KidRated | Best Family Days Out, DIY Fun & Games in London


This place is exactly as you’d expect… magical! I’ve been several times and it never gets old. I love it as a teenager and I know that kids love it too. Not only are you immersed in the wizarding world, you get to see behind the scenes of film making that might’ve never even crossed your mind. I also love that it’s worth going every few years as they are always adding more interesting exhibits. Make sure to try the butterbeer and maybe try to go at Christmas because it’s so magically festive!

  • This isn’t a cheap day out but these are the real Harry Potter film sets so it is recommended.
  • After being led into the Great Hall, you’re free to explore so try to stick together or have a plan to find each other before seeing the exhibits outside.
  • Don’t play hide and seek inside. Yeah, I learned my lesson as it took ages to find the kids!
  • Butterbeer is so sweet it makes your teeth hurt but, go on, you can only buy it here.
  • The shop is pricey so limit the souvenirs to something small.

    Recently went here for the second time, kids were 5 years older than the first time we went and it was just as magical and fascinating this time. Yes it is expensive, but a complete treat for any Harry Potter or film fan young or old, 10/10 from this 50 year old, wish all family days put were this good!!!

  2. Sue Baker

    Amazing day out. I went with my son,12, another Mum and son and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! We literally spent all day there and ate in the restaurant (really good varied menu, reasonable prices). You really feel as if you are on set and there are some great green screen photo opportunities. Not the cheapest day in the round but one of the best and most memorable. Would highly recommend

    What a place! I thought I’d heard everything there was to hear about this as so many friends had taken their children – but I was completely unprepared for how brilliant it was. Took our 5 and 7 year old boys and spent an incredible 6 hours there and we all loved every single second. Well worth the money and a very definite 10/10, magical!

    We took our 8 year old son for his birthday with 3 friends of the same age , they absolutely loved it, as did the elders. Plenty of interactive exhibits to bring the filming alive and great to see so many well known sets up close. This would suit children ( and adults ) of all ages who are old enough to see the films and appreciate the detail and effort in every scene. Easy to find , park and explore , took around 3 hours and great fun . Would definitely consider a return visit in a few years time once the kids are older and can appreciate the more technical aspects. Only down side is the cost and expensive gift shop ( especially the wands ! ) Fabulous day out 10/10 !
