Ever since we heard that the Harry Potter studio was being open to the public my sisters and I decided that we MUST go and visit for ourselves. The franchise has been a part of us since my litter sister was 11 years old – the same age as Harry when the first film was released (even though in the book terms he was born in 1982 like me). So my other sister Tracey (the middle one) and I took Tara (the bubby) as a birthday treat. I live in London, they both live in Ipswich so I missed out on the road trip, instead I met them at Watford station where we then hit the road together to Leavesden…
What is amazing is that you can take as many pictures as you like, it’s encouraged…just not videos as that would reveal the magic to all, and let’s face it, you need to experience it for yourself.
Below is a slideshow of just a handful of the things I got to see, but they included walking through the great hall (of course with no ceiling), seeing a small ceiling which was used (with camera trickery) for scenes when you did see the parts of the ceiling, moving objects, costumes, hair pieces/wigs, the triple decker bus, and… we got to drink some Butterbeer!
The Harry Potter Studio Tour is open now, tickets are £28 for adults and £21 for kids (under 4’s are free). For more information visit: www.wbstudiotour.co.uk
