Americans moving to London often have a hard time getting their children excited about the upcoming international relocation. While there is no guaranteed way to get them on board with the rest of the family there is a wonderful new exhibit coming to London in March of 2012. Warner Brothers, London Studios will be unveiling the much anticipated The Making of Harry Potter tour and exhibit. Open to the public this three hour tour might actually make an international relocation worth it all.
Located just a twenty mile drive from London WB London is a perfect day trip for a family fresh to London. All ticket purchases must be made in advance and cost £28 for adults and £21 for children ages five to sixteen. Children four and under are free but do require a ticket be ordered in advance. Discounts are given for families and groups.
Included in the tour are props, costumes and relics from the beloved movies. Visitors can explore actual sets used in all the movies and experience Hogwarts in ways never imagined. Some of the actual sets from the movies for visitors to tour are the Great Hall at Hogwarts, Dumbledore’s office, Hagrid’s hut, and the Gryffindor common room.
Also included in the tour are displays showing how animatronics were used in the film series and special effects creation. The tour is primarily self-guided and WB estimates it will take families three hours to complete. Also included at WB is a café and gift shop. A day at WB exploring the secrets and real sets of the Harry Potter movie series is a great way for Americans moving to begin exploring their new country.
Relocation agents are happy to help those moving here with transportation arrangement in regards to visiting WB. There are several transportation options for families living in London besides an automobile. With so many families electing not to purchase a car after a corporate relocation it is comforting to know that relocation agents can help families prepare for a journey to Hogwarts.
