Time to drive from Warwick to Leavesden

hi there

We are visiting Warwick in July, our last stop before heading back to Heathrow in our rental car

On the way to our 7pm flight we hope to visit the Harry Potter studios at Leavesden

Are you able to advise us about how long it might take us to do the drive? We are travelling on a Thursday

Thanks so much in advance for your help

Oakham, United...

Times on most of the online routeplanners are reasonable guides. try:


- suggests it's about 1hr 25 minutes

Allow extra if you'll be driving at peak hours.. I think your problem may not be Warwick to Leavesden, but possible congestion between there and Heathrow if your journey creeps into rush hour. The speed limit on motorways is 70mph. The M25 though has variable speed limits.. when busy it reduces to 60, 50, or 40mph. The planner says it's a 30 minute journey, but I would personally allow at least double that just in case the M25 gets jammed up.. it may of course be fine!

Don't forget you must booked timed entrance to Harry Potter, in advance. You cannot just turn up without a booking, you will not be admitted.

If you plan to go at the weekend, or in the latter part of July when UK schools are on holiday, you need to book sooner rather than later.
