Harry Potter Studio Tour
What a fantastic day we had on Saturday 21st October at the Warner Bros Studio experiencing the Harry Potter Studio Tour. Two coaches set off from Dorset with 110 of our members for an absolutely magical day!
It was a great way to start the school half term and there were some very excited children (and adults) travelling up the motorway! On arrival we all queued up in the foyer to start the tour and first of all went into a room with TV screens all around with the actors from the films talking about their experiences at the Studio. Then we went into the cinema where we watched a short film. The film ended with a picture of the Great Hall doors on the large screen then the screen rolled up and the actual doors were there. They opened the doors and revealed the great hall decorated with lit up pumpkins. It was really magical!
After the great hall everyone was free to experience the rest of the studio at their own pace. All the actual sets from the films were on display and loads of hands on experiences for the children. From the Forbidden Forest and on to Platform nine and three quarters and the Hogwarts Express, film and special effects, the Ministry of Magic, Diagon Alley, Knight Bus, Privet Drive and the amazing Hogwarts Castle model. Everyone had a brilliant day.
Thank you to Warner Bros for providing BSL sign support for us and all the families were given a free digital guide to use. The tour ends with a visit to the shop which had the most amazing selection of things to buy, even if some of it was rather expensive the children still managed to find something to remember the day!
