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
We went to Oxford on the same day as our trip to Bicester Village. We visited Oxford in the morning, went to the university and strolled around the city before taking the train to Bicester. Oxford University was said to be the inspiration for JK Lawrence on Hogwarts and its famous dining hall.
Trip to Harry Potter museum in Leavesden
We purchased the combo bus ride+museum ticket. The bus to Leavesden leave from Victoria Coach Station. This is also the reason why we chose accommodation in Victoria area. I write in detail about our visit here.
