I have been a massive, I mean MASSIVE HP fan since I first read the second book.(Chamber of Secrets) Okay, technically I started in the wrong order, and It didn’t make complete sense at first. But after my mum realised she had given me the wrong one first, I re-read the first few books and I instantly fell in love with the magic and creativity of the stories. So when they announced the arrival of the Harry Potter films, I could barely contain my excitement. So over the last 10 years we have had the conclusion of the books and 8 feature films. For any ‘HP’ fan, we would instantly say how the films don’t do any justice to the books themselves, as there is just too much detail to be able to converse everything into the movie. But what we are all grateful for is that it brings this incredible magical world alive for us in front of our eyes.
So when I found out that in spring 2012, the world renowned Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden, home to the Harry Potter studios, would be opening for specialised tours, I WAS SO UTTERLY EXCITED. Like a little kid on Christmas day.
The website describes that, the unique walking tour takes you behind-the-scenes and showcases a huge array of beautiful sets, costumes and props. It also reveals some closely guarded secrets, including facts about the special effects and breathtaking animatronics that made these films so hugely popular all over the world. *OMG, SO EXCITED*
They don’t give much more away, other than the tour lasts approximately 3 hours, some parts of the tour are interactive and gives you a fully hands-on experience. *WOW *
So my tickets are now booked for April 8th 2012 with my dearest Harriet (my Harry Potter partner in crime)
We will be there with our Gryffindor scarves and HP glasses.
I am counting down the days....literally.
