Harry Potter Studio Tour: Photo Diary (2017)


If you need to know one thing about me, it is that I am a massive Harry Potter fan. I tend to conceal my love on my blog for all things Potter. However, hopefully, I'll be able to write some more Harry Potter themed posts in the future. I want to do a Harry Potter collection blog post but rounding up all my merch will be one hell of a task. I will do it one day though. 

Obviously, if you are a massive Harry Potter fan, you need to visit the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. This isn't my first time visiting. I went back in 2015, for my 17th birthday. I actually documented my experience on my blog too. You can read my photo diary from that visit here. I went when it was all decked out for Christmas. Seeing the set covered in snow was purely breathtaking. Although this time it wasn't set out for winter it was equally magical.

The great thing about the studios is how they are always adding new features. 2017, saw the launch of the Forbidden forest, which spoiler alert is sick. They also added some new interactive elements and opened up Privet drive. I took hundreds of photos on the day but here are just a select few from my trip. I hope you feel pottered out when you get to the end!




Harry's cupboard under the stairs is the first thing you see while you're queuing to get inside. Obviously, a photo next to it is required. 


If it's your birthday or if it's your pretend birthday you get to open the grand hall doors. You also now get a badge for doing so. Yes, I'm like the oldest kid in that photo, who cares.








"UP" "UP" "UPPP...."




The forbidden forest is amazing, although if you don't like spiders, I would warn you, the walk through may be a little bit terrifying for you. 























Butterbeer ice cream is the one! I don't know if they sell it all year around but OMG it's amazing. Butterbeer isn't that great, but you know got to try it! 








They also have a little Fantastic Beasts and where to find them section now, which is cool! This will grow greatly when the rest of the films come out. 

I'm sorry the photos aren't in order, I did try, but it takes too long and is fiddly. I hope you enjoyed looking through the photos from my visit. I hope it has inspired you to take a trip there too.

Have you ever been to the Studio Tour? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments below! 

Thanks for reading, as always X

  2. Ohh no way, I didn't know they had a Forbidden Forest now, that's awesome! My sister went and brought me back a Chocolate Frog, I really want to visit the gift shop so I can see what else they have. Also I really love the t-shirt you wore for the day hehe! :)

  3. I went to the tour yonks ago but remember it was incredible. I now work at a company whose offices are just around the corner but it's so tempting to book tickets to go to Harry Potter because it's just so close and your photos reminded me of how magical it is!

  7. Looks like you had the most magical time Nicole - I'm not really a Harry Potter fan myself (I'm sorry), but I think it'd be so cool to visit!
