What To Expect
Select your desired departure time when booking. Then, on the day, depart central London by air-conditioned coach and ride to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter.
Pull up at the studios and go inside to explore the spectacular sets used in the much-loved Harry Potter movies.
Enjoy free time to stroll around as you wish. View some of the beautifully crafted costumes and props—such as Hagrid’s motorbike—that were used to bring J.K. Rowling’s stories to vivid on-screen life.
Unravel the behind-the-scenes secrets of many of the special effects and marvel at the animatronics that made sets such as Dumbledore’s office and the Great Hall so spellbinding. Come face to face with the fabled Platform 9 ¾, and snap pictures of the baggage trolley as it vanishes through the platform wall. See the Hogwarts Express steam train, browse the potion shops along cobbled Diagon Alley, and experience the green-screen technology used in the movies with a brief ride on a broomstick, just like the cast.
Other must-sees include Hagrid’s Hut and the Gryffindor common room. And while you’re here, perhaps take time out to snap up the movie-themed souvenirs (own expense) at the gift shop as mementos of your visit.
After your visit, join back up with your coach and conclude with a drop-off at the original start point.

Seeing the sets gave the story more meaning for me. The tour lasts a bit over 2 hours but it seems so quick
An experience that is sure to fulfill all the longings for the Wizarding World
Gabe_M, Jan 2023
Being able to walk in the very footsteps of the actors when they were making the films was truly a marvel. The legitimacy and devotion that was put into these films was undeniable and being able to experience the studio firsthand was a true gift. Thanks to JK Rowling, the actors, Warner bros., and all the brilliant workers for making the wizarding world a reality. Whether Muggle, half-blood, or pure-blood the doors are open all the same so come as you are into this magical world.

Transfer well organized, friendly people and the studios are just amazing! 10/10 would recommend to any Harry Potter fan
Too expensive for the services provided
saurabh_o, Jan 2023
The price was lot more than what we were expecting. The coach was late by 20m minutes. It was a simple/routine coach and not a luxury coach as was mentioned.
The extra price was just to pick and drop us from Victoria coach station
Stephanie_H, Jan 2023
We loved learning about how all of the characters and creatures were
made. It was also neat to see all of the sets and props.
Must-do, especially for fans!
Amber_H, Jan 2023
The tour was very smooth, we went to the bus station and it was very easy to find. They had our names on a list and we were confirmed right away. The bus driver Choi was amazing, super nice, and absolutely hilarious. The bus dropped us off right by the entrance and gave us our tickets - again,. super smooth. The HP studios were an absolute delight and you could honestly spend several hours in there. Even though we weren't reading everything or watching all of the videos, it took us about three hours to walk through. It was nice because we took a break halfway through at the cafe and still had time to look through the gift shop at the end. This is a must-do in London! Especially if you are a Harry Potter fan.

Dreams come true. I promised my children that they would see the studio of the favorite movie and book! They’re happy and so I am. The viator company driver was an amazing guy. The trip was safe. When I realized that it is so far, i was happy with my decision to arrange a trip.
Great tour! Definitely a must
Victor_M, Jan 2023
This tour was amazing. The studio tour was amazing, my girlfriend and I had a blast! Transportation to the studio was simple, go there 20 minutes prior to departure and found the gate easily to check in and board the bus. Would definitely recommend to any traveler.
Nicholas_F, Jan 2023
Been a Harry Potter fanatic since a kid and converted my girlfriend. We were stoked and blown away to experience all the real sets and learnt he processes the went into making the movie. The only bad thing was the gift shop. They were out of a lot of sizes and were hoping they have more and simpler clothing items like crew necks and hoodies.

Had a great day wish we'd had more time though, enjoyed watching Harry Potter on our way home excellent touch
Excellent, but the dirver k
Marian_C, Dec 2022
Thw experience was very good overall.
But an incident with the driver attitude, who was late picking up, and drove with high speed and power brakes, dissapoint us. Please, do not let trqnsportation to impell the experience.
Great overall experience!
Michael_Y, Dec 2022
This was better than expected for all of us. We went in with no expectations, and frankly we were blown away. I recommend doing the same thing!
The visit we booked through viator gave us about 4 hours of time in the actual Harry Potter studio before our bus would turn around and leave for London again (and yes they WILL leave you), which wasn't quite enough time for us, but it was close. I think we could have spent another hour or two in the tour in total.
We did take a sit down lunch which probably ate 45m - 1hr of our time, but you are hungry and need it, and it didn't take super long to do that as the lines moved relatively fast and the food came out relatively quickly.
Alternatively, we could have budgeted our time a bit better and left more time for the back half of the tour. I would recommend trying to do the same -leave more time for the back half of the tour.
We were also kept waiting for about 15-20 mins on the bus once we arrived, after we were greeted, and I'm realizing now we would have liked that time back, so that's the main reason I'm deducting 1 star.
All in all, it's a great way to get over to see Harry Potter and we all felt it was very much worth the price.
Read the little sign placards for the exhibits as much as you can!
The coach was nice and comfortable and a safe driver, and it was very nice to be able to sleep some on the ride
Yes you should

Harry Potter Studios experience
Julian_W, Dec 2022
Good bus service to studios. Our guide was kind and helpful. Studios were amazing. We had plenty of time (2-3 hours) to see everything before getting back on the bus to London.
Harry Potter was brilliant, transfer service a let down
Allison_B, Dec 2022
Harry Potter was brilliant, however the return coach was not at the designated place of pick up to take us back to Victoria Station and after over 30 minutes of standing in minus2 degrees, we booked an Uber. This was very frustrating given how expensive the coach transfer was, but with 2 children, it was just too cold to wait any longer. I would hope we will be refunded as the same company had a driver who was to return 1:30 later sat there and could have switched the routes around to save us all standing around so long in the freezing cold.
Good but don’t have the food!
althornton94, Dec 2022
The food was a definite no go and the reason I would knock off one star. The food was piled up in the kitchen going cold and the chips were soggy. The burger was poor quality meat and the lettuce was everywhere. For a £13 burger (and a £2.10 bottle of WATER) it was a major rip off. Seeing as the tour itself was expensive. However everything else was great.
The gringotts bank was amazing and it wasn’t too busy by this point in the tour. We were never rushed along and the staff were all so friendly.
EMMA_H, Dec 2022
Love all the experiences. My wish comes true (my wish for 4 years ago). Love the cafeteria as if we are dining with Harry Potter in Hogwart Hall.
We had lots of fun and...
Jonne_E, Dec 2022
We had lots of fun and the bus rides were easy and comfortable :) The experience was great for Harry Potter fans.
Great half day excursion

Premium Tours Staff went out of their way to help us amidst flight cancellation after flight cancellation. Thank you!
Taegan_B, Dec 2022
We were impressed by how easy the transportation to and from the tour was! Once we got to the park, we felt like we had the perfect amount of time to complete the tour and not feel rushed or feel like we were killing time. Loved it all!
