Harry Potter Studio Tour: Take 3

My brother and sister-in-law turned thirty two years ago and our present to them was tickets to the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour, accompanied by us.

Having presented them with acceptance letters to Hogwarts – made by amending a template found on Pinterest – we found a mutually convenient date and booked the tickets. Unfortunately, due to snow, the date had to be changed and we finally did the trip at the beginning of February – only a year and half late!

My nephew, Arlo, also joined us for the day. To make sure Joe and Mel got the most of their present, Dave and I looked after the little one for a while. He is genuinely the cutest, calmest child and was a dream to look after! Plus baby cuddles are the best, aren’t they?!

Although I’d been twice before, it was still as exciting as the first time. Dave and I went when everything was Christmassy and therefore, it was good to see the ‘normal’ studio tour again. I also found it interesting there were many new props and outfits on show, nestled around items we’d previously seen.

We slowly worked our way around the attraction, taking it all in and making sure Mel and Joe were enjoying themselves. There’s masses to see at the Studio tour and plenty of interactive bits too, like Quidditch practice, train rides and more.

The main new attraction for Dave and I was the Forbidden Forest. It was great! Although if you’re petrified – excuse the pun – of spiders, you might want to avoid looking up at certain points…

Butterbeers were included in the gift and thus, after the Hogwarts Express section, we enjoyed cups in the cold winter sun during a much-needed break.

Another new spot for us was inside 4 Privet Drive. In particular, the Dursely’s front room, which was full of Harry’s Hogwarts letters.

Last but definitely not least, we came to the showstopper. The miniature Hogwarts. Like the last two visits, I was completely and utterly in awe of this incredible model. It’s absolutely fascinating, from the amount of detail to the fact it’s in scale. Amazing!

Visiting the Harry Potter Studio Tour for the third time was magical. And now the news that Gringotts Bank is coming has broken, I’ve already admitted that I would 100% go again. It may be Lestrange but Siriusly, I would. There’s nothing Ron with that, right? OK, I’ll stop with these Riddikulus puns now…
