Muggles, take note: this spectacular attraction just outside Watford will give you at least three hours of experiencing the magical world of the wizards and witches of Harry Potter. From the Great Hall of Hogwarts to magical props, 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. Admire the intricacies of the Hogwarts Castle model (50-ft in diameter), ride a broomstick, try butterbeer, or just take refuge in the comforting confines of Dumbledore's office. 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 and enjoy the free parking.
