There wasn't just one thing it was everything great time was had by all of us.
, Mar 2020
We took our great grandson there and it was fantastic. I had watch all the movies and read the books with our grandson and great grandson. The exhibits were interesting and informative, I especially enjoyed the information about the photos that were used in the movies how they made them look like they were old. Also the makeup and masks how the progress was made from the first movie until the last. Great exhibit I would go back another time I am sure there was so much I missed because it was overwhelming but great.
Great experience! Love that its a self guided tour, so no pressure to move at a certain pace. It fills the entire time slot, pickup point was easy to get to and the ride there and back was very smooth (WiFi on the coach helped!) Would definitely recommend to others.
Echo all the other positive reviews! My 27 yo daughter (HUGE fan) & I went this week and both LOVED it. Exceptionally well thought-out attraction - extreme attention to detail.
(1) We arrived 10:30am for the 11am departure & they had already loaded 1 of the 2 buses. There is ample indoor waiting room (& bathroom) at the Vauxhall Bridge meeting spot & folks arrive early! Allot time to get there in rush hour traffic - we came from Notting Hill and it took us a solid 35+ minutes by Uber. Our bus pulled out promptly at 11am (1 couple barely made it - they were not going to hold the bus, unlike reviews I had read stating they left late.)
(2) Bus is clean, nice & comfortable - driver did a great job navigating.
(3) We brought food/drink, but truly there are MANY spots to get food & drink once you are there - midway through and at the end. Significant food & drink choices. Eat a good breakfast and you are good to go.
(4) 1 hour drive to the HP studio. Bring an umbrella and/or hood if it is rainy - you walk into/out of the studio from the bus lane (not extensive, but we would have been wet).
(5) We were leisurely and the the tour took us 3 hours to walk. BUT we didn't do any of the green screen activities - this probably would have taken 30 min - an hour. There is a large indoor area to wait after the tour with food and drink - bus was extremely prompt on the time he gave us to meet him (4:10pm) and left 4:20ish. Many opportunities to buy souvenirs - as I heard someone say - 'hold on to your wallets'!
(6) I think the Viator bus/tickets are WELL worth it - made the day super easy.
(7) Many clean, nice bathrooms interspersed along the tour.
(8) Can confirm what I read here, the '1/2 way' spot along the tour is actually more like '3/4 spot', for reference. We walked 1 more hour after we arrived there.
(9) They do warn you, but to reiterate - you can not go back through, so enjoy on the first pass.
As a moderate fan, I was a bit worried at an attraction that took 3-4 hours to walk, but it is fantastic - so many options to see and do made it great for the biggest and smallest fan. I was never bored.
I went with my uncle and 10 year old son. The drive is about 1.5-2hrs depending on the weather. You get 4 hours at the studio, which I thought it was just the perfect amount of time with no rush and stopping in the middle for a few bites.
My husband and I took this tour and thought it was great if you are into the movie. If you are not, then this isn’t for you. The length for us was a bit long (four hours) but I understand some people took the whole time, we would do it in three hours (that includes eating and shopping). One of the cons about going on a bus, You can only leave when the bus leaves. I say all this knowing we went in the slow time of the year (feb) the summer may be a much different experience.
Clean well organized tour, check in easy and orderly. Bus trip pleasant. Actual wonderful, self paced and plenty of time to see everything we wanted. To see everything offered you do get option of more time. Highlight was Umbridge Afternoon tea in food court. Great fun.
Easy to locate the place where the coach is. However long queue to exchange voucher for the real tickets. Once ticket has been exchanged, able to board the bus immediately and once the bus is filled, then off to our destination. Bus driver was approachable and friendly. Time given to explore HP WB studios is plentiful. Definitely a good experience, for those travelling with families. Take note, this trip, take at least half of your day as the travelling time heading to and fro is impeded by the bad congestion in London. So it's best not to make any bookings/appointments for delays are to be expected. The HP WB was excellent, eye-catching and amazing props leaves you with lovely memories.
