It was on my 7th birthday that I got my first ever Harry Potter book, the first book in the series – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Since then, 15 years ago, I have been a part of the Harry Potter fandom, following every step of the journey. So when the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour opened in London in 2012 I was so excited to visit, and I finally got the chance last Tuesday!
For me, the most magical moment is at the very start, after you watch a little video about the creation of the film series and…I shan’t spoil it for those of you who haven’t visited, but those of you who have been will know what I’m talking about! Besides that part, my highlights were seeing all the wigs, Dumbledore’s office, the scene with Nagini and all the Death Eaters sat around the table in the Malfoy Mansion, going inside the newly opened no.4 Privet Drive and seeing all the letters, bowing at Buckbeak and of course seeing the model of Hogwarts!
On a related side note: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the first book of the series, came out 19 years ago yesterday!! Happy belated Birthday HP1!!
And now I shall leave you to just a few (read: quite a lot) of the photos I took during my visit, as my words can do it no more justice!
