Full description

Depart London and journey towards Warner Bros. Studio to take "The Making of Harry Potter" tour. Located in former aircraft hangars in the residential district of Leavesden, the unique attraction recreates the magic of Harry Potter and all your favorite characters. Board the original "Hogwarts Express" train at a recreation of Platform 9¾, and explore the inside of the train carriage featured in the films. Take a selfie with a luggage trolley as it disappears through the station's brick wall.

The studio staff will reveal the behind-the-scenes secrets and unveil the intricate prosthetics and make-up that transformed actors into creatures in the blockbuster films. See sets from the original movies, and get a peek inside the college of Hogwarts during the 4-hour studio tour. Journey through attractions such as The Great Hall, Gryffindor Common, Hagrid's Hut, the Weasleys' kitchen, and the Ministry of Magic. Take a tour of the backlot and a special effects tour, see a model of Hogwarts Castle, and much more. Depart the Studios and journey to Oxford to explore the real college buildings, including the medieval Divinity School. Upon arrival in the university city founded in 1167, take a guided tour of the historical center and admire some of the most famous college buildings, cloisters, and quadrangles. Delve down alleyways and into chapels, look inside dining halls and across cobblestone squares under the shadows of the legendary "dreaming spires." Enter the hallowed heartland of academia, including the Bodleian Library, Radcliff Camera, Sheldonian Theatre, and other select colleges.

Our guide, Valentina, was excellent. She kept us posted on what we were looking at during the drive, she added humor along the way to keep to keep us engaged, but she also gave us our personal time to just take it all in. Our driver, Terry, was also excellent. Driving a huge bus in London can be scary and he made it look easy.

Highly recommended when you don't have time and want to do both. Awesome Warner Bros studio! It's like you're right there in the movie. For the fans, 4 hours in the studio is not enough, it would be better to do only the studio and not the whole day. The guide Edward great too!

Les studios sont superbes un incontournable pour les fans d Harry Potter! Oxford est une très jolie ville la visite guidée est sympa mais un peu dommage de ne pas faire plus de lieux de tournage nous ne sommes rentrés que dans « l infirmerie/salle de bal » et nous n avons rien visité d autre
