Harry Potter Studio Tour!!!

My family all went on a trip to the Harry Potter Studio Tour yesterday- Amy and I were still exhausted from our camping weekend so we both slept all the way there and back! But the tour was awesome- I wasn't crazy-excited because I'm more a fan of the HP books rather than the films, but it was SO good. Well worth a trip :)

I thought I'd share a few pictures with you- a very select few as between our cameras we have about 400 pictures... there was a lot to see, and we got rather snap happy!


The Great Hall

Drinks for the Yule Ball

Some of Luna's unique accessories!

A hair and make up station!

Wands :)

The mirror of Erised

The Sorting Hat!!!!

Harry's Hogwarts letter

The Marauders Map

We stopped off for lunch, then BUTTERBEER!!! It was delicious- and the foam was really really thick :) It tasted like cream soda with a butterscotch/vanilla flavour, and the foam was kinda caramelish!


Some of Umbridge's Educational Decrees...



A tiny model of The Burrow (so cute!) and the Weasleys clock

The Knight Bus and wanted posters

Gringotts and Weasleys Wizarding Wheezes

This model of Hogwarts was enormous! It took up a whole (big) room- and every detail was included! Amazing :)


We all had an amazing time- I do recommend it to any Harry Potter fans! It was fascinating to see how much detail the sets and costumes are; there were parts of sets that were so beautiful created and didn't even end up in shot for any of the films!


Have you ever been? Would you like to?

  3. OMG so jealous! I love this, tysm for the pictures though I'm sure the only way to do the sets justice is see them yourself :P I felt privileged to see Univesal's Harry Potter World in Florida last summer but this is a billion times cooler!

    Butterbeer is delicious :D I have a mug as a memento haha.

    1. my pleasure- they definitely do look way cooler in real life (a lot of our pictures aren't great as the lighting was weird inside) I really really want to go there too- maybe I'll get there eventually!
