PRIVATE HARRY POTTER & MATILDA TOUR – TYPICAL ITINERARY
Your driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at the specified time. Then, grab your broomsticks for this fantastical flight celebrating J. K. Rowling’s and Roald Dahl’s classic children’s stories, featuring a visit to Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre and a tour of the visually stunning Harry Potter studios. Our Private Harry Potter & Matilda Tour is an action day-out for wizard families with a sense of adventure.
ROALD DAHL MUSEUM & STORY CENTRE
After a fast-track journey from London, we begin this tour with a pleasant drive through the Thames Valley, arriving at Great Missenden, the home village of Roald Dahl, one of the world’s bestselling fiction authors, with sales estimated at 100 million. Fans of the BFG, Matilda, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory can visit the Roald Dahl museum, shop and book locations. Dahl’s burial place is close-by too. Pilgrims leave candy-bars on his grave. Lunch is an option in Roald Dahl’s favourite pub or in the ‘Twits’ Cafe’. The Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre is usually open most days of the week. Admission fee payable on entry.
‘THE MAKING OF HARRY POTTER’ STUDIO TOUR*
Then we make the short journey to the superb Warner Brothers studio tour. Your driver-guide will give you some valuable tips before dropping you right outside the entrance and making sure you quickly pass through the security and ticketing process. Visitors can explore iconic sets from the movies such as the Great Hall at Hogwarts school, Dumbledore’s office, Diagon Alley, Gringott’s Bank and the Leaky Cauldron pub. View original props such as Harry’s flying broomstick, Hagrid’s motorcycle, and the Hogwarts Sorting Hat. See also the amazing triple-decker knight bus, ‘emergency transport for the stranded wizard’, and not forgetting the magnificent Hogwarts Express (*self-guided tour. See important note below). When you have completed the tour, you will have the opportunity to visit the amazing souvenir shop. When you are ready, your driver-guide will pick you up outside the studio for the return journey to central London and drop you off at your place of residence.
