Warner Bros Studio Tour

This morning I got up at about 6:30am, had a shower and then quickly had my breakfast because there was a bus waiting to pick me up at 7:30am to to take me to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in Leavesden, London. You have no idea how long I've been waiting for this moment. I even packed my Gryffindor scarf and deathly hallows necklace so I could walk around looking like a complete bookworm. The whole experience was brilliant and I learnt and experienced so many crazy things, such as riding a broomstick and watching animatronics come to life.

It started off with us all sitting in a little theatre watching Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson giving a warm welcome. I'm not going to lie, my eyes teared up a little out of pure joy! Soon I found myself wondering the great hall and hearing the beautiful music of Harry Potter that filled my childhood. I also took the opportunity to try a cup of butterbeer which delighted my sweet tooth very nicely. It was really fascinating to watch the clips of how intricate the making of Buckbeak and the other creatures were. Warwick Davis was absolutely hilarious to watch and made it all very engaging.

I loved walking through Diagon Alley as well as seeing the Hogwarts Express, a newly added section. I got my picture taken at Platform 9¾ as well as riding a broomstick over Hogwarts! At the end of the tour you get to see a spectacular massive Hogwarts model. The detailing they put into Harry Potter is what amazed me the most. The effort was 110%. They even built props like the back room of Dumbledores office which was never shown in the movies just to help create the atmosphere.

I really commend Warner Bros. for doing this as I honestly had the most magical day. It wasn't just some boring museum you could go and visit, it felt like you were part of it and everything about it was perfect. The staff were really friendly too and were willing to help you take a photo and answer any questions. I could write a whole lot more about this but I don't want to spoil anything! I'm still so thrilled I got to spend the day.
