Hogwarts opens its doors, but are ticket prices out of this world?
It’s what Harry Potter fans around the world have been waiting for: on March 31, the hugely anticipated Warner Bros Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter will open at Watford’s Leaveseden studios.
Visitors will be able to wander around some of the film’s most iconic sets such as the Great Hall, the Ministry of Magic, Professor Umbridge’s office and Harry’s famous cupboard under the stairs in Little Whingeing and experience the sets, stunning costumes and special effects that were used in all eight of the Potter flicks, first hand.
That everyone gets to go to Hogwarts sounds magical right? Wrong: sadly the prices are also out of this world. Tickets for the three hour tour (which are on sale now) cost a colossal £28 for adults and £21 for children.
Sure it’s cheaper than a ticket to the US (where Potter fanatics have been able to visit Universal Studios’ The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, Florida) but it’s still a hefty investment. True a ticket to a football game is around the same mark (I’ve just bought my old man a pair of tickets to see his team Watford play Coventry at £26 a pop) but for a family of four it nonetheless equals an expensive afternoon out.
