Alternative to Harry Potter Studio?! Backstage experiences?

AW MAN! We were waiting on a friend to book our Harry Potter Studio Tour tickets for Friday, January 31... and now they're sold out!!

WE'RE SUPER DISAPPOINTED!

Any ideas of other attractions on that "BEHIND THE SCENES" type wavelength?

My friends and I work backstage on amateur theatricals, so that's really what we wanted to see some of in London.

Alternatively... Do Harry Potter Studio Tours ever un-sell out? :(

I think the Royal Opera House Covent Garden also has guided tours.

Check out London Walks. They have HP themed walks within London. I bet you may like that

It says that tickets can be cancelled and refunds given so it is possible that tickets may become available.. if you are very lucky! You'll just have to keep checkign every 5 minutes ...

You can also take behind the scenes tours at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and at the Royal Albert Hall.

Check Golden Tours - I believe they have tickets to Harry Potter (I don't know if other companies also do as well).

When will you be in London? The Barbican theatre has behind the scenes tours for their current production, the Royal Shakespeare Company's Richard II (starring David Tennant), but it finishes next Saturday. They also have general Barbican behind the scenes tours, but the one that's specifically for Richard II is much better.

I've done the Theatre Royal Drury Lane tour, it was pretty good.

I also did Golden Tours to Harry Potter when the direct tickets were sold out. I think they are the only outside company doing HP.
