2012 Flashback: The Harry Potter Studio Tour

Travel

Hello,

If you saw my two blog posts in March about my trips to New York and Orlando, you’ll know that every now and then I’m going to be posting some trip pictures which have never made it to my blog before and I thought today, I would share another.

“Welcome, to Diagon Alley..” 

On the 2nd of September 2012, my parents treated me to a trip to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London for my Graduation present. Now, if you are new to my blog then you won’t know that I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and if you visit here often, you’ll be fed up of me talking about it.

We were in London on Saturday and Sunday. On the first day, we visited a castle (the name has gone out of my brain, oops) and had afternoon tea in a crooked teashop. Then, on the Sunday I woke up after having little sleep due to excitement, we headed off to the studio.

*Disclaimer: What I will say is that we went on a coach and this was all part of some deal my Mum discovered. I totally wish HP sponsored me but they don’t.

I hope you enjoyed this picture based post. I didn’t want to go into detail like “turn left here, turn right there” because it would spoil it for people who haven’t been. 

Let me know if the comments below if you’ve been!
