Flashback Friday: Harry Potter Studio Tour

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not been to harry potter studio tour then this will give away some of the magic.

So 3 summers ago when I did my first trip through Europe with one of my best friends. Our first stop was london - and mostly for this tour. As massive HP nerds it was a dream come true.

It took us an overground train and then the "night bus"- a service offered by the studio tour to get there.

When we arrived first we were ushered into the studio and shown a movie and chatted with before they led us around the corner. Once around the corner, we saw the Great Hall doors. Mind-blowing!

The next sections included a collection of sets from the great hall, snape's office, potion's classroom and more. It was self led so we just took our time going to see everything and having our mind blown.

After the interior was an exterior portion with private drive, the bridge, the night bus, the flying car, and a cafe that sells butterbeer.

Back inside was a look at lots of behind the scenes portions and looks at special effects. It then turned the corner into real life diagon alley!! WOAH.

Following that was the most stunning part- the real model of the Hogwarts. I can't deny the fact that I burst into tears. It was magical in every sense.

We finished off at the gift shop to get some chocolate wands and post cards. Quite a perfect day.

If you like HP- DO IT DO IT DO IT
