Are you looking to visit the Harry Potter Studio in London? Are you looking for Last Minute tickets and they are sold out on the official website?
Don’t worry, we have the solution for you!
Updated information about the reopening after COVID-19 closure
We are happy to announce that the Harry Potter Studio will reopen on the 20th of August 2020 after several months of closure due to COVID-19. Safety measures are in place to guarantee a safe visit. Take the chance to visit the World of Harry Potter now that the number of visitors per day is more limited and you can enjoy a more private and exciting experience.
How can I buy the Harry Potter Studio Tour London Last Minute when the tickets are sold out on the official website?
As you have probably seen already on the official website, the tickets sell out very fast and it is almost impossible to get a ticket last minute. Normally, you need to book the tickets in advance, usually 3-4 months ahead.
However, the good news is that there are a lot of resellers that can sell the tickets and you can check all of them to see if something is available. You are also in the right place to avoid checking tens of websites: in fact, TourScanner aggregates all of them and you can easily check what is available.
There are also few tours leaving from Birmingham, if this is an option for you. You might book one and meet your group at the Warner Bros Studio if you are located in Central London and you cannot leave from Birmingham.
If you don’t find anything available on TourScanner, then, it’s probably really sold out everywhere. However, even though you will not be able to visit the Warner Bros Studio, you can visit other places and landmarks in London in which the movie was recorded, such a Diagon Alley, Platform 9 ¾, Gringott’s Bank, etc. The price for such guided walking tours starts from £15 (about 17€). Click here to find several Harry Potter landmarks walking tours.
A last option is to join a Harry Potter Locations Tour in Oxford, if you plan to visit Oxford. Many scenes were filmed in the old University of Oxford.
Are the tickets available on resale?
Yes, the tickets are sold on resale very often. There are several resellers that offer several kinds of tours at a different price. We recommend using a search engine like TourScanner to many websites offering tickets on resale.
Is it possible that the tickets become available again in the next days?
Yes, it is possible and it happens quite frequently, especially on weekdays. It happens because people can cancel their visits and it might happen up to a few days in advance (very seldom 1-2 days before). If you do not find anything available now, we recommend keeping looking during the next days to see if something comes back again on resale. A good idea is always to check TourScanner, so you make sure to see if something becomes available on one of the several websites that offer the tickets on resale.
Can I see anything similar to the Harry Potter Studio?
If you are a fan of Harry Potter or your kids push you to see something about it, we recommend booking a tour showing the landmarks of the movie which are available in London outside the Warner Bros. Studios, such a Diagon Alley, Platform 9 ¾, Gringott’s Bank, etc. These tours are designed on purpose for those who cannot get the tickets for the Studios cause they were sold out. The price is rather cheap (from £15) and the tours have excellent customer reviews. Check all the Harry Potter Locations tours.

Are there any cheap Harry Potter Studio tickets?
Yes and no. The price for this attraction is rather expensive, but it always depends on the value of the visit for each of us. The cheapest tickets that you can find are on the official website.

Usually, there are not 2 for 1 offers. This attraction is visited by many families as well. Therefore, there are mainly discounts for kids. However, especially in peak season, discounts and special deals are not very common. But several resellers are offering different prices and therefore you can find cheap deals by comparing them.

Are there any discounts?
From the official website, there are special prices available for primary, secondary schools or sixth form colleges within the UK who follow the National Curriculum.
