WB Studio Tour // The Great Hall at Halloween


Waayy back in October, (seriously can't believe it's been 4 months...), Mam and I made the hike of a journey down to London to meet up with Kerri and celebrate my birthday! We had it booked many months in advance because I'm me, but we were very lucky that the History of Magic exhibition at the British Library was announced a little while after and it was actually going to be on while we were in London! That never happens to me haha. So on our first day there we attended the amazing exhibition, although I'm so gutted you weren't allowed to take any photos so the only memories I have from it are a leaflet and the books.
Anyway, to the point of this post. The original point of our trip was Mam and I's second (and Kerri's first) visit to the WB Studio Tour - this time for the Dark Arts feature!!! Ooohhhh!

Our first time at the tour was back in December 2015 so of course we experienced Hogwarts in the Snow, it was pretty and all except I'm not a Christmas person. This time the Great Hall was decked out for the best season ever! HALLOWEEN!


Just look at those colours! Stunning. 
Instead of the usual floating candles, the enchanted night sky ceiling was adorned with awesome Jack O' Lanterns as you can see and the moment those doors opened (although I had already experienced it) was jaw-dropping, just insane. 
I could have spent all day just in there taking photos of every detail but you have to move on after a short amount of time to let the next group come through to the same spectacular empty hall that greets you. Thankfully, if you wish, you may then go back in and join them to take more photos which I did this time as the last visit I didn't get to photograph the teachers and stuff as much as I'd of liked to. 
Especially for the season, you can also see that Helena Ravenclaw aka The Grey Lady's dress as well as Professor Quirrell's outfit was on display also. 

 I'm so glad that I've finally found the time top crack on editing photos and get this series started! I hope you enjoy looking back at my photos with me and you can compare them to my previous trip in the posts linked below!

Have you been to the WB Studio Tour, Leavesden? Tell me about it!

(Ooh, ps. thank you, Kerri, for the photos of me trying to show off my Hufflepuff tattoo!)

  1. I saw all the Harry Potter movies last year and I want to go to WB Studio Tour. Maybe I'll be able to do it this year. I've been in London this month, but I had other things planned. I never have enough time to see everything I want.

    1. It's well worth a visit if you get the time! So much to see and learn. I'm the same, so many places I'd like to go but there is so much to see and so little time in which to see it!

  2. Ah, I'd have so loved to have gone to the WB Studio Tour at Halloween! It looks amazing. I love that they decorate for seasonal events like Christmas and Halloween, it's such a great idea. x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    1. It was amazing. I wish it had been my first visit but I'm glad I was able to actually take photos properly this time without blubbing everywhere!

  3. It's been years and years since we went to the Studio tour, and I really need to go again! The kids have grown so much since the last time and they'd really appreciate it (unlike last time where I dragged them along purely 'cos I really wanted to go!)

    1. Oh there is SO much more there now too. It's even changed in just the couple years between my 2 visits. It is somewhere you can literally spend ALLLL day.
