‘Walk in the footsteps of Harry Potter and explore the wonders of the wizarding world’ Join us for the Warner Bros (London) behind-the-scenes walking tour of the world's most famous magician. So you may be thinking… What are the Must-Dos at this magnificent park? (In no particular order- here are a few examples of what to expect).
- Satisfy the sweet tooth. For most of us who love chocolates, a visit to Honeydukes Sweet Shop is almost mandatory. However, this isn’t your average candy shop on the high-street. The intoxicating aromas of candy and chocolate will send your taste buds tingling (enough to make anyone’s mouth water).
- Do the Dragon Challenge? Do you have the urge to explore beyond your daily surroundings and open yourself up to the adventure that this ride offers? Well don’t miss out on this thrill seeking ride alongside the duel seeking dragons.
- Hogwarts Express. You can’t miss the train that transported Harry and his friends to magical Hogwarts.
- Drink Butter Beer. I admit this is one of the things that I am looking forward to the most- tasting butter beer. For those not familiar with it, was what the young wizards and witches fancied.
Don’t miss out on an amazing new opportunity to explore the magic of the Harry Potter films - the most successful film series of all time.
