Ok so the studio tour was absolutly fantastic! I really want to go again, there was so much to see and even do.

First of all the little movies that we watched before we go in are really good. There is one short movie and then the tour group moves in to a big cinema screen room where everyone watches a film that is a little longer. At the end it is fantastic (I won't spoil it for you but make sure you sit at the front and then literally run to front when they ask you to come forward). Before the tour actually starts you can see the cupboard under the stairs and molds of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint's hands. Emma has really small hands, Daniel has the same size hands as me (they are quite long) which is another reason why we are meant to be. Rupert has the biggest hands out of all three.

I had the amazing opportunity to be the only person to open the great hall doors which was amazing! I was so excited I could not stop crying and grinning.

The tour itself is brilliant there is so much in the first stage and you even have the opportunity to have a green screen of the flying Ford Anglia and a broomstick. I only tried the broomstick as the car didn't look that good to me.

The backlot is brilliant. I could not fault it. Everything was just so big and fantastic. You can buy butterbeer for £3 while you are in the backlot but I didn't like the taste and ended up throwing it away.

The stage after that is the creature effects and animatronics which was amazing. I spotted a dead dummy of Harry on one of the shelves which was pretty weird to see. Next up is the little models which look really interesting but then after that is the full scale model of Hogwarts which is so beautiful and breathtaking. When they dimmed down the lights so you could see all the little details just made everything even more beautiful. Me and my sister went dressed up as Hogwarts students (I was Gryffindor and she was Hufflepuff) and up until that point we where the only ones dressed up. The lights where dimmed down and then I saw two people walk past me and I jumped. They where dressed up as Bellatrix Lestrange and Lord Voldemort which was amazing! He had a bald cap and everything!!!

The gift shop is equally fantastic- there is so much but the price of some of the stuff is far too high. I bought two pictures, a guidebook and a Gryffindor badge but there is much more and they all cater to each of the houses. The staff are also really friendly and helpful especially the guy doing the pictures at the gift shop, I had a nice little chat with him as well as out tour guide.

Overall it was a great experience and I seriously want to do it again!
