  • When: 23, 29 March - tours start between 5pm and 7:30pm
  • Event closing time is 11.59 p.m.
  • Where: Warner Bros, Studio Tour London, Leavesden


Once doors have closed to the public on 23rd and 29th March 2018, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter will welcome Groupon members for an exclusive event. Available for entry from 5.00pm, guests will be granted after-hours access to the Studio Tour which showcases authentic sets, props and costumes from the Harry Potter film series.

Guests can walk the flagstones of the iconic Hogwarts Great Hall before viewing many of the famous sets – including the Ministry of Magic, Dumbledore’s office, and the Gryffindor common room. They’ll also get an exclusive look at the newest expansion: The Forbidden Forest.

The Forbidden Forest may be strictly off-limits to Hogwarts students, but Groupon guests are invited to follow the footsteps of Harry, Ron and Hermione deep into the forest, which is home to an abundance of creatures. Guests will be welcomed through the Hogwarts Gates by the beloved half-giant Hagrid deep into the forest which is filled with 19 trees each with a diameter of over 12 feet.

Visitors will walk beneath the giant entwined roots and encounter a full-size model of Buckbeak, and have the opportunity to bow to the majestic creature. As Groupon guests venture deeper into the depths of the forest, they will come face-to-face with Aragog, the Acromantula. Emerging from his dark lair, the enormous spider will appear before guest along with spiderlings from his family.

While exploring the attraction, guests will also be able to enjoy experiences that have been specifically added for Groupon members like enjoying a special wand making demonstration courtesy of the Prop-Making Department who worked with head Prop Maker, Pierre Bohanna, from the Harry Potter film series. They’ll get the chance to learn wand moves and can ‘fly’ a broomstick like a member of the cast in the Studio Tour’s green screen experience.

During a short break in the attraction’s Backlot café or Lobby Cafe, guests will be able to enjoy a selected hot meal; a glass of wine, beer, hot or soft drink; and a Butterbeer™ served in a souvenir cup to take home! They’ll also get the chance to meet the Death Eaters as they patrol the Hogwarts Gates. All guests will receive a complimentary Forest edition of the souvenir guidebook on arrival and the tour will stay open until midnight on these special nights.

My missus dragged me around this. It is really really boring .


To some people, watching 90+ minutes of random blokes kicking a ball, is really really boring.
I would like to share, that I did the same Harry Potter closed doors Studio Tour some years back when it was on Groupon just like this one is, Yes it Included all of the above, essentially however all this means is you get to go after the venue closes which is early evening, so even though the deal is saving you money to enjoy this closed doors event, you need to book a night in a hotel or B+B as I did, the event did not finish until around 11pm at night, I am presuming this will be similar, this makes it harder for anyone traveling on Public Transport, the Meal at the Event was a Simple Hotdog with some Butter Bear and the Souvenir was a Event Guide Brochure (Usually £10), 1 Harry Potter Badge & Cheap Harry Potter Pen so when you calculate the cost of stopping over night, traveling at night etc, its not worth it, I did actually regret not going in the day as a normal visitor I would have saved more money. The Atmosphere was also not the same as been a traditional visitor in the daytime, the excitement and buzz was just not the same, since there are a lot less people, at the event there was around 50-70 people max, which is fantastic in some respects as you get to see everything without queuing up but the entire night just felt like walking around a almost empty museum of Harry Potter with very little excitement or buzz about it all, The staff & tour guides was not so happy or excited as they are during the day either, probably because they have been asked to worked extra shifts, I left disappointed, to conclude it might sound exciting and a great way to save money, but on reflection its not really....

is this £42.46 per person?

is this £42.46 per person?


nevermind..I did some research
but when you pick 2 people you only get the discount off once and 2x, so one does still pay the normal price.
Buy it twice then for each person

Damn it... bought tickets today for dates in May! Then come across this... £3 extra per person for food, drink, and souvenirs.

the voucher doesn't make any mention of the food, drink and souvenirs
As someone who liked the movies but was never a massive fan, I had a great time on this and spent 4 hours wandering around (before the dark forest and Platform 9 3/4 extensions) I loved the attention to detail shown.

what hot meal?


