The World Of Harry Potter

Fans of The Harry Potter series will be excited to see some of the film’s iconic props up close and personal at The Warner Bros. Studio Tour.

The candy store, Honeydukes was full of wizarding world confections. Check out the detailed graphics on these candy packages.

Creatures from the films, costumes and concept art are in every corner of the gallery. The life size Dobby was made for the scene where Harry buries him at the seashell cottage. I wouldn’t recommend getting too close to Aragog.

Fantasic Beasts is also represented in the exhibit. You can take an up close look at Gellert Grindelwald, Johnny Depp’s wicked sorceror.

Castle Hogwarts

High above the town, looms the magnificent castle of Hogwarts Wizarding School.

We enter the Castle via the massive underground labyrinth. You never know what you may find in the basement of Hogwart’s. This statue of a Hunchbacked Witch figures into Harry Potter’s tale.

Roaming the twisting and turning corridors of Hogwarts castle you are sure to see some amazing things. These portraits aren’t content to smile pretty, they talk to each other and even leave their frames to visit their neighbors.

Our day at the school has come to end as the night envelopes the castle.

We make our way back though the dark streets of Hogsmeade.

Perhaps we have time for one last drink before we leave. It’s a rather quiet evening at the Hogshead tavern in the town. Normally, the place is bustling with witches and wizards.

The namesake of the Hog’s Head Tavern. Here’s a tip, tip the bartender and you may see something fun.

After a delicious frozen Butterbear, we grab an ice cold Pumpkin Juice for the walk back to the Hogwarts Express and reality.

A Side Trip To A Magical Place

Make your way to Platform 9 3/4 at Charing Cross Station and take the express train to Hogsmeade.

If you’re looking for a new hat, be sure to stop by McHavelock’s Wizarding Headgear.

Maestro’s Music Shoppe has everything you need for the musically inclined. From trombones to sheet music to guitar lessons, Maestro’s has it all.

Be sure to stop by Ollivander’s new location in Hogsmeade for the chance to let a wand choose you. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

A great way to waste an afternoon is browsing all of the wonderful confections of Honeyduke’s. Chocolate Frogs, Bertie Bott’s Beans of Every Flavor and Cauldron Cakes are just a few of the treats awaiting you.

More delicious, sugary treats from Honeyduke’s.

Stop by the Owl Post to send your letter home and get a special cancellation stamp.

You can send anything and everything from The Owl Post. A full range of postal options is available day and night.

The Owlry provides some much needed shade for the hard working birds of the Owl Post. Be careful where you sit.

Even in the heat of Summer, Hogsmeade maintains a fresh blanket of snow.
