I traveled to the Warner Brother’s studio Monday to go on a Harry Potter tour. It was an excellent end to my trip in Europe.
Just getting to the studio was a process in itself. My tour time was at 6:00, but I needed to leave Waterloo by 3:45 to get to the proper train station in order to get to the studio. My classmate Darrin and I arrived at 5:15 and thought that we were way too early, but as it turns out we didn’t get to the front of the line to enter the tour until about 5-10 minutes to our scheduled time.
I thought it would be a quick 30-minute-tour, but it wasn’t. I spent THREE hours touring the Harry Potter Studio and it was “wicked!” (Yes, I just quoted Ron Weasley. Get over it.)
|Dean Thomas’ bed!!!|
|The adorable animal actors of the Harry Potter series!|
|Off to Hogwarts on the Hogwarts Express!|
|There’s no beer like butterbeer!|
|Where it all started.|
|Buckbeak, my favorite Hippogriff.|
|The best newspaper ever.|
|Hogsmeade. The red shop is the Weasley’s shop!|
I am so happy I made the time to tour the studio. The Harry Potter series is what started my obsession with British culture and I probably wouldn’t have signed up for this class if it hadn’t been for it. I think I’m going to go and have an HP movie marathon now…
