A few months back, my friend and I decided to book a trip to London. I knew that if I ever got the chance to visit the UK, I would not leave until I went to Harry Potter World. So, we booked our tickets, and two months later, here we are! And listen to me when I say this. Harry Potter World was hands down, one of the best places I have EVER been to in my entire life! WARNING: If you are not a Harry Potter fan and don’t want to listen to me go on and on about it, then skip this post, because that’s all it’s about!
We had our tour scheduled for the same day as our arrival, so we pretty much went straight from the airport to Harry Potter World (and by that I mean a solid four hour journey by buses trying to do the “super budget” option). The journey was well worth it!
So without further ado, enjoy all of these wonderful pictures of the most magical place I’ve ever been to!
So, possibly the coolest thing about going to Harry Potter World, was that we just so happened to be there on the opening day of the Forbidden Forrest. Best. Luck. Ever. You get to walk though the “Forbidden Forrest”, and see Hagrid, Buckbeak, and even all the spiders from the film. They had thunder and lighting going off, even a fog machine! It was seriously so cool walking through it!
At the end of the tour you get to actually see Hogwarts. But it’s not the huge castle you would expect to see. It’s actually scaled down to fit inside a room that you can walk around and see at every angle. This means that almost every scene in the films where you see the castle are likely this model. Pretty amazing when you think about it.
When it was all over, I was ready to hop back in line, and do it all again. I swear it was one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been, and I hope it stays around for a long long time so I can visit again! If you are a Harry Potter fan, then you must add this to your bucket list and make it happen. This was one of the many things I have done in London, and it will always be my favorite!
Anyways, thanks for reading guys, even if this is like three months late! I’m finally getting organized and putting up some posts from my travels the past couple of months. I hope you’re all enjoying your week and are as excited for summer as I am! Until next time.
