Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour + Tips!

I'm sure I've made it painfully clear how obsessed I am with Harry Potter, so once I got to London for my study abroad program, I made sure to buy tickets to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour. I got to go during the last week of my program, so it was a great way to end my time in London! Since I finally have some down time here in Spain, I thought it would be the perfect time to write a post about my time there, share all of the photos I took, and give you some tips on going! Without further ado, here they all are!

-Buy your tickets ASAP! As soon as you know the tentative date in which you will be going, buy your tickets - I had to buy mine a month in advance, and even that I was pushing it.
-If you get there really early like I did, kill some time in the gift shop and make a plan of what you want to buy in case you're in a time crunch afterwards! My friend and I did this, and we're really glad we did because we only had about 20 minutes after the tour to buy souvenirs in the shop because they were closing.
-Take your time during the tour, and pay attention to small details! There are a lot of cool tidbits of information everywhere.
-Don't be afraid to look like a dorky tourist - take all of the pictures! I'm so glad I brought my camera and took cheesy pictures of myself in front of platform 9 and 3/4 because I will treasure it forever!
-Keep aside some money for souvenirs, there are some good ones! But at the same time, don't waste your money on things you could buy cheaper on Amazon.
-Make sure to sit down at the little cafeteria about midway through! It'll be really nice to rest your feet, and you can have some Butter Beer while you relax! They also had Butter Beer ice cream when I went, and it was so amazing.
-The souvenir Butter Beer cup is only about a pound extra, so if you want a cheaper keepsake from the studios, go for that!

I'm so glad I got to go to the tour, and it was the best way to end my London study abroad. I'm also really glad I'm getting this post up right around the time that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child came out! Everything is kept in great condition, the staff is really great, and you really do feel like you're in the movies. If you find yourself in London, I highly recommend going, especially if you're a Harry Potter fan!

I also vlogged my experience, so make sure to check that out!

Are you a Harry Potter fan?

Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)