One of the following is included: Hot dog, veggie dog, chicken goujons, lasagne (I think), along with a drink and a butterbeer.
My nippers would love this, but they've already blagged me for Disney ice in March, and that's cost me a fortune already, although I think I'd enjoy this more personally.
Brilliant place. So much detail and work that has gone into everything. You would have to be pretty closed minded to not appreciate what is shown, even if you didn’t like the movies.

Thanks for your input!
Did the tour during the normal day with the family about 18 months ago and thought it was brilliant but then I'm a fan of the books and to a lesser extent the films. The attention to detail is phenomenal and much of what I thought was CGI in the films was actually animatronics so that was a nice surprise. The final thing you see on the tour is a real jaw-dropper.

My advice would be don't bother with the audio guides as we hardly used them so ended up as just another thing to carry around.

It's REALLY expensive once inside but that's no great surprise. Butterbeer is a rip-off for a tiny plastic cup and tastes like liquified sugar. Queues are usually massive for a photo in the flying car or broomstick so don't bother. There's some gift shops dotted around and as warned are expensive. One item that sticks out in my mind was a bomber jacket for about £300-odd quid and sweatshirts about £75.

We stayed in Watford city centre in the Premier Inn IIRC the night before. I wouldn't do that again. The hotel was fine in itself (and the free breakfast was nice) but, holy ****, it was the hottest hotel room I've ever stayed in! No air-con, the fan was basically useless and opening the window just allowed all of the noise from the Watford traffic and revellers in until 3am (and this was a Thursday during school time). So we were pretty knackered during the tour. Watford is a nice place though and I recommend the Wetherspoons pub for a bite to eat.

I went on this Groupon tour a couple of months ago. It is after general public opening times so there aren't any queues for the picture related locations. Big queue to get in, but they let one group in around 15 minutes after the other so it doesn't get too crowded inside. The free food and drink isn't worth even collecting, the butterbeer is absolutely vile and the hot dog was like eating cold rubber. Our tour started around 4.30pm and we left around 8pm. I'm not really bothered about Harry Potter, but it was still interesting.

Also dont forget 14% cashback on quidco if it tracks
Myself and my fiancee went on the groupon deal in December and had been before on a Buyagift deal with lunch at a nearby hotel. I actually enjoyed the closed door experience far more. I was not especially keen to go in the first place but found it to be fine for a few hours although disgustingly expensive for purchases inside (Guess im too used to all the bargains on HUKD) Since our first visit they opened the forest part and the future Mrs was keen to see Hogwarts at XMAS. With the meal, guide & Butterbeer it made it a decent enough saving - we stayed at a Travelodge but were not impressed with that so would have driven home. The event ran until midnight so it meant you could go round and actually see the displays , they also opened the house that Harry lived in which was shut on our first visit, had displays on how they make the ice and snow effects and deatheaters wandering about. Queues were not as bad as the first visit so overall it would be how I would recommend doing it. I enjoyed the films but am no way an enthiusiast and found it to be a nice way to spend a few hours. I don't think id go back again but I managed to make the most of it and didn't find it boring as I found the Animatronics and SFX sections fairly engaging as well as being blown away by Hogwarts at the end. Comparing this to some of the other things to do out there although far from cheap with the extras included it is def a deal so heat given!
Did this before xmas. Very very cold evening, but it was fantastic. Cafe food, wine or beer and butter beer along with souvenir brochure took us over 5 hours to get around and still could have done more.

Although take a few credit cards😳 shop was very expensive. And they do get you during the tour with cgi screen opportunities that can be costly.
I did the winter one a few months back. Was great, but don't expect much to be different from normal entry apart from the free meal and 'bleh' butterbeer. Entered around 3 so didn't need to stay the night.

The benefit I see in the Groupon events is the lack of children (who go on other days with family tickets). Mind you, it was amusing to see some kids freaked out by the deatheaters and refuse to enter the forest
