Warner Bros Studio Tour - Harry Potter

I was so excited to go to the studio tour of Harry Potter, I am not actually a huge Harry Potter fan, in fact I couldn't tell you half of the characters names, let alone the storyline! But I did really enjoy all of the films and I think the behind the scenes people deserve this recognition. This tour is really fantastic for any prop/costume/scenic/animation/production etc enthusiast!


 
It was safe to say I was rather excited to arrive! (ahhh those three people that ruined my picture)
 

I don't want to ruin it for those of you that are yet to visit the studio tour so I am only showing you a selection of pictures which don't show everything!!! There are a lot of the costumes from all of the films on display. There are also sections showing make-up and wigs, as well as the process of the costume design to toiling to the finished garment. It's amazing that you're allowed to take pictures to be honest because if they had been included in the Hollywood costume exhibition at the V&A no way would you have been allowed to take any !

Everyone I've spoken to has mentioned the Butterbeer and has had strong opinions about it!! Personally I really liked it. My parents thought it was cream soda with ice cream - it tasted really sweet and was fizzy. In the book it is meant to be warm, so they haven't quite mastered this!!!!
What would an exhibition be without a gift shop? The gift shop is huge and really nicely displayed but ridiculously overpriced! However I did manage to find two things which came home with me - a chocolate frog keying which smells of chocolate and a teddy bear of Fang, Hagrids dog.

  4. Ahhh I can't wait to visit the HP studio tours! I am the biggest harry potter fan, so when I finally get to go in summer I will be buzzing with excitement! My friend who recently went also said the gift shop is really expensive, which I think is such a shame because it's not like the company needs to make any more money from the series and you're already paying so much to get in.. Love the blog :) Rachel xx

    1. I am sure you will love it :) Yes they are defintely rolling in money from all the merchandise made from the films.

      It would be quite cool if they made a making of for other films like Les Mis, twilight etc, it would be great to see the sets and costumes for these too and I am sure an easy way for all the studios to mkae more money for future films !

      Yes shops always seem to over priced - but they know they've got you and msst people leaving seemed to have managed to ahve bought something.

      Thanks for your lovely message xx
