What can I say? In a word - MAGICAL!! From beginning to end, it was amazing. I went with my husband, son, daughter-in-law & 12 year old grandson. I must add that we are all Harry Potter fans so this day out was fantastic. As soon as you enter the foyer, you are greeted with photos of the actors & actresses who starred in the film. Even the flying car was hoisted above you. The staff were exceptional - helpful, polite & informative. Nothing was too much trouble. Our "slot" was booked for 3pm but we arrived at noon. This gave us plenty of time to look around the gift shop and have some lunch. As expected, the food was basic and a little dear. Better to take a packed lunch. The shop was full of everything you can imagine......wands, cloaks, scarves, sweatshirts, t-shirts, cuddly owls, jewellery and much, much more BUT really expensive. The scarves were £24.95 each!! Make sure you have plenty of money is you want to buy anything. The Hogwarts fridge magnet was £5.95 & I think this was the cheapest item there.
Onto the tour........a guide took you through the first couple of sections then you were free to explore. And what an eye opener it was. I cannot emphasise the size of this place - it was huge and there was so much to see. Artifacts from the films were all over the place - you had to look absolutely everywhere - up high, in between props. And you can take as many photos as you like but NO recording. We were like kids in a sweet shop - not knowing what to look at next. We finished around 6pm but could have spent a few more hours so would recommend getting there early. All in all, a fantastic day out!
I have only uploaded 4 out of my 250 photos - don't want to spoil it for you :-)
You can only book online - tickets are not available to purchase at the venue. And finally, as there was SO much to see, could have done with Harrys wand and the magic word "Mobilicorpus" - would have been a lot easier!
