Olivanders - Harry Potter Studio Tour by Stephs World

Harry Potter Studio Tour // Photo Diary – April 2017

Everyone who reads Steph’s World or follows me on Instagram will already know that I am a massive Harry Potter fan! As soon as I heard they were opening the Forbidden Forest, I knew I had to book again and I am glad that I did!

This is the third time that I have visited the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour and it was just as magical as the first time. The links to my previous visits will be at the end if you fancied giving them a read to find out more about the tour.

The Forbidden Forest

If you are planning on visiting The Forbidden Forest at Harry Potter Studio Tour (for the first time), then I would skip to the below Photo Diary.

SPOILERS AHEAD!

Once entering The Forbidden Forest (which was a stone throw away from the Ministry of Magic) I found it very exciting. There was a lifesize Hagrid which greets you and the stunning Hippogriff.

There is then a ‘scary’ route and ‘non-scary’ route. The ‘non-scary’ route is very basic – passing by about 3 trees and straight onto Platform 9 3/4.

The ‘scary’ route is just a little darker with the spiders. It did feel like you were in The Forbidden Forest which was fantastic, but I just wish it was a little bigger. I think the last expansion (the Hogwarts Express) spoilt everyone as it was massive and super impressive.

I think the Forbidden Forest is a great addition to Harry Potter Studios, and I can’t wait for the next expansion, whatever it may be.

If you don’t want to know what is at the Studio Tour, please look away now as there will be lots and lots of photos.

Freebie // Something you may not know…

If you are planning on visiting the Harry Potter Studio Tour, and you’re a Harry Potter Nerd and big kid, make sure you pick up one of the passports. They allow you to collect stamps (which emboss the page) around the tour – and they are pretty cool! I had so much fun just collecting the stamps. I wasn’t the only adult! Honest!

Previous Visits

As I said earlier, this is my third time visiting the Studio Tour – which must mean that I love it! Here are my two previous posts:

    Never been a huge fan of Harry Potter but my sisters are obsessed. We are heading to Orlando at the end of the year from my sisters 30th birthday and they are so excited to see the Harry Potter park. It looks like you had such a great time and your pictures are brilliant. Never been a huge fan of Harry Potter but my sisters are obsessed.

    I haven’t been to the HP studio tour for a couple of years but I’m hoping to get back this year. I really want to go around Christmas as I haven’t seen it all decorated before. I haven’t even seen the Hogwarts Express yet which I am very excited about!

  • I’ve not visited the HP studio tour for a couple of years, but I really want to go back especially since the Hogwarts Express is there now and the Forbidden Forest! I’m so excited to see what else they could add – it’ll soon basically be like Harry Potter World in Orlando!

    I have been asking my boyfriend for ages to come with me to the HP studios and he is having none of it. It looks amazing and makes me want to go even more now. Looks like you had a lovely time, and if I do ever go I will remember to grab a passport. xx

    I need to go back to the HP Studios! I went not long after it first opened so I’ve not seen the Forbidden Forest exhibit or the Hogwarts Express! I might go back in the summer!
