Went to the Harry Potter studios this Saturday just gone and was really surprised how much we enjoyed the experience. We drove from Leicester and the sat nav took us to the area we needed and followed the excellent signs showing us where to go. We were directed to the parking spot.
Went to collect the tickets and then went inside, whilst taking lots of pictures. Went with my 3 cousins 12-15 and they were so excited. We went into the gift shop to have a browse and there was such an amazing selection of things to buy, everything you can imagine or dream of (apart from a dobby teddy bear)
We waited in the queue and did not have to wait too long. We went inside and watched the short movie which was nice and the screen went up, what a surprise!
The activities inside the studios were great too. They all had a child’s passport each which they enjoyed getting the stamps.
The outside area was a nice surprise and seeing the houses and trying the famous butter beer (not to my liking - £2.95 for a very small glass)
The staff here are so lovely and the best customer service skills I have ever experienced, even better than at the Ritz! The person who trained them or leads them has done a fantastic job and should show other places how it’s done; every single staff member was just so nice and friendly. Genuine smiles and overall go over and beyond helping you.
Only negative but not a negative if that makes sense are the prices of the items in the gift shop, very high but an experience. We had a laugh trying the different jelly beans on the drive home, almost vomited trying the vomit flavour jelly bean!!
Overall we paid £89 for a family of four, and well worth it. Would highly recommend for the Harry Potter fans. I would not go again to be honest as it was an experience once doing. We spent around 4 hours all together including sitting down for lunch.
