Slughorn’s classroom that is.
After a peek around all the different sets and a green screen broomstick experience (which is well worth doing – SO COOL!) I took a quick trip into the Ministry of Magic..
I’m cringing a bit as I write this – I didn’t realise just how touristy all these photos are!
Another quick snap in Privet Drive..
And one in Diagon Alley – This set was absolutely amazing! I felt like a real Hogwarts student. (cringe again)
Skipping over all of the other exciting things that we came across on the tour, it ended with a walk around the inside of Ollivander’s Wand shop.
Each of the wand boxes had a different name on them! I can’t imagine how much time it took to make each of the sets there – they were all so detailed and perfect.
I tested out my invisible wand ..
After being at the studios for 7 hours in total (the gift shop took a while to look around) we needed sustenance – in the form of authentic butterbeer and a not-so-authentic hotdog.
As you can see, I always eat my food with elegance and dignity.
That’s all for now – I would strongly recommend a visit to the studios! Whether you’re a Harry Potter enthusiast like myself or you simply enjoyed the movies, it makes for an amazing day out.
I will definitely be going back for another round!
