Meet Your Fellow Potterheads

Your executive coach bus will pick you up outside the entrance of the Gloucester Road Tube Station. Once on the bus, you’ll meet your expert guide along with your small group of fellow Harry Potter lovers. It’s a quick, one-hour drive to Warner Bros Studio, where the wonderful world of Harry Potter is waiting for you!

Warner Bros Studio - The Making of Harry Potter

For four glorious hours, you’ll explore the movie sets where Harry Potter was brought to life and discover iconic props used during filming. All the while, you’ll learn behind-the-scenes, movie-magic secrets of how the enchanting world of Hogwarts was brought to the big screen.

Walk through Hogwarts Great Hall, take a spin in Ron Weasley’s flying car, and gaze inside Hagrid’s Hut. You’ll also stroll down the cobblestoned streets of Diagon Alley and spend time in the Gryffindor Common Room.

All Aboard the Hogwarts Express

Next, head to the backlot where you will spend time in the Dursley House, stop by Harry’s parents’ house at Godric’s Hollow, and see the famous, triple-decker Knight Bus in person!

Finally, you will make your way to Hogsmeade Station, where you'll have the opportunity to board the iconic Hogwarts Express and experience so much more! The exhibit will immerse you in the world of Harry Potter with authentic reproductions of the filming sets. You'll learn about prosthetics and model making, and you can even join in the movie magic by recording yourself riding a broomstick!

You’ll also have a chance to brave the Forbidden Forest before making your way to the last stop of the tour.

Step Inside Gringotts Wizarding Bank

Finish off your journey through the captivating world of Harry Potter at Gringotts Wizarding Bank, a new addition to Warner Bros Studio, and the tour’s largest expansion ever. Your jaw will drop as you wander through marble pillars, shimmering chandeliers, and original costumes worn by Goblin bankers. Uncover the vault of Bellatrix Lestrange, where you’ll find the Sword of Gryffindor, along with Helga Hufflepuff’s cup, mounds of golden Galleons, silver Sickles, and bronze Knuts.

Before you leave, make sure you take a photo surrounded by your newfound treasure!

Travel to Oxford

After spending the morning immersed in Harry Potter’s magical world, it’s time to trade in the Hogwarts Express for your executive coach. Next on the agenda is a fascinating afternoon in Oxford, just over an hour from Warner Bros Studio.

Follow your guide through the charming streets of Oxford before arriving at the city’s historic university. Founded in 1167, the University of Oxford is renowned for its connection to the literary world, with a wide range of poets, authors, statesmen, and inventors that have all claimed Oxford as their home. Not only Harry Potter movies, but also The Chronicles of Narnia, Alice in Wonderland, and The Lord of the Rings are other beloved classics that have derived from Oxford.

Enter Divinity School

Your guide will lead you on a fascinating walking tour of Oxford, where you’ll take in the city’s breathtaking architecture. One of your afternoon highlights in Oxford is the entrance to the Divinity School, a place steeped in cinematic wizardry, as it served as the infirmary in the Harry Potter films.

The Divinity School makes multiple appearances throughout the film series, such as when Harry breaks his arm during a thrilling Quidditch match in the first installment, or when Hermione falls victim to petrification in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," among other memorable scenes. This is your opportunity to step into the very locations where these magical moments were brought to life, and to discover the real-world inspiration behind the wizarding world of Harry Potter. Don't miss your chance to embark on this spellbinding journey!

After some free time to explore the gorgeous university grounds on your own, you and your intimate group will be driven back to London.

We had a great time touring the studio and Oxford! Luke drove safely and Tony shared his vast knowledge with us on the way to the studio. Seeing how they made the Harry Potter's was really interesting and fun! Chris gave us an excellent history lesson about Oxford and the buildings were breathtaking! It was a great day!

The instructions were easy to follow to meet our tour guide. The coach/bus was large, comfortable and clean. Our driver, John, was very kind and cordial. Our Tour Guide, Mike, did a fabulous job of sharing history and stories in a conversational manner that made it easy to listen and understand. He was quite kind and full of knowledge. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the WB studios and highly recommend it for any Harry Potter fans. We also enjoyed our time at Oxford University and would love to visit again in the future.
