For anyone who knows me even on the most basic level, it is obvious that I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter series and I will let people know it. From the moment that my mom recommended that I give reading the books a try — I was a Muggle before and thought that I would hate them — I immediately fell in love with the characters, the plot and most importantly, the magic. I will also be the first to admit that deciding to study abroad in London was largely influenced by my love for the series, so when I finally got to go to the studio tour on March 25, it was an absolute dream-come-true. Here are seven parts of the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour that I loved.
1. The shuttle
When we arrived at the station closest to the studio, there is a shuttle specifically for people going to the tour. It is decked out on the sides with Harry Potter images and resembles the famous Knight Bus that is in the films. Once on it, it also plays video previews of the studio to get you hyped for what you are about to see. Fun fact: I have John William’s, “Hedwig’s Theme” and played the composition, as we got closer.
