The designers of the Harry Potter Studio Tour were very thoughtful in planning the touring route.

After exploring around half of the studio tour (Read Part 1 of our Harry Potter Studio Tour Review if you haven’t done so!), it was certainly very apt for some outdoor exhibits coupled with a short stop for some hot food and drinks before continuing with the indoor tour.
Outdoor Exhibits & Butter Beer!
Treat yourself to a Butter Beer. It taste like fizzy caramel! Not for me, but Tommy loves it! 🙂
Marvel at the sheer size of the majestic actual chest pieces used in the filming of the Philosopher’s Stone.
Stroll down to the Dursley’s Cottage at No. 4 Privet Drive.
Visit Godric’s Hollow where the Potters’ used to live.
Board the triple-decker Knight Bus, sit on Hagrid’s flying motorcar, and pose for a picture with the Weasleys’ flying car.
Take a look at Tom Riddle Snr’s grave where Voldemont was resurrected.
Back to Indoor Exhibits
Visit the Creatures Effects Room and view an exhibition of all the prosthetic goblin masks and head casts used by actors during filming, as well as life-sized creatures such as Buckbeak and Aragog. In the same room, look out for the special animated Voldemort and the screaming Mandrake.
Next, stroll down the cobbled streets of Diagon Alley and see the Gringotts Bank, Ollivander’s Wand Shop, the Apothecary, Flourish & Blotts bookstore, Madam Malkin’s Fine Robes, and the Weasley’s Wizard shop.
View the 3D Hogwarts castle model built for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Inspired by Alnwick Castle and Durham Cathedral, artists came up with miniature versions of courtyards and towers. Digital effects were added in to create realistic views of the school.
Visit the Studio Shop and be enchanted by the huge variety of merchandise consisting of wands, robes and cloaks, chocolate frogs, cauldron cakes, and Bertie’s Every Favour Beans – basically anything that exists in Harry’s world exists in this shop as well.
That concludes Part 2 of our review of The Making of Harry Potter – Warner Brothers Studio Tour @ London Watford.
