Almost everyone I know has been on to visit the Harry Potter sets at Warner Bros. Studios so in a bid to make sure I got to go sooner rather than later, I’ve been hinting to my OH all year about wanting to go on my birthday. I didn’t think he’d picked up on it until I opened my birthday card Friday morning and found tickets to go and see Harry Potter! I couldn’t believe it! I was so excited – I could barely contain myself!

It was AWESOME! I took so many photos, I’ve added them to my Flickr page, but here are a few of my favourites.

Under the Stairs




Handwritten letters


HogwortsIt was brilliant. Seeing the sets up close, the detail in the costumes, the secrets behind the filming and walking through the Great Hall. I even got to open the doors to the Great Hall because it was my birthday! I was so chuffed! I couldn’t quite believe what I was seeing – I’ve watched the Harry Potter films many times so seeing everything in real life was really amazing. I didn’t want the tour to end, but it finally did and I bought myself a Harry Potter pencil from the gift shop – what else?! (Tho, I was hugely tempted by one of the Hogwart jumpers!)

It’s a really inspirational place to go, to think that it’s all there because of the idea that JK Rowling had. I would quite happily go again and again, though I probably wouldn’t have the butterbeer again, it’s a bit sweet for my tastes! Have you been? What did you think?

  1. BRILLIANT I am SO jealous I want to go too, but all my hinting and complaining isn’t working – must try harder 🙂 great pictures and sounds like you had a marvellous time! I especially love the knitting picture… :p

    • Jenny, it is so brilliant! I just want to go back! Spent all of yesterday rewatching the films, looking out for bits that we’d seen. I’ll definitely be going back – You must hint harder 😉

  2. We went as a family last Summer. My Hubby and son are huge Potter fans, I really like the books and films – but my daughter was quite reluctant. However, she is studying Media at college and once we got there she enjoyed the whole thing from that aspect. We thought it was fabulous!

    • I think it’s amazing to see all the different aspects of the films, from the high tech green screen work to the hand written letters and labels. Simply amazing!
