The Making of Harry Potter // Part 12


First off, I can't quite believe that in 4 days it will have been 1 whole year since we were actually at the Warner Brother Studio Tour! Secondly, I also can't believe, and am a little sad, that this is the 12th and very last blog post of photos - boo :(
Obviously, as our visit was in December, it was during the 'Hogwarts in the Snow' season and so that means just that - Hogwarts was covered in snow! I've seen a lot of people's blog posts from the Studio Tour and have no idea how they condense everything into one post, usually consisting of many castle snaps, because as you can see...this one post, the 12th in the series, is stacked full of Hogwarts from every angle I could photograph it from haha. I hope you enjoy.


Breathtaking eh? It's hard to come up with adjectives to describe it. I wanted to memorize every inch of it, especially the tiny details (you know I like those details haha) so like I said above, took a heck of a lot of photos!! The lighting made it difficult at points and I think it changed colours periodically so excuse the images not being perfect.
I know it's a huge thing and most people love to see Hogwarts all Christmassy but I would have loved to see the castle without the snow too, I imagine it'll look pretty different. Maybe one day I will return, but not just now as I hate London a lot and can only take it in extremely small doses haha.
Although they won't read it, a huge thanks to the couple who took Mam and I's photo after I offered to take theirs (I saw the 'selfie' struggle).


Last but not least I am including the wand room in this post too. I love this!! It's such a cool idea and way to include every single person who worked on the movie. We probably spent a little too long looking for as many people as we could, even with the lovely staff member assisting us haha. It was a lot of fun though.

And that's it. All of a sudden I'm at the end of this blogging journey :( I'm really gonna miss putting these posts together but I hope you have enjoyed them. If you haven't seen the rest, there are 11 other posts super duper full of photos, check them out!

  1. Ah, I love the castle! I love miniature things, it just amazes me how much detail you can get into them.

    I think it would look awesome without the snow, probably better. I wonder if the snow is hiding even more details. I would go just to see the castle.

    1. That's what I thought about the snow! Maybe when you're over at some point I'll come down and we can go together?! I saw they had a few of the costumes from Fantastic Beasts recently too.

    1. Aw thank you. It is isn't it?
      We spent SO much time searching for names but a lovely staff member came over and asked who we were looking for, so she pointed out a couple for us haha!

  3. These posts have been so much fun and as I've never been on the tour it's a nice glimpse into it and it keeps the magic alive too. I love the first few shots of the castle, it is breathtaking and I love the attention to detail. The wand room is great, I love that they've got the cast's names in their along with the crew - I love that! Thank you for all of these posts, they've kept my love for HP going! - Tasha

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you've enjoyed them!!
      I took so many photos of the castle, from every single angle and couldn't narrow it down haha.
      Yep, ever person who worked on the films in some way has a box - a very cool tribute to everyone.
      Thank YOU for always reading and commenting!!

  4. Noo, I can't believe it's over! I've been loving these posts, and I'm so sad to see them go :( For some reason, I imagined Hogwarts to be smaller. I guess I thought it would be a miniature diorama type thing?! Haha. It's huge! Lovely photos, as always, and thanks for sharing all your snaps with us. I've really enjoyed them! x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    1. Riggght?! 12 months worth of posts, it's gonna be so strange not having them any more.
      It is rather big but if it had been smaller it would be more difficult to control crowds in that room. Luckily it was pretty spacious with no pushing so I could take so many photos!
      Thank you so much for following the mini series <3
