Harry Potter Activities in London

by Jemma (follow)
For those of you who are Harry Potter fans, you may have seen the recent news coverage of hundreds of fans flocking to King's Cross Station to try and spot Harry, Ron, and Hermione as they drop their children off at the Hogwarts Express.

Yes, Albus Severus Potter did just start his first year at Hogwarts and now I feel old!

If Hogwarts was your second home while growing up and you want to share the magic with your kids too, here are 4 Harry Potter theme activities in London:

1. Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter

This award-winning tour offers visitors the ultimate opportunity to journey behind the scenes of Harry Potter and experience the magic that has gone into creating the most successful film series of all time.

"I'm not going home... Not really."

Walk in the footsteps of Harry Potter and explore the wonders of the Wizarding World through breathtaking sets, authentic props and original costumes.

Where: Studio Tour Drive, Watford

For more information, see here.

2. Platform 9¾

King’s Cross is where students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy catch the Hogwarts Express, and Harry and his friends get onto the platform by walking through a brick wall between platforms 9 and 10.

Platform 9¾ at King's Cross Station

If you go into King's Cross station, you will find a platform 9¾ on the wall in the station concourse, which makes for a great photo opportunity. There's also a Harry Potter shop here which is as amazing as it sounds.

Where: King's Cross, Euston Road, London, Greater London

For more information, see here.

3. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre

This is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. While it's not a nostalgic HP classic, it gives a taste of what happened next.
