To be fully immersed with Harry Potter experience which is the current theme of our UK trip, these are the 3 places must visit in London:
- Platform 9 3/4 in Kings cross station
- Christ Church college in Oxford, inspiration for Hogwart school
- Harry Potter Warner Bros museum in Leavesden. This is the main highlight of our trip. Ticket must be reserved in advance as they are easily sold out especially on the weekends.
Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross stations
You would find the Platform 9 3/4 if you go to the Train Station at Kings Cross. They have set up a specific photo spot and props for all the tourist to take pictures. They also offer photographed service for a fee.
Christ Church College in Oxford
Oxford, The City of Dreaming Spires, is famous for its University and place in history. For over 800 years, it has been a home to royalty and scholars, and since the 9th century an established town, although people are known to have lived in the area for thousands of years. Nowadays, the city is a bustling cosmopolitan town. Still with its ancient University, but home also to a growing hi-tech community. Many businesses are located in and around the town, whether on one of the Science and Business Parks or within one of a number of residential areas.
With its mix of ancient and modern, there is plenty for both the tourist and resident to do. Whether its visiting one of the many historic buildings, colleges or museums, going out for a drink or a meal, taking in a show or shopping till you drop, Oxford has it all.
We went to Oxford on a half day trip from London. We went inside Christ Church College which was said to be the inspiration for JK Lawrence on Hogwarts and its famous dining hall and take a stroll around the city before taking the bus to Bicester Village.
Trip to Harry Potter museum in Leavesden
This is a definite Must List to Visit for Harry Potter’s Fans. We purchased the combo bus ride+museum ticket way in advance prior to coming to London. To get here, the bus to Leavesden leave from Victoria Coach Station. Another reason why we chose accommodation in Victoria area.
