“Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”
― J.K. Rowling
Rowling should have also added the studio tour into this quote. There is a comforting familiarity and child-like excitement when visiting Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. And, the anticipation of returning to the studios, for me, is always off the scale!
The Making of Harry Potter is a travel highlight, a literary dream come true and a step into the world of big movie magic. Wave your wand, book a ticket and take a look at what’s in store for you.
If you’ve been before, well prepare to get nostalgic because these post is going to bring back some great memories! And, if you haven’t, well you’re in for a real treat.
Don’t worry, this post and my series of posts is spoiler free…
And, by that, I mean the big reveals aren’t in this blog. There’s pictures of what to expect inside but, that’s it. It’s too magical an experience to want to ruin it for someone else. If there’s anything specific you’d like to know, head to the comments section at the end or my Instagram and I can answer any DMs.

Would you believe me when I say The National Army Museum is like a beautiful art gallery for the Army’s history?
Well, you should. It’s beautiful, well thought through, in the heart of Chelsea a short walk from Sloane Square and it doesn’t cost a penny to go in!
I’ll just say, while I’m probably not the target demographic of the museum, I will definitely be keeping an eye out on its future exhibitions.
At the time of writing this there had just been an exhibition on graphic design and one opened on the day I went called Tribute Ink, based on armed forces tattoos.
What a great discovery!

It had been a long time since I’d visited Kew Gardens and I had certainly never been to on if its ‘after dark’ events.
American artist Dale Chihuly created some beautiful glass sculptures influenced by flora and fauna which was a natural fit for the Royal Botanic Gardens in London.
This magical exhibition cleverly used colour, light and music to bring a magnificent artistic twist to the landscape while giving exclusive access to the gardens after hours.
I tried my best to capture these stunning installations, take a look…

The trend for small plates is slowly coming over from Australia and New Zealand and it’s a foodie fashion I can get behind.
Caravan Bankside is a great place to experience this trend, it has a well-travelled menu, it’s based in an old metal box factory and it’s nestled in an emerging area of London.
Headed to London soon? Take a look…

Borough Market is one of my favourite places in London. I’ve always gone to the same places when I visits, because they are my favourite, but lately I’ve tried to try one new place every time I go.
My latest discovery in the market is Bread Ahead, it’s the perfect place to go for a sweet treat and mid-afternoon pick-me-up!
Sugary shots of beautiful baked goods are just one click away…
