The Making of Harry Potter
Recently, we finally managed to visit the Warner Bros. Studio Tour near London – it’s the place where you can see the making of Harry Potter. As a fan of both the books and the films this was definitely a magical place to visit.

There were a lot of different parts to the Warner Bros Tour, much more than I expected. After looking around some of the sets and the outdoor parts (where you can try butter beer) there was a section which showed how some of the creatures were made – seen here was a mandrake plant.
One of the most impressive parts of the tour was the Hogwarts model. I had seen pictures of this but I didn’t imagine it would be this size. The attention to detail was incredible.
Many, many wands.
If you’re a fan of Harry Potter and can make a trip to the studios I would highly recommend it. It’s a set of stories that I have grown up with and it was wonderful to see how some of the films had been put together.
