Laura and I went to the Warner Bros. Studios at the start of this year and it was amazing! I had prepared by watching all of the films before and after Christmas (and the last three in one night) and was so excited to see the different sets, props and costumes from the movies.
At thirty three pounds a ticket, I was worried that it wouldn't be worth it, but we spent five hours walking around the Studios and never got bored! Even the food, though still a little pricey, was pretty good, and the butterbeer, though not what I expected, was interesting.
The tour was well laid out, with a first grand entrance into the Great Hall and a final walk around the incredible scale model of Hogwarts and the stacks of wand boxes with each cast and crew member's name. We learnt about the different animals used in the films, the secrets behind flying on brooms, and the effort that went into making every magical creature, to name a few insights into the making of the movies. And we got to visit Diagon Alley!!
I was so inspired during the whole tour and couldn't wait to start re-reading the books once I got home! I decided to listen to the audiobooks instead and am so pleased I did! Stephen Fry does an amazing job of reading them!
So if you're thinking of a trip to the Studios but are unsure if it will be worth the price, believe me; it will be.
I'll even go again, if I get the chance! I hear the Hogwarts Express is coming this year...
