It’s time! During my visit to London a few weeks ago we also went to theWarner Bros Studio Tour! And it was amazing and wonderful and I took a million pictures. So this post isn’t for you if you hate Harry Potter, pictures in general or don’t want to get spoiled about the tour. SPOILER ALERT.
There was a thing called “Hogwarts in the snow” at the studios which meant CHRISTMAS EVERYWHERE. (I honestly died when I read about this before we left. I LOVE CHRISTMAS. AND HARRY POTTER. SO PERFECT.) So there was a giant tree as soon as you got in there.
And then there was a sweet lookin’ Ford Anglia.While we waited in line we got to look at the cupboard under the stairs. And after waiting in a room for a little while and watching a film about Harry Potter we got to the doors to the Great Hall. Like the actual Great Hall. Oh and also gigantic Christmas wreaths on the golden doors. Too amazing to handle.
The Great Hall was AMAZING. And also it was filled with kids in school uniforms (they even had like crimson and gold ties, GRYFFINDOR MUCH?!) and Christmas trees.
Oh and food. So much food.
But mostly just amazing Christmas decorations. <3
And teachers. IT’S ALL SO BEAUTIFUL. Sadly you weren’t allowed to stay in the Great Hall for as long as you wanted, but it was amazing anyway. So we moved on to the next room, and the rest of the tour was as your own pace which was AMAZING. There were models of the Great Hall.
Props and clothes. LOOK AT THEM. And then the Goblet of Fire which was on “fire” and shot out a name and everything. This was apparently a new thing that they had just introduced, it was pretty great. The boys dormitory was all Christmassy! But look at that fabric around the beds! Isn’t it the best? I want it on everything.WANDS.Fat Lady!Mirror of Erised. AMAZING. I saw me hanging out with Johanna at the Harry potter studio tour. Invisibility cloak! HOW DOES IT COVER THE THREE OF THEM? No one knows. Gryffindor common room! I want those walls. UGH I WANT EVERYTHING. They had the best Christmas tree ever. Hahaha this was a fake fan moment as we didn’t quite know where this giant clock thingy is from? To be fair though we mostly just listen to the books. I was like “Sherbet lemon” and it was just like “…”. 🙁IT’S A PORTKEY. It was so beautiful though?! Like seriously.
There were other beautiful things like the Golden Snitch and Deluminator and Time-Turner and and and everything.
The potions area was SO beautiful. I want my house to look like this.
Just look at it. <3There were paintings all around.
And we got to see how they make safe fire! Lights and smoke!And then there was Hagrid’s house!And the Burrow. <3Including a self-knitting blanket. Is that a blanket? Or a gigantic scarf? Horcruxes!The Diadem was seriously beautiful.Borgin and Burke’s!
Umbridge’s office! And it was all just jumbled together like this!There was Filch’s favourite wall.
And then the Hogwarts Express. You got to go inside it but it was dark and the aisle was really narrow so I couldn’t really get a pic of it. At the end of the train you got to look inside where Harry and Ron had all the candy.There was a tiny shop there as well. With a Christmas tree! And then we had a break and hade some Butterbeers. They tasted like caramel sauce and melted ice cream. With bubbles. Not the best, tbh. A nice lady offered to take a picture of us drinking them though. So touristy!But then we got to go outside and visit Privet Drive!
And some other things outside! You also got to sit in a Ford Anglia haha. We saw Fawkes! So beautiful.
And DIAGON ALLEY. Which was amazing, obvi.But the best part was the gigantic Hogwarts model. COVERED IN SNOW BECAUSE CHRISTMAS. It was so great I can’t even. Just look at it:
People for scale.
And that was the end of the tour. And lastly we just looked at amazing (but expensive) things in the shop. I bought a few little things though but I’m going to show them to you some other time.
This was SO amazing and I really really want to go back.
Have any of you guys been there?
