It's been more than one year since the last instalment of Harry Potter film series but quiz any HP fan and you will see that story of the boy with a scar is etched in their memories forever. So, what can be a better option than to re-live those moments that introduced us to an amazing world of magic? Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter is the perfect place to entertain yourself with your little monkeys this winter.
Leavesden Studios near Watford, Hertfordshire has been magically transformed into the world of Hogwarts and it sucks you right into the world of wizardry and witch craft. Just like Harry, your journey starts as soon as you enter the great hall of Hogwarts where you can see professor Dumbledore, Snape and McGonagall (replicas of course) welcoming you. Next to it is the Gryffindor Boys' room, where you can feel the many moments where Harry and Ron were plotting some inconceivable plans.
Saunter around the Weasley house where you can see carrots chopping by itself or wander through the cobbled pathways of Diagon alley, inspect Dumbedore's bookshelves or peer through the dark corner where Lord Voldmort and his favourite death-eaters lends a vicious charm. You can also see Hagrid's motor bike, Harry's broomstick and the philosopher's stone up, close and personal. What's more? You can even play a mean game of Quidditch or fly the flying car!
The highlight of the tour would definitely be the Hogwarts model, a mammoth of a model built to a 1:24 scale. There are around 3,000 fibre optic lights fitted inside that are turned on as the night dawns. The attention to details will leave you a gasping hence it comes as no surprise that it was used in the exterior shots in the first six films. Hogwarts would not be special if it were not for the many fantastical creatures? In here you can see the cutesy Dobby and the fierce Aragog.
