I paid £200 for a family of 4 on a groupon deal. We got 4 books, a hotdog, butterbeer and some cups to bring back. Would i say its good value, based on 2.5 hours ...... no. I thought some of it was OK and interesting but its over priced to get in and the shop prices are shocking. £9... More

Although I am not into Harry Potter, my two daughters a great fans. However, the Studios were great fun and interesting for all of us.

This trip was booked for my daughter's 9th birthday, and it is amazing! We were there for 3 and a half hours (but could have certainly stayed longer if tiredness wasn't kicking in!) The staff are all amazing and friendly and professional. All of them went of their way to make sure she felt special on her birthday. Seeing the... More

Me and my partner visited here for his birthday, growing up with all the films, we couldn't wait to go. I must say we were blown away by the experience it took us three hours to go round and loved every second!

Nothing looked cheap or even like a prop, everything looked incredible, and very real. It's set up like a museum, with excellent signage for those who want to read. The audio is great too. They have... More
