When J.K Rowling started writing Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in an Edinburgh café, she probably never imagined her book would one day be recreated on the big screen, for millions of people to enjoy. Today, the Harry Potter Studios tour is enormously popular and during busy times, it can be difficult to find a free slot. The studios are vast and there is a huge amount to see on the tour, so it pays to plan your visit in advance, including booking tickets!
Unless you live locally, it may be worth booking overnight accommodation so you can make the most of your trip to the Harry Potter Studios. There is accommodation nearby to suit all budgets and central London is only a short train ride away. Book your accommodation online when you look for vouchercloud Harry Potter Studios voucher codes and special offers.
Digital guides are available to enhance your studio tour experience. These can be booked in advance. You may also wish to watch the Harry Potter movies before you take a tour of the Harry Potter Studios; that way you can make the most of your day out. Don’t forget to sample some Butterbeer and Butterbeer flavoured ice cream. It’s delicious!
