Harry Potter Experience, August 2017

Harry Potter Experience, August 2017

You asked for it, and finally, here it is! For any Harry Potter fans this is an amazing trip, which includes a tour of the Harry Potter film set in Warner Studios, London.

Get behind-the-scenes and explore the secrets that made this franchise so special. See the various costumes, props and eye-watering effects that brought Harry Potter adventures to life on-screen, an experience like no other.

Your tour is on one day during your stay in London, near Watford Junction. Just a few minutes walk from your hotel is the bus stop for the shuttle that runs directly to Warner Bros Studios, which is just £2.50pp return and takes just 15mins to get you to the entrance. Buses run every 20mins, so it’s easy to plan your trip and make the most of your time here.

We have found both a 3* and a 4* Hotel close to Watford Junction, either of which would be very comfortable for your stay in London.Both are within easy walking distance of Watford Junction and town, and each other.

The 3* Hotel is comfortable and modern, while the 4* hotel is a standard higher with spacious rooms and a stunning fitness centre.

Choose to arrive Friday August 18th for 2 nights B&B including the Harry Potter Experience, or extend your stay to 3 nights B&B and include a day out in London, just 20 mins from Watford Junction to Euston Station in Central London.

You can fly into any London Airport, but as this location is not particularly close to any airport, the average taxi journey will be £50 one way to the hotel on arrival. For this reason, I’d suggest the group either book their flights close together and share transfers to and from the airport, or alternatively I can help you with public transport to keep the cost down even further. Wherever you decide to stay, or for how long, one thing you’ll all be doing together is the Harry Potter Experience.

Green Screen animation, mechanical puppets and astounding special effects are all part of the Harry Potter Experience, and you’ll be here for approximately 3 hours to give you plenty of time to let everything sink in.

Your first 30 minutes is a guided tour of the studio, including information on popular interactive sets, some stories about the adventures of the cast and crew during filming, and so much more.


See how they made Hagrid so gigantic, with exquisite attention to detail in his hut.

The intricate costumes worn by each character, brought to life by the actors who wore them.

The Hogwarts Express and Platform 9 & 3/4.

Dobby, up close and personal.

The Great Hall with dining tables of all four houses, each 100m in length.

And so, so much more…

Flights are as low as €52pp from Dublin to London Stansted, but you can also fly from Kerry, Cork, Shannon and Knock for just a little more. Flights and airport transfers are not included, but 3 nights B&B in either a 3* or 4* hotel, and the Harry Potter Experience are. Arrive at your leisure on Friday August 18th, and stay for either 2 or 3 nights in the hotel of your choosing, prices as follows:


3* Hotel



4* Hotel


2 nights


3 nights

    Hi Rose, I would be interested in a 3 night stay in a 3* hotel with my 11 year old son. Do you need a deposit and by when do you need to pay the full amount?

    Kind regards,

    • Hi Rita, I’ll book you in now and send on the booking details. The deposit would be €100, and you can pay in any amount and any increments as long as you use the reservation number I give you, the full balance would then be due before the beginning of July.
