Harry Potter Studio
Located in Watford, London, the Warner Bros Studios opened to the public in March 2012. Inside the studios, it is possible to visit the entire cinematographic set of Harry Potter. Visitors can walk through the corridors of Hogwarts, knock on the door of Privet Drive number 4, have a sip of “butterbeer”, and have a brief quidditch experience. Since Harry Potter went viral in the world and won children's and grownups' hearts, visiting Warner Bros is not only a place where to bring your childrens. Harry Potter's Studios are therefore a perfect location to spend a magic day with kids and family.
