Back in April, Kim and I went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour - yes, it's taken me this long (and a fair bit of nagging from Kim :P ) to get around to posting about it. In case you didn't know, we are both
We went by train, and hitched a ride on a shuttle bus - The Studio Tour London is more of a general term, it's in Watford, which is a little way out of town.
Somebunny's petting a thestral!
Even the foyer was awe-inspiring.
Harry's cupboard! With the toy soldiers and everything. Perfect.
We had a little talk by one of the tour guides, and watched some footage showing the journey from book-to-film. There was a bit of squealing from both of us when we spotted my silly little face on screen, at the Hallows pt.2 premiere! And then the tour started properly.
The Great Hall was amazing, and this goes for everywhere as well, the level of detail in everything is unbelievable.
The Great Hall is the only part of the tour that you're limited on the time you can spend in there, everywhere else you can wander through freely at your own pace, which is lovely. There was plenty of time to take photos and have a little sit down and enjoy the views
Some of Luna's gorgeous clothes.

The Gryffindor boys dormitory!
It's been a while since I've read Harry Potter (while here meaning about three months), and now I'm craving a re-read! There's something very comforting about it.
Part II has some of my very favourite parts of the tour in, and I'll be posting that next week, along with some tips about how to get the most out of your visit - I don't want to overload you with too much Harry all at once!
