The Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour

During the summer holidays, in August, hubby, the boy and I went to The Making of Harry Potter Studio Tour. The tour is in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, just outside of London, which is where the films were made.

We are all Harry Potter fans – of both the books and the films, and was really excited to go on this tour. It was an opportunity to see the sets, costumes and props from the films! It was simply amazing…to see things from the film up close and personal was awesome. The attention to detail which you don’t even realise whilst watching was astounding. The tour lasted around 3 hours, it’s self-guiding so you just wander through each section and you get a breathtaking ending as well. A model of Hogwarts, which I stood and looked at for quite a while. I was just in awe of it!

I’m going to share with you some of the photos that I took during the day and the rest, if you would like to see more are in a set on my Flickr.
