Craig recommends… Here’s my latest Warner Bros. Studios review. If you enjoy the movies then you might like Shrek’s Adventure and the James Bond cars at the London Film Museum. You can see lots of film stars at Madame Tussauds as well. If you want some more children’s attractions then try the London Dungeon, London Aquarium and London Zoo. Ripley’s in Piccadilly Circus is worth a look as well (but read Craig’s review first, because not everyone is so enthusiastic).
If you’re a big fan of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter then get yourself a ticket for the Warner Bros Studios Tour in Leavesden, where they spent ten years making the films – from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2001, right up to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 2011.
Warner Bros is the actual studio where they made the movies, and seeing as JK Rowling was still busy writing the books as they made them, they decided to save all the sets, costumes and props as they went along in case they needed them for later.
What they’ve ended up with now is one of the best collections of film sets and props in the country. You’ll get to walk through Hogwart’s Great Hall, the Gryffindor common room, and straight down Diagon Alley. They’ve even got the big purple bus!
Along the way you’ll discover all the film-makers secrets through using ands-on exhibits and watching specially commissioned movies.
