Hello readers, today I’m going to share with you my incredible experience at the London Warner Bross studios. When my sister Anna and I went to London we also visited the Warner Bross studios, where fans of the Harry Potter series, can go to have a look at the original sets of the iconic movies.
how everything began
Well readers, I’ve been a fan of the Harry Potter series since I can remember so visiting the Warner Bross studios was truly a dream come true for me. In this post I’ll try (at the best of my abilities ) to share with you the magical moments that I lived when I entered in the amazing wizarding world of Harry Potter, so if you’re a fan of the HP series and you want to know more about the London Warner Bross studios keep reading!
I’d like to start by saying that the studios are located right outside of London, and you can get there by car or by bus. We booked everything ahead including the bus that took us to the studios, and I would recommend you to do the same thing, because it’s the easiest way to get there if you’re not familiar with that area of London. Once we arrived we had to wait in line for about 20 minutes (that place is very crowded). When we were finally allowed in, a tour guide accompanied us in a theather hall where they showed us a clip, containing many outtakes from the HP movies and some interviews of the cast, it was very interesting, once the clip ended the screen was pulled up and the door of Hogwarts appeared (almost magically) behind it.
♡ The studios were Amazing, and I honestly think that words cannot do them justice, everything was so incredibly detailed and accurate, and of course as a devoted potterhead I viseted every attraction and I took lots of photos (I will try to include as many of them as I can in this post ♡ )
the dining hall
The dining hall was simply fabulous, it was arrenged with those beautiful halloween pumpkins hanging from the cealing, The tables were all set up and full of amazing cakes, bisquits and all sorts of sweets, and in that room there were also displayed the REAL costumes of Dumbledore, Professor Snape and Minerva McGranitt. Then we went in a room, where a lot of differten sets had been gathered together such as , Professor Snape’s office, the Gryffondor dorm room, the Burrow (specifically the Kitchen), Dolores Umbridge personal Office, Hagrid’s home and much more!
professor Snape’s office
I took many photos of this set because I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was… readers, this set was to die for, and while I was there I couldn’t stop thinking about ‘the half blood prince’ movie.
Then, I saw the stairs… (and I had to stop by and take a picture, ahahah)
the Griffondor dorm room
After that, we visited the dorm, needless to say that it was abolutely amazing (like everything else) and I think that I will use J.K Rowling words to discribe it.
Percy directed the girls through one door to their dormitory and the boys through another. At the top of a spiral staircase — they were obviously in one of the towers — they found their beds at last: five four-posters hung with deep red, velvet curtains. Their trunks had already been brought up. Too tired to talk much, they pulled on their pajamas and fell into bed.*Griffondor dorm room description taken from ‘Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone’
Now I don’t know about you but I absolutely adore the Weasley family, they are hilariuos, compassionate, brave, loving and loyal friends what more can someone ask for?
Dolores Umbridge’s office
This set was very small but it was amazing, the desk, the lamp, the chair, the dresses everything OBVIOUSLY in pink was simply fantastic.
This was probably one of my favourites
The Hogwarts express
Then we saw the train, and it was so cute, we actually got on the train and visited the inside of it.
“Welcome,” said Hagrid, “to Diagon Alley.”*”Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone”
Visiting Diagon Alley was probably my favourite part of the tour, I was mesmerized by the beauty of this set. So this set unlike the others was structured as a “street” and on both sides there were all the amazing shops that every HP fan knows, such as Ollivanders ( the iconic wand shop) and the Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes (also known as the Weasley & Weasley joke shop) .
