I would like to take my family to see this as they are huge HP fans. The reviews all seem good, so I think it must be worth the money.
It's a fair drive for us, about 4 hours, so I was hoping to stay over in a hotel the night before. Can anyone recommend a good hotel (medium cost!)? It doesn't have to be too close, we are coming from the west, so anywhere between the M4/M25 junction and Watford, but I don't know that area at all. We would want a family room for 2 adults and 2 children.
And any tips about when to go? Anything particular we should know?
Thanks - this is really timely for us, too, as we'd have to drive (not quite as far as Primrose) because DH will be wanting to use his electric mobility scooter. I'll look out the other thread and link to it.
YES!!!! Me & my DD who is 13 went in May-it was brill, well worth the money!! We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Watford Junction, which is literally less than a 2 minute walk from Watford Junction train station-you can actually see the top of the hotel when you walk out the station!! The hotel was fab!! We had a package deal from Super Break. 1 adult & 1 child for return tickets Leicester to Watford Junction, 2 Harry Potter Studio Tour tickets & a twin room with breakfast at the Holiday Inn Express all for £195!! Ithought that was a brill deal!!
Re HP Studios allow about 4 hours to get round and see it all/take it all in. The food at the snack place half way through wasn't very good, not sure about the cafe when you come in. But if you are planning on eating there, you will need to allow time before your visit. It was very busy when we went (at start of school hols) and they weren't allowing anyone in before their time slot but friends of ours who went in term time (at the weekend) were allowed in early.
