HARRY POTTER STUDIO LONDON!!!!!!

On Sunday we went to the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio in London! It was the best day ever! I'm such a big Harry Potter fan and have been since the early 2000's when only the books were out! So here I am on a broomstick, flying through London!:

Haha I'll get the how that happened later.... I took so many photos - HUNDREDS! It was so difficult cutting them down to this many. But I thought, you can look on the internet for better photos of the set and props than I took! So I cut most of the awesome stuff out, there was just too much of it! This is going to be my longest ever blog post, I really hope at least one of you reads all of it - I'm really excited to share my experience with you!

So, let's start from the beginning of the day, I guess!
I woke up naturally at like 5am and curled my hair
It didn't stay curled for long though, you'll see it deteriorate throughout the post! Haha
I also wore my favourite bindi!
In the lift, leaving the hotel:
I made Harry Potter nails, not very good ones as I was rushed:
One of the fingers has all for colours of the houses in glitter and a 'H' for Hogwarts!
The back of my hair:
When we arrived we entered the doors into the Great Hall! It was so amazing! So detailed! I still can't believe I was there! I felt like crying! Haha
(By the way, all the sets, props and costumes are all what they used in the films!)
LEFT: In Potions class           RIGHT: In the Great Hall!
Outside shops in Diagon Alley!:
LEFT: Next to Hagrid               RIGHT: In the Ministry of Magic!
In Dumbledores office, getting something from the cupboards for Dumbledore haha:
Hahahahaha I love my face in the one on the right - Neton has great timing at taking photos >_<
There was an area where you could queue to get photos on a broom and in the car! The queue was really long but worth it! It wasn't boring waiting though because you got to see everyone getting their photos on big screens above them. But everyone was doing the same thing! Blushing and smiling awkwardly at the camera.....
When it was our turn I found out why. The guy says 'Look at the camera and smile in 3,2,1' *Takes photo*
So, when he was counting down I said quickly to Neton "Point over here like you've seen something interesting" 
When I saw our photos it looks like Neton was wanting to please both me and the camera guy! He did both! He pointed (like I asked) and smiled at the camer (like the camera guy asked!):
I gave him a slap for not listening to me fully! Hahahaha
Here is his broomstick photo, flying over Hogwarts!:
The studio had an outside area about halfway through where you could buy BUTTERBEER!
OMG! It was so awesome! I have no idea how they did this but...... it bubbled! It was ice cold, fizzy and tasted like butterscotch but nicer. It had a reeeallly thick cream on top that was bubbling like a cauldron potion! It can't be good for you! Haha

I was so sad because I didn't even drink a 10th of mine, it was too filling! I don't drink fizzy drinks so I'm not used to them!

There were lots of awesome things outside, here I am on the Night Bus!:
Here we are in the flying car!:
We also stopped by the Dursleys house!:
Sneaking away, inconspicuously!:
The very queen that knocked out Ron!:
I'll include more photos at the end anyway! There was so much there, it was so awesome!
There was a shop at the end and they allowed you to try on robes! We tried on Slytherin robes!:
LEFT: In the shop with a timeturner I bought    RIGHT: Outside the shop
When we left it was soooo bright, we could barely see where we were going! We'd been inside for hours and it was such a bright day! I wanted a photo with the statues outside but in all of them I'm squinting like crazy! Haha
When we were back at the car, we took one last photo of ourselves looking really sad that it's over:
Neton looks a little more angry than sad though!:
Hahahahhaa >_<

Now I'll post more photos of what was there!
Vodemorts fathers grave!:
Dobby looked shocked to see us!:
............ I was going to post photos of Dumbledores Office, Great Hall, Common Room etc but..... it would make this post even longer and you can find better photos of them online or even just watch the films! Hahaha >_<
The Fat Lady:
There was a big, beautiful Hogwarts model at the end. It was AMAZING! So much detail!
Whenever there are outside shots of the castle, it's of this model! You can see how big it is if you can see the people in the background of it!
OH! There was a painting I recognised from the staircase! It was at the end in the shop - I knew exactly where it was in the film! I took a photo of the painting and screen-capped the film to show you!:
There were interactive things throughout the studio too! Like this:
You wave your hand over it and it washed Mrs Weasleys pan (like in The Chamber of Secrets)
LEFT: The invisibility cloak          RIGHT: Rons Yule Ball outfit:
Getting a wand:
Diagon Alley was soooo cool!:
Voldemort:
And some more of me in the morning before leaving the hotel:
If any of you have any tips on how to make hair stay styled - please tell me! Mine ALWAYS goes flat, no matter how much hairspray I use. Even the backcombing goes flat!
My souvenirs from the day!:
Tickets, photos, bags etc
The only thing I bought from the shop was a timeturner!:
The shop was so expensive, but I guess they have a right to be! The timeturner is so cool! It has a little sand timer in the middle, I've never noticed that in the films before!
On the way back home:
We ate seaweed on the way back - it's my favourite food in the world!:
So yeah, any Harry Potter fans who can afford to go really should! It was AMAZING!
I want to go back! As soon as I can go back, I'm going! And this time I'm going to beat the record of staying for 11 hours!
There's so much more than I've shown....
Thank you Warner Bros Studios for giving me the best day ever!

    1. Ah, I want to go to that one one day - it looks awesome! But the one in London isn't a park - it's the actual studio with all the set, props and costumes from the actual films..... it's more like a museum! <3

  7. OMG I was in London but I didn't know they have the whole studio there O__O *must go there the next time*

    And my hair is also totally non-stylable (is this a word? xDDD), I can put a whole can of hairspray on it and it wouldn't stay... I searched for ages but until now I didn't found a solution for it ;( Okay the only thing I did by accident, was first hairspray and then the curlor, but it really burns the curls in your hair so not recommended xD

    1. Ah, that's such a shame! I really hope you can go next time!

      Ah, yes that would work but it would destroy my already damaged hair so much! If I ever find a solution I'll post it on my blog! <3
