I booked this as a surprise for my daughters 13th Birthday. I advise booking online in advance to avoid waiting at the ticket machines, I purchased 5 Adult tickets and 1 Child, 6 Paperback Souvenir Guides and 6 Digital Tour Guides. I booked the first early morning slot which began at 9am. On arrival we were checked for tickets which I had posted out to me in advance. I arrived at around 08:30 and was directed to a parking space by security staff right near the entrance which was perfect. On arrival we were greeted by 3 statues from the Wizard Chess Board. Once in side the entrance we had all bags checked and were scanned with metal detectors. Photography is not permitted in the security area. Once inside it was sheer wonderment from the get-go, we headed into the gift shop and waited fifteen minutes in order to collect our digital guides which I strongly recommend for a comprehensive interactive tour. It compromises of an ipod touch like device and ear phones with very simplistic instructions in various languages. We then handed in our tickets and joined a fast moving queue and waited for the tour to begin. The tour begins with a cinema introduction and then onward into the Great Hall of Hogwarts which my lucky daughter got to help open the doors making her birthday very memorable. It does feel as though you are slightly rushed through the Great Hall when it is busy and everyone is trying to take photographs and take in all the surroundings and information. We then moved on through various parts of the film history, a must for any art lover or film buff. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, clean and presentable. Take note and perhaps avoid if you suffer from arachnophobia or fear snakes. The new Forbidden Forrest attraction is amazing and makes you feel as though you have become part of the movie. I obviously do not want to give away too much of the attraction and spoil it but my highlights were trying the real ButterBeer which has a taste similar to Ice cream Chewits. They can be purchased with souvenir tankards which you can rinse but I suggest taking a towel or tissues to dry them and a bag to carry them around. ButterBeer Ice cream is also available in souvenir dishes. In the entrance is a place for food and a Starbucks but further into the tour is a food area and eatery. I only wish I had taken my own food as the Burgers we purchased were not that brilliant. My daughter had a Hot dog which she enjoyed. I feel the food was overpriced with limited choice. The Tour itself was wonderful but can work out quite expensive when children can purchase souvenir dvd/usb sticks/ photographs/ posters etc of themselves flying on a broom or sat on the Hogwarts express. The Gift Shop is very over priced with items such as Chocolate Frogs costing just short of £9.00 each, along with Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans, Fizzing Whizzbees and lollipops etc. On the whole I would visit again but would advise large families that it could prove to be rather expensive for the add on treats. My children wanted to purchase hoodies which they had saved pocket money for the trip and they cost on average £45.00 each. The Wands are a lovely addition but again cost around £30.00 each. I am not tight by any means but they do out price some people. If the day had been cold I would suggest taking a coat etc as some of the attraction is outside. I suggest browsing the Gift Shop on arrival as after the tour it becomes so busy. The tour can take quite a lot of hours on average probably around 3. We arrived for 9 and left around 17:00. The Tour is brilliant but may be quite heavy for younger children. I suggest buying your Butter Beer, Guides etc online prior to the tour to stagger the cost. The only downside to the day was that when we came to leave, our car had traffic cones shaped like Wizard Hats placed across the way out. I went to ask a security guard as to why this was the case in case there had been an incident. He spoke to me as though I was stupid and said its a one way system. I told him that obviously I could see that but we were blocked. In the end a girl who he was chatting to came with me to prove I was wrong. On arrival at my car her attitude changed and said sorry, someone had obviously moved the cones as there was meant to be a gap. This is not a big issue however his attitude was rather unprofessional and we had to wait in case the cones had been placed there for a specific reason. Maybe more attention needed in guarding the car park. Final tip is to check out the merchandise on the online shop so that you have an idea of prices and also be aware that they do have Tour exclusives such as Hogwarts Express Merchandise. Take a camera to take it all in. I can not wait to do it again. Collapse

I was very excited to visit this place and did not regret it for a moment. If you are a fan of HP - it is a must. The price does not matter. It took approximately 3-4 hours to enjoy the tour, but we were rushing some parts of it. So, if possible, book the earliest time and take your time. Do not forget to ask guides for extra information (you can find them on each set of location). Collapse

First things first, the tour itself is incredible ranges from casual fan to super fan level of enjoyment. But the thing that really made mine and the people I went withs day were the people who were working there, great service and fun to be around. Significant mentions to Donna and Lee in the wand room, a room that we'd previously been through and not thought twice about it. It was made into one of our favourite rooms with the stories behind the boxes and the stories that both had to offer. Donna's knowledge of the room was incredible and she was so kind in indulging us with trivia and little nuggets and gems about the wand room and the actors and people involved that they represented. Lee carried on where Donna left off giving us a wider insight into the studio itself and to be honest was spectacular in showing his love for all things Harry Potter and the studio. I Personally believe that Lee and Donna need to have their own section of the tour to show off their magic! Thank you Lee and Donna!! (Donna was called away before we could get a photo) Collapse

As a huge Harry Potter fan I loved this tour! I even if you are not a fan it would be enjoyable. They stagger people in so it never felt very busy. It was nice to walk through the tour by yourself and enjoy everything.

Needless to say, she admitted that it was wonderful. For fan, it's a phenomenon. You will marvel at the sets and costumes and be astounded at the great hall. It will be a time to remember. Collapse
