I took 336 photographs. I don’t know how or why but I managed to.
To sum up, the tour was amazing. The first part involves watching a small clip about how the story was published. You are then taken into a larger cinema room to watch a short film about what goes on behind the cameras – you are then transported onto the set by a simple yet magical effect. It’s a great touch.
There are two large studios named aptly J and K, filled with all the scenes you can imagine from the films including the Potions lab, the Great Hall, the Common Room, the Boys Dorm, Dumbledore’s Office even the House that Harry grew up in! There are brooms, bikes, cars, costumes, wigs, prosthetics, drawings, huge models, you can even have a taste of the infamous Butterbeer! If you’re brave enough, unlike me, you can put on a robe and try flying a broom over the City of London (through CGI obviously).
I won’t say anymore, as you really need to experience it yourself – I’ll let the pictures convince you (not all 336 though).
Even if you are not a Harry Potter fan, it really is fascinating to see the sets for yourself.
