Wannabe wizards and witches will be charmed to hear about the reopening of the Warner Brothers Studio Tour

 

The studios, in Leavesden near Watford, created much of the action for the Harry Potter series. They’ve since converted old backlots into a wizarding studio tour -- an act of transfiguration that Professor McGonagall would be proud of.

Visitors can wander around the recreated sets, including Diagon Alley, Platform 9 ¾, Hogwart’s Great Hall and the Forbidden Forest. Kids can also explore the many props, costumes and special effects used across the eight films. (Top fact: Daniel Radcliffe went through 160 pairs of glasses and 70 wands during filming.)

The tours begin again on 20 August, and all tickets must be prebooked.
 

The Making of Harry Potter tour is arguably the best family day out in Watford (although, believe it or not, we have found 14 other contenders).
 

Accio tickets!
