It was my sister's birthday so we decided to go there as she loves harry Potter, the queue was not that big in all fairness... We got in one hour earlier than we should of! Everything looked amazing and so well prepared to every detail! What most amazed me was in the end of the tour there is a room... More

I bought tickets as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend last year, so I had been waiting a long time to finally go and see it but I wanted to go when the snow was there. It's safe to say, this was the most magical experience ever. The whole film was brought to life right in front of you. The... More

If you're a Harry Potter fan ( hey potterheads ) you MUST go visit it !!! And if you don't cry or get excited at least once, then I don't understand what happened to me... Even if you're not a fan but are curious about how they made each movie, some scenes, the decoration, the buildings, the costumes, etc... Please... More

I grew up in the days the first few Gary potter books came out, and I've been captivated ever since. The studio tour had always been on the wish list but I'd always been put off due to the long waiting lists. Finally I was took here as a present, and can't believe I waited so long! Any Harry Potter... More

We booked in advance on internet, had no issue to collect tickets upon arrival. Had to wait fir appr. 1 hour to get in despite arriving according to instructions appr. 40 minutes... More

In awe, amazed, overwhelmingly fascinating, and pure visual overload!!! Be ready to walk, take tons of pictures, and be ready to spend some extra money for who doesn't want to see themselves riding the broomstick! The magic from the films comes not from the actors who get the credit, but the years of love and devotion put forth by the... More

I visited the place last year with my partner and as a big HP fan it was absolutely fantastic, we enjoyed having a look at everything you can think off to do with the Harry Potter flims, Well worth going and seeing especially near Christmas xx

Very interesting, loads to see, you have pretty much got to be a potter fan though, we spent about three hours, but could have spent much longer, gift shop is very pricey, food is good, butter beer is different, lots of potter nuts there, lots of Harry clones, but nice day out.
