Harry Potter Studio Tour: London Day 5

Thursday, January 9, 2020
I'm so glad we did the Warner Bros studio tour! It's a 2ish hour drive outside of London and a must for any Harry Potter fan. This is where they actually filmed all the movies and they have so much from the original sets. It was so fun to literally walk through the dining hall, see Harry's cupboard under the stairs, Privet drive, the bus, etc. etc. But, I think my favorite was the Forbidden Forest! I don't know, now that I write this out it's hard to choose just one!

They also had all the robots/props and it was so interesting to see them so up close! My favorite was the weird, naked baby Voldemort lol. 

I would say the only downsides to it are that it's definitely an all day type of thing and the food options weren't as expansive as Universal Studios in Florida. They did have butter beer, though! Also, it's definitely a museum, so don't go expecting rides/an amusement vibe like Universal Studios. There is one part where they have a "dragon attack" and it's pretty cool to see how they made it look so real using a screen, but that's as "amusement park" as it gets.

Overall, I'd recommend it if you are a super Harry Potter fan and want to know the behind the scenes of everything! And if you have enough time to spend a whole day on this excursion. We had enough time and I'm glad we did it! 


London Canal Tour and Camden Market: London Day 5

Our last full day started out with breakfast at Drury, a cute little coffee shop. The decor was cute and the food was good! The orange juice was fresh squeezed and my avocado toast had a lemon juice flavor that was amazing!


Biking Around Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Eating Indian Food, and Getting Scurred!: London Day 4

Wednesday, November 6, 2019
Day 4 started out with us going to Big Ben only to discover it was covered in scaffolding haha. I totally knew this, but when we were on the London Eye I thought I saw it uncovered! So, we walked over to Westminster Abbey where we happened to run into a climate change protest. It was really cool! There were police every where and people holding signs and demonstrations. There were people "handcuffed" around barrels using plastic. It was really cool to stumble upon!

Windsor Castle, Bath, Stonehenge and A Secret Harry Potter Tavern: London Day 3

Day 3 was our tour day! We left at like 7:00am (ish), took an Uber to the bus station and then took a bus to Windsor Castle. It was such a cute little area! And also so cool to tour the castle. I guess the queen spends her weekends there. It was amazing seeing all the different rooms. They have a separate dressing room from the closet from the bedroom and just insane stuff like that.
