Fodor's Review

Muggles, take note: this spectacular attraction just outside Watford gives you a good three hours of the magical world of Harry Potter. From the Great Hall of Hogwarts—faithfully restored—to magical props beautifully displayed in a vast studio space, each section of this attraction showcases the real sets, props, and special effects used in the eight movies. Visitors enter the Great Hall, a fitting stage for costumes from each Hogwarts house. You can admire the intricacies of the huge Hogwarts Castle model, ride a broomstick, try butterbeer, explore Platform 9¾, or just take refuge in the comforting confines of Dumbledore's office. The new Hogwarts Express section—in a faithfully reproduced King's Cross Station—allows you to walk through the actual steam train and see what it's like to ride with Harry and the gang. Tickets, pegged to a 30-minute arrival time slot, must be prebooked online. The studio tour is a 20-minute drive from St. Albans. You can also get here by taking a 20-minute train ride from London's Euston Station to Watford Junction (then a 15-minute shuttle-bus ride). Via car from London, use M1 and M25—parking is free.
