It was a Harry Potter dominated day yesterday. As mentioned we headed off to
studios. It is suggested that 3 hours is normally adequate to look around ...
we were there for 5!
If you are a fan it is incredible. We hired the digital guide - it is an iPhone with audio,
videos, photos and more. Along with the amazing sets, I didn't know what to look at first.
I took photos - over a 100! It's okay, I'm not going to post them all but there is quite a few today!
(Apologies if you are not a Harry Potter fan!)
We had a little wait before we started the tour so we took a look in the gift shop -
Elliott checking to see what is inside the Sorting Hat.
Does it suit me?? Yes Gryffindor!
The Great Hall - where is all the food??
Here is some - chocolate bunnies.
Potions Classroom (every one of those bottles is labelled!)
No.4 Privet Drive.
Not your everyday supplies!
I did sneak into one photo...
Wanted: Bellatrix Lestrange
(this is where Bella got her name - similar hair to be honest!)
The huge Hogwarts model - detail is amazing.
Purchases of the day:
Elliott decided upon the Marauders Map.
A chocolate frog and
Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans
(and yes, there is ear wax, dirt, earthworm along with sherbet lemon!)
I insisted he have a wand (I'm waving that furiously right now!)
After serious deliberation....
he chose Professor Snape's rather elegant black wand.
One of my favourite place in the books and films is The Burrow.
Here knitting gets done by magic...
It was such a great day, total escapism and fun.
I will be back soon...with craft!
Take care friends.
