Harry Potter Experiences in London – A World of Wizadry Awaits

Does the sound of being a part of the Potterverse send chills down your spine? Relive the magic and fantasy when you visit the following English attractions.


Platform 9¾

Head to London's bustling King's Cross Station and come face to face with that iconic brick wall that marks the entryway to Platform 9¾, the gateway into the world of Harry Potter, Hogwarts and all things wonderful. King's Cross Station, being one of London's major stations, connects together six Underground lines; namely, Metropolitan, Victoria, Piccadilly, Hammersmith & City and Circle. So no matter where you are staying England's busy capital, you should easy be able to travel here. If you would rather drive to the attraction, however, the station might take you around a half hour's drive if you are staying at a Mayfair hotel such as one of the COMO Hotels & Resorts properties in London. Once you get to the station, walk over to the real life stations platforms of 9 and 10, and in on the wall in between, you will be confronted with a rear end of a trolley whose front half already seems to have disappeared through the wall. Pose beside it for some great photographs to add to your holiday collection!


The Wheels of the Bus

A luxurious minibus takes you around London from Temple Tube Station to King's Cross Station, stopping by certain filming sites used in films from the movie franchise. While journeying between the different spots, passengers are educated on how exactly the movies were created, and on the finer points of magic in the wizarding world. Since the tour comes to an end at King's Cross Station, you might as well head into the station in search of the real-life version of Platform 9¾ for a brilliant end to a magical day.


The Walk Around

Alternatively, if you would prefer to take in the capital's crisp air while touring, opt for the Harry Potter Walking Tour of London instead. Set off on foot on a Harry Potter themed London tour which takes you all around London to places which have been used when filming the Harry Potter franchise. These include the Millenium Bridge, Borough, Tate Modern, Big Ben and St. Paul's Cathedral.


Warner Bros. Studio

If you want to set foot on the actual film sets used in all the films, head to the Warner Bros. Studio in Watford. Here you will get to experience first-hand the model world that was created for the likes of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint to immerse themselves in and bring to life the wonderful world of Harry Potter. The filming sets you will wind at the studio here include but are not limited to those for notable iconic destinations in the movies such as Privet Drive, the Great Hall, Diagon Alley and Dumbledore's Study. Be prepared to part with around eighty or so quid if you've got around four people in your family. The sets are so intricate and meticulously crafted that you will really feel as if you have stepped into another world.
