The UK’s answer to Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter is the Making Of Harry Potter. Nestled away just outside of London in a quintessentially English town lies the Warner Brothers Studios.
It was where the Harry Potter films were made and is now home to the Making of Harry Potter. On this award-winning tour, you can experience the sets, the props, the costumes, the creature effects, the SFX, and the art department.
Wander through the magnificent Great Hall, muster all of your courage and walk through the Forbidden Forest, try on your house cloak, and test out your flying skills on a broom.
From mid-November until the end of the year, you can enjoy Hogwarts in the snow as well as the Yule Ball from the Goblet of Fire film.
If you’re a Harry Potter fan then you have to make sure you don’t miss this one.
