The opening of the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour is set to be this year’s main event for fans of The Boy Who Lived – and it’s happening on 31 March 2012.

This great new attraction features sets, costumes and props from the hugely successful movies based on J.K. Rowling’s bestselling books, so it’s the perfect place to visit for a magical family day out.

Highlights of are set to include the Great Hall, Dumbledore’s office and Diagon Alley exhibits – but there’s so much to see that the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour website recommends that you set aside three hours to explore everything.

If you want to take the tour, you’ll need to book your tickets in advance through the attraction’s official website, as you can’t buy tickets on the door.

And, while you’re online booking your tickets, you can make your travel arrangements too. The attraction is situated in Leavesdon, just 10-minute train journey from London, so getting there is easy.

Just take the train to London and you can get a connecting service from London Euston Station to Watford Junction. You can then take a shuttle bus from the station to the Studio Tour – full details of this can be found on the Studio Tour’s website.

Even the most avid Harry Potter fan will be amazed at how much there is to see at the Studio Tour – but if it hasn’t satisfied your appetite for magic, you can also:

• Extend your stay by booking a hotel in London and taking a Harry Potter themed walking tour.

• Take the train to York and see the Hogwarts Express at the National Railway Museum.

• Jump on board a train to Oxford and take a walking tour to see locations used in the Harry Potter movies.

• Take the train to Edinburgh and enjoy lunch at the Elephant House coffee shop, where J.K. Rowling wrote ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’, and see the Balmoral Hotel, where she finished ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’.

• Visit Beaulieu Motor Museum to see Arthur Weasley’s flying Ford Anglia from the movie ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’. Take the train to Brockenhurst Station and get a taxi to the museum – or jump on a train to Southampton, and explore Beaulieu and the area’s many other attractions in a hire car.
