M planned a surprise day out today as he knows I love surprises. Unfortunately, I’m the world’s most annoying girlfriend and never actually end up getting surprised as I spend the whole time guessing every last possibility beforehand. I’m ever worse with christmas presents. No surprises therefore when I guessed we were off to the ‘Making of Harry Potter’ at the Warner Bros studio in Watford.
As a huge Harry Potter fan, I’ve been dying to go ever since it opened. There’s no point writing much – the photos negate any need for that. I’ll only add that it was truly magical seeing all the film sets in real life – I couldn’t believe how small some of them were. The beds in the boys’ dormitory were diddy!
The tour itself only took a couple of hours. Tickets were £29 each. It was really good and magical, but I’m not sure I’d be rushing back to go again – it’s effectively just a Harry Potter museum. I’m not sure what else I was expecting!
We bought some Butterbeer which I hated – it was like cream soda with spicy coke, bleurgh. M enjoyed it hugely.
