When in London: Harry Potter!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend!

I thought I’d share a piece of my honeymoon with you all. I’ll definitely share more, but this one activity needs its own post!

We spent two weeks in the UK; most of it was in Scotland, but then the last few days were in London. While we were in London, we did the Warner Bros Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter. I’m a big HP fan, so I was super excited to be doing this!

We took a double-decker bus (which reminded me of the Knight Bus) to the Warner Bros. lot for our 9am tour. They even played Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets for the ride over!

Seeing all the actual sets, props, and costumes that were used in the films was incredible. There was so much to look at (the amount of photos I have just from this tour is probably ridiculous, but that’s okay). We saw everything from the Great Hall, the Forbidden Forest, and the Gryffindor Common room to the large chess pieces, the serpent door Harry opened to get into the Chamber of Secrets, and Aunt Marge’s body when she was blown up.

*I apologize that these photos aren’t of the best quality. I took them with my iPhone since my DSLR camera was giving me a hard time (I didn’t want to spend too much time trying to fix it or else I would’ve have missed parts).

Phew! Apologies for the lengthy post, but like I said, TONS of photos (I took way more than I actually showed here). I might do a part 2 so I can show you guys things I didn’t include like the Yule Ball, more costumes/props, The Burrow, etc.

I hope you enjoyed! I would definitely recommend doing this if you’re ever in London and are a big HP fan like myself.
