It’s no secret that the beautiful city of London has a rich cultural heritage. Whether you’re a fan of its ample historical buildings or impressive art collections, there’s no shortage of activities for locals and tourists to enjoy.
However, if you’re looking for something a bit less traditionalist than trips to museums and art galleries, then there is something a little more magical on offer in the form of a visit to the Warner Bros studio. Just twenty miles away from the heart of London, this mystical wonderland is one of the capital’s best-kept secrets.
How do we get there?
Although there are plenty of package deals available to ensure you get to the studio in style, as it is located just outside of London it’s easy to find public transport to get you there.
Simply take the train from London Euston to Watford Junction where a shuttle bus will deliver you right to the studio entrance. Alternatively, take a coach from central London or hop in the car. You’ll find the studio just three miles from the M1 and M25.
Warner Bros Studio Tour
Whether you’re an avid fan of the books or are simply fascinated with film, the chances are you’ve heard of Harry Potter. Perfect for the young (and the young at heart) the tour will give you the chance to learn films facts, admire the characters’ costumes and visit the amazing sets including this scaled down construction of Hogwarts castle.
What can we do once we arrive?
For fans, little will come close to the feeling of being on the set of one of their favourite movies. Independent exploration of the authentic sets from the movies is encouraged and the family is sure to love discovering Dumbledore’s office, Diagon Alley and Gringotts Wizarding Bank firsthand.
However, for those more interested in the behind the scenes magic, there are plenty of opportunities to learn about special effects and make-up and see how creatures like Dobby are brought to life on the screen. Plenty of the exhibits are interactive and there are tonnes of fantastic events to get involved in throughout the year.
This tour of the Warner Bros studio is one of the best options for those looking to try something a little bit different during their stay in London. Beat the queues and book your Warner Bros Studio tour online today!
