Return visit after 2 years. Amazed at the new Gringotts, the dragon frightened our grandaughter ! So much to see that's still informative and interesting. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Honestly can't wait for the next visit.

Visited yesterday with friends and was very impressed with the whole experience. It was very well organised and thought out. Despite it being busy we didn't feel cramped or rushed. Purchased the audio tour which gave extra information. My only negative was the cost to do the tour and the items in the gift shop. I would have liked a momento but was not prepared to pay the exorbitant prices. Collapse
Disappointed to say the least

First off, I am no Harry Potter fan, but I have an obsessed family and this was a treat for my 8yr olds birthday. I would say she enjoyed it, but we went yesterday and she has already forgotten about what she saw and the broomstick riding photo has already made it to the floor of her bedroom. After reading reviews about it being busy, we opted for a 9:30 tour so we wouldn’t be caught in mega crowds. Yeah right. So let me break this experience down into what it really is... The tour itself.... Consists of queuing at the start, entering a ride holding area to build suspense, watch a 10 minute presentation, enter the great hall, short speech by the guide and “ok, can we ask you to all move into the next area now as the next tour is about to begin behind us” - Yup, that’s it. Maximum of 30mins. There is no further studio tour experience. On to the museum.... Once the tour is over, you enter what is effectively a museum setup that you walk around. There’s lots to see and lots of props, but some of the written plaques are inaccurate as we noticed, describing props that were mixed in with other props and for someone like myself, could not identify what the thing was describing. Of course, I had my family on hand to fill in the gaps. We also had our optional extra digital guides on hand (More about them later). Some of the props and sets are amazing, but I will be honest and say that unless they are put in context, it is sometimes hard for kids to visualise what they are seeing. For example, there was the potions room configured, we had to use the site WiFi to show my youngest (5) a clip that we found online to explain how and what this “set” was for.... Still not sure he got it. Likewise a lot of the props in the film use CGI to make them come to life, try and explain this to a kid who thinks their replica resin wand is real but they just need the magic blood to activate it and you quickly realise that the magic of “making Harry Potter” soon loses its appeal. Of course there is a CGI section, but it’s nearer the end, by which point you are exhausted by explaining everything up to that point. The digital guide... So this is an optional extra - it should have been included in the price. After all, what’s a tour without a guide. We had 4 of these things wrapped round our necks. We wore them for the first section and gave up in the end. 1 stopped working shortly after entering the experience, was replaced by a member of staff. A 2nd stopped working near the knight bus, which at this point no-one was really interested in the unit anymore. To be fair, for almost a fiver, they was a complete waste of cash. My wife knew more and the narration was not tailored to the kids, so they just found it boring and once they’d finished seeing if they could find a game on the device, the headphones sat on their necks and they just become heavy necklaces. A fun kids narrative would make this better value. For anyone visiting with kids, don’t bother with the digital guides. The green screens.... Get ya wallet out - not going to say anymore than that. £14/photo. The backlot cafe.... OMG - If it ain’t on the menu then you cannot have it, if it’s on the menu, there’s a chance you still cannot have it. Oh, and did I mention almost £9 for a hot dog. Yes, you know, a bun, frankfurter and some fries.... Truly outrageous, got to sit on a sticky table with some half drank cups of butter beer. You queue, you pay, you then kind of hang around the tills whilst more people pay and wait for their names to be called. This needs serious improvement. The quality of food was ok, but not good enough to justify the cost. Captive audience sums the experience up. Butter Beer.... Fancy another queue? Get some butter beer, which is like Cream Soda mixed with Caramel.... Rather sickly and rather sticky. Make sure you drink it there and then as you won’t be allowed to take it any further than the cafe without the fun police telling you off. Bought a decorative cup and can’t handle all that sugar in one sitting? No problem, you can queue up to empty your cup in a drain and then queue up again to rinse it out the other side of the cafe. The Gift Shop.... How does £70 for a set of robes sound? A bit pricey maybe? What about £30 for a wand? Yeah, come on kids, time to go. Overall.... Funny enough, I found the whole experience rather expensive for what it is. I appreciate the fact that all these exhibits take money to maintain and real estate is a premium and this stuff takes up a lot of space, but when you compare costs to the specialists at the natural history museum or even a day out at a zoo - this is a total RIP OFF. My wife who is a massive fan was “pleased” with it but commented that she was also “rather disappointed” and that “it was not what she was expecting”. The kids, well the general consensus was “it was good, what’s for dinner?” Definitely not a memorable experience. Sorry Warner Bros, this could have been so much better. Collapse

We visited the attraction with our teenage kids and I must say it is a must for any Harry Potter fan. The bus ride over there was a bit dodgy as the Harry Potter movie they played kept freezing and restarting so we've seen the opening 15 minutes about 5 times in a row, while freezing due to lack of heating. Nevertheless, the attraction made up for that and we quickly forgot the first hour. After the security check, you walk in to a huge waiting area until you can get in. There are cafes and a shop to pass the time. Note that although they tell you to start queuing up at the time shown on your ticket, you should get in line before that as they only let in a limited number of people and you might only get in with the next group. Inside, you'll discover a magical world. You'll easily spend the day there. There are attractions to try out, green box filming and of course all the relics used in the movies with loads of demos and explanations. Upon exiting you can spend some time and money in the shop, which is inevitable, especially if you have kids, but that is part of the fun. If you are a Harry Potter fan, this is a must see attraction. Collapse
